Welcome to Session 2 of the 2009 Summer!!!!! Already we are having so much fun and I just wanted to fill you in a little on the end of last session as well as highlight some of the incredible things we’ve already experienced!
After all the fun at Pete’s Pavilion we came finished off the weekend with Colonial Day and the chill team building time on Sunday (including a movie night in the hayloft of the animal barn!) The rest of the week flew by as the campers got to sign up for more advanced classes in Animal Care, Gardening, Hiking, and Theater. We finished out the week with an another amzing Farm Camp Tradition – Farm Fest! With fun community games and a PBJ relay race, grilled hamburgers & some of our own home -made Ice-Cream before the final photo slide show – it was a day to remember!
All the counselors really had a great time learning and sharing with the campers first session and one of the coolest things that happened in one of our new camper-choice classes (Creekside Nature Poetry) – a lovely set of lines from Solange was written and she gave me permission to share with you all…
Pebbles reflecting and obscured
Hazy around the edges
Dark and light
Smooth and hard
Like so many souls
In the twisted path of fate
Like lifetimes suspended
In the cold
Cold path of destiny
Hovering above the water
Wooden plants moldering
Inches away from the sweeping tides
Of forgotten times departing
From somewhere to elsewhere.
The icy river runs
Pulling away the washed-out souls
Of those who are never to return.
Whispering slowly with but a ripple
To mark the passing of yesterday.
— Thanks Solange for sharing those with us!!!
