Crow’s Nest Camp week five

August 5, 2013

I wasn’t actually present during the 7/8 camp at Crow’s Nest last week, so I have to rely on the photos and the (perhaps biased) description from the other counselors.

But it appears we had an unusually outgoing, friendly group of 7th and 8th graders at camp this year. No sullen teenagers on the first day, here.


The campers performed a service project that will benefit campers of all ages in coming years at Crow’s Nest: building a footbridge to a play area along French Creek.


There was kayaking on Scotts Run Lake and on the Schuylkill River, the better to put in context Natural Lands Trust’s conservation efforts in the region.


Climbing the rocks at Natural Lands Trust’s Fulshaw Craeg Preserve… and cleaning up the kayaks before returning them—so that we don’t inadvertently introduce plants or animals into different watersheds.
