Crow’s Nest Camp 2023 Week Four
By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager.
Our fourth week of camp was for 3rd and 4th graders and built upon the familiarity of the preserve many of the kids had gained in past years’ camps. There are new places on the preserve to discover and more ways to engage with the land. For some of the kids this was their first full-day camp at Crow’s Nest, following the half day camps we offer younger kids.
As with other camp weeks we did small group hikes, played in the stream, and went on hayrides.
Kids also spent time building a community in the play area. Scaffolding provided a basis for homes the kids embellished with hammocks, swings, roofs, walls and doors, as well as tin-can telephones and decorations.
As usual, there was plenty of free play time to enjoy.
