First Session Outpost

We kicked off summer of 2014 with our first Outpost. All the campers went out in cabin groups to selected sites along our creek. They set up camp, started a LITTLE fire to cook hot dogs, veggie dogs and roast marshmallows. The first challenge was to find their hidden watermelons. One counselor hid their watermelon so well, no one could find it, including the counselor! The evening was spent sitting by the fire, telling stories, singing, visiting other groups and watching shooting stars.

The next morning, after a campout breakfast, the  campers arrived back in camp for showers, letter writing and relaxing.

The general theme of the night was, “It was FUN!”

Outpost and Campfire training

We always have a great time combining Outpost Training with Campfire Training. The counselors have to go out in groups to recon the outpost sites. Then we gather at Coyote Corner for S’Mores, songs and skits. Every year the skits are hilarious and watching the new staff light up with the joy of singing and laughing under the stars, is always such a fun experience.
