Another Good Day – August 2, 2019
Thursday was day 5 of our second girl’s session! The day started with morning circle; teams followed after breakfast and chores, as they started the touch and trust section of team building where they learn the building blocks of how to physically support someone; later in the session the girls will have to work together to lift, pass (in a controlled manner), and spot each other as they overcome some obstacle (known in the team building world as an initiative).
After fun afternoon camptivities, our day wrapped up with an evening activity called Brown-Eyes Blue-Eyes. Our campers watched a documentary about a teacher who did a classroom-wide social experiment where she treated the students differently solely based on their eye color. The campers were led through facilitation questions to dig deeper. (Each night we alternate between a “module-based”, camp activity, and campfire; this rotation helps to challenge our campers while also having camp based fun.) Another good day at camp!
