We had a fun Friday at survival camp!
Meet the green peppers! They had so much fun on a wagon ride!
Today in the animal barn, red peppers milked a goat. Then they spent time with the kid goats in the barn and pasture.
The blue peppers fed the rabbits and let them out of their coup for the day.
The green peppers cleaned the barn and dumped the compost in the pile near the pasture. The yellow peppers played with the kid goats on the pool.
The green peppers spent time weeding in the garden.
The threw the weeds onto the compost pile. The decomposers in the pile appreciate new plant material.
Campers dissected sunflowers.
They collected the sunflower seeds.
And made paper envelopes to store their seeds.
They decorated their envelopes.
And had completed packets to take home!
Campers enjoyed a tractor ride around site this afternoon.
They sang camp songs to prepare for the closing activity!The blue and green peppers combined efforts to make a shelter.
Here is the yellow shelter.
The red peppers made many small shelters. Here is one of them. Here is the orange pepper shelter. The campers enjoyed working together to construct their shelters all week! What was their favorite part about this activity? What would they do differently if they could build a new structure?
In garden kitchen, campers made mango guacamole. They also made corn tortilla chips.
Here is the recipe:
2 medium avocados, mashed
½ cup onion, finely chopped
1 fresh mango, diced
¼ cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
1-2 tbsp fresh lime juice to taste (about 1 lime)
Fine grain sea salt
Combine and mix ingredients into a bowl.
To prepare tortilla chips to eat with the guacamole, cut up corn tortillas into triangles and arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Each pepper group worked together to make a survival camp banner.
For closing this afternoon, campers performed skits and sang songs.
