Crow’s Nest Teen Workday

June 18, 2012

We had a great workday today with emeritus (“classic,” “vintage,” or perhaps “aged-out”) campers who came back to help set up for the younger kids at Crow’s Nest Camp that starts next week. Among other tasks, the older kids moved wood and other supplies from storage into the woods where the campers will use them to build a giant ant hill, painted a new set of towel racks to dry wet towels for when the kids return from the creek, put together the “exoskeletons” of giant ants made out of plastic bottles we are temporarily diverting from recycling, unbuilt a shelter made from “found” materials in the woods (so that the kids can build it again), and did some major earthmoving with this bulldozer.

Okay, that last bit is not true. The bulldozer is here to do some grading around the Jacob house renovation, but it made for a good photo op.

Thank you to the teenagers, and to Molly Smyrl for organizing the workday, for all that you accomplished.

By the way, there is now a Crow’s Nest specific FaceBook page specifically designed to reach this teenage constituency. There will be some unique content as well as some overlap with the Natural Lands Trust FaceBook page. Bookmark both!
