Crow’s Nest: Camp Week One
This week we had a great bunch of kids at camp and we managed to dodge the many thunderstorms that rolled through. Appropriately enough the theme this week was water: Nature’s Plumbing.
In the barn the kids got a chance to be water molecules being pulled up inside a giant plant stem via capillary action:
Down at the creek they acted out the water cycle, evaporating and then precipitating back down the sliding board:
The water extravaganza included, of course, a water balloon toss.
There was time to play in the woods.
Among the discoveries there was this yellow-spotted salamander:
In the barn the kids built rafts out of recycled materials: old boards, milk jugs, and mesh laundry bags.
They really float! This is the regatta on French Creek.
We also went on small group hikes. Mine went to visit the goats and calves. Here Duffy enjoys the attention.
