Crow’s Nest: Camp Week Two
By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager
We had another delightful week of camp, this time for fourth and fifth graders. The kids built new tree houses in the woods. In addition to creating spaces to hang out in this group added a tin-can telephones between the five tree houses and rudimentary “text messaging”—pencil and pad of paper carried through the air between the trees in baskets on rope and pulleys.
We had time to go to the stream each day.
On small group hikes we made ephemeral natural art, painted water colors, sketched botanical drawings, and did photography. And of course, we visited the steers and Duffy the goat.
The barn was again transformed into an art gallery and an opening was held of Friday afternoon for the families of the artists.
