2019 Overnight Camp: Session 4 – Part 1

It’s a hot one out there! But these campers are incredible—they kept right on going with field games, sports, swimming, paddling, and sailing. A few early risers took advantage of the cool air this morning with yoga on the beach while others took refuge in the shade with activities in the Arts & Crafts building.

One group paddled across the pond to see swallows swooping and swarming over the water catching insects, which was magical. Another built incredible “mini golf” courses with rocks, sticks, and tree roots in the Amphitheater. We also welcomed a film crew to shoot footage for a camp video for us, to debut this winter!

Here are a few highlights—see the full album on SmugMug!
