Today was our last day of camp and we finally had some really nice warm weather to enjoy our day outside!
We all went out on a hayride to the field and played some games as a group.
We learned more about the goats today and took them on walks while we talked about them.
We made hummus and pita chips in Garden Kitchen.
We learned about the maple forest this afternoon. We saw the sugar shack and the lines around the trees for when they tap the maple trees. Maple sap can only be collected for a short period of time because the temperature at night needs to be below freezing and the daytime temperature needs to be above freezing.
In afternoon Garden Kitchen we made maple oatmeal raisin cookies and sampled different types of milk. We tried whole, soy, and rice milk.
Today the 3-Day Walk walked by the farm and our campers went to cheer them on!
It was finally time for our skits. We sang songs and performed our skits for everyone. Each group came up with their own skit in music and practiced it all week.
We had a great week at camp and can’t wait to see you next summer!
