Overnight Bonding



Wawayanda’s one-week village, Thunderbird went on their overnight this evening! We stopped in to see them and hung out with them while they enjoyed pita pizzas, s’mores, and the campfire. The Thunderbird boys played a creative game of tag invented by one of the campers, while the girls hung out underneath the tarps (photo above) and helped their counselors with fire building. Check back tomorrow for photos from Susky and Forest’s overnights!
