The week is off to a great start! We had a full first day on Monday… full of getting to know the place, swimming, climbing, campfire, songs, and enjoying meals together. Yesterday was another beautiful, and hot, day here in Wiscasset. Yesterday’s activities included learning about marine invertibrates and micro-invertibrates, sailing, canoeing, nature art projects, and climbing in our barn. The girls are trying new skills, tasting new foods, making new friends, and learning new songs.
We have posted images on our website of the first day, we will continue to post images as we get them from the week. To see the images, please visit our website: www.chewonki.org and click on the flickr icon.
Last night’s activity was an Outreach Presentation on Owls. I heard a lot of great stories from the girls about the owls they saw and the lessons they learned.
The weather forecast is looking great for tonight’s overnight on the point of Chewonki Neck. The girls are in their rest hour right now and getting ready for their overnight. They have collectively shared their excitement for this adventure, and I know they will all be pleased to know that they get s’mores!
Please note, the pick up for the Saltwater Session is on Friday, August 21st at 12noon. We will be in the quad, the center of the campus. Please park in front of the Center for Environmental Education (big red building) and follow the boardwalk. We look forward to seeing you then.
