Sun and Overnights
Today was a busy day for the Hird! Pac and Windsong both left for their 2 night overnights. Windsong are spending their first night at Merrill Pavilion which has a panoramic view of the Catskills (they’ll see one of the most spectacular sun rises tomorrow morning) and Pac are staying at Pine Grove which is nestled into the trees next to the Neversink river. Tomorrow night they’ll switch places and Thursday they’ll make their way back to camp.
Pac give the camera the ‘Hang Loose’ sign before heading out on their hike
Windsong have a village meeting before leaving
W for Windsong!
Off they go!
While our overnights went out the other villages in the Hird were doing a mix of different activities, some of them active, some of them geared towards getting to know campers in other villages.
Hemlock played Geronimo with Al (Find a seat!)
Sacky and Tacoma did some activities to get to know each other (Speed Friending and The Friendship Game)
Tacoma and Lenape played Beat the Clock Charades (Charades with a time limit between the teams).
Tomorrow Tacoma and Lenape join the overnights, stay tuned for photos of the overnight sites!
