Time really does fly when you’re having fun! And luckily the rain held out for us all day! AdVill started the day off right, where campers could choose their own adventure of ziplining or mountain boarding. After barely getting their feet back on the ground, there was another session of rock climbing for those who hadn’t climbed yesterday.
We are half-way through our session already! You know what that means… it’s time for the mini-trip! The entire village will split into 3 groups tomorrow. One group will backpack up and over Table and Peekamoose Mountains (2 Catskills High Peaks!), one will get to go rock climbing in the Trapps (part of Mohonk Preserve), and one group will get to explore Minnewaska State Park and Mohonk Preserve by bike!
After lunch today, and welcomed rest hour, AdVill campers dove into learning the hard skills needed for the mini-trip. Campers learned what and how to pack properly for their mini-trip, and learned some of the basic skills needed to live and camp in the Catskills, such as starting a fire and pitching a tent or a tarp.
Adventure Village will be off camp tomorrow and won’t return until Thursday evening, but I’m sure they will have lots of stories and awesome pictures when they return!
