Chewonki Camp for Girls is a wilderness camp, not only by our location on 4th Debsconeag, more so from our program curriculum. All campers come and then go-go out on trips. In order to have them prepared for trips we teach firebuilding, we teach how to set up the tents, we teach how to use and ax, how to use a saw. In order to celebrate this collective knowledge we recently held an official Campcraft Olympics. The events included setting up tents while blindfolded, team wood chopping, Bird Identification and fire building. Teams were made up of mixed yurt groups. Fun was had by all. Fun was had also by folks affiliated with Chewonki who came up to support what we do. Visiting us and working this week at 4th Debsconeag were full time staff from Development, Communications, Maintenance as well as summer employees from the Wiscasset programs. These folks joined us for the fun and excitement of camp. Today for Woodsorrel, our new 10 day group, was a full day of camp activities including swimming, canoeing, birding, a campfire with skits (costumes well used). Trillium packed lunches and enjoyed a floating lunch on 4th Debsconeag Lake. Clintonia Yurt departed for Lobster Lake today. They were packed and out just after breakfast. Corydalis is sleeping soundly at Ragmuff Campsite. Tomorrow they visit the famous Chesuncook village. The Nahmakanta Explorers are now hiking on the Appalachian Trail. They walked out of camp and are now following Rainbow spring.
