Today campers took part in Geronimo a get to know you game ran by Frost Valley alumni Al Filreis, Paint twister, creeking, waterfront and some educational activities such as gardening where camper learn how to plant and care for homegrown fruit and vegetables, they then went to incredible edibles where they get to prepare and cook fresh healthy meals from start to finish, given them good food and a good sense of accomplishment. Some of the older campers in the village got to step up and lead hard skill classes to Sacky a younger female village on camp, this is where adventure camper teach other the useful and essential skill they need to succeed on an over night or mini trip. This is a great opportunity for adventure campers to take a leadership role on camp and give them a feel for the work their counselors do here at camp.

Tonight Adventure Village and joined force with STEP and left the comforts of the Dinning Hall to grill their own meal. STEP stands for Supportive Training Employment Program and is a part of the MAC program.
