It was a rainy day at camp but I hope you had a great last day!
This morning we played with the baby goats and learned about their herding instincts. We had a great time running up and down the driveway with the the little goats behind us!
In garden kitchen we made yummy mini apple pancakes. The Peppers loved trying some of the Tollgate maple syrup with their pancakes.
Orange Peppers were so helpful during morning chores! They helped Ms. Sarah clean out the barn and put new wood shavings down. Thank you, Orange Peppers!
During the storm we got stuck inside but we didn’t let it stop us from having fun! We had a hula hoop contest while we waited for the storm to end.
In the afternoon we made tinfoil boats and learned about how things float. We learned that because of surface tension, things that are more spread out hold the weight more evenly and won’t sink as easily.
We also learned about bees and how they make honey. Ms. Sarah read us a book about the queen bee and what she does, then we tried honey sticks.
We made zucchini pizza and had watermelon and cantaloupe with it. The Peppers never thought of making pizza with zucchini!
We finished our week with our skits that we worked so hard on with Ms. Lauren.
I hope you had a great week at camp because I sure did! I can’t wait to see you again!

Mini Apple Pancakes
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons Original Bisquick® mix
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped Granny Smith apples
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Butter for skillet or griddle, as desired
4 or 5 (10-inch) bamboo skewers, cut in half
Whipped cream and syrup for garnish
In large bowl, mix Bisquick mix, milk, egg, apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla until just combined.
Heat 10-inch cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly coat inside of skillet with butter.
Drop tablespoonfuls of batter into skillet; cook until edges are dry and bubbles begin to form on the surface. Turn and cook until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter as needed to keep skillet lightly greased.
Any toppings you like on pizza
Start by chopping off the end of the zucchini squash with the stem. Now slice it long ways in half and take a spoon and scoop out a bit of the inside so you can lay the other ingredients just inside of it and they’ll stay in place. Then you can put your ingredients inside. Place this in the oven for about 10 minutes on 425.
