Contra Dancing, Monadnock, and Falcon Paddles
by Camp Glen Brook
July 22, 2016
The whole camp made it up to the top of Mount Monadnock on Wednesday! We followed with a cookout in the meadow and an evening swim after a long sweaty day. While the camp hiked, some staff who stayed back at Camp were able to see the group waving from the summit through one of Camp’s telescopes. They also helped the hikers find camp by using a mirror to reflect the sun toward the mountain to signal Camp’s location.
Thursday night saw a lively contra dance in the meadow– our band played wonderfully, and everybody had a great time. Next week Nurse Katy will be teaching us some more complex square dances, since everybody did so well last night.
Our weather continues to be hot and sunny, and the campers are all off on team scavenger hunts throughout the woods to start off the day’s Glen Brook Games. They are using maps and compasses to find clues as well as a long list of various items (such as “a maple leaf”, “a striped rock”). When they finish the scavenger hunt and have a snack, we’ll begin our team games!
