Green Science Adventure Camp: Day Three

Hi everyone! Coltrane here again. Well, I was right. Today was just as fun (if not more fun) than yesterday! It was drizzling out today, but to be honest, I kind of enjoyed dancing in the rain– as much as a turtle can dance.

The day started of with animal chores, which is quickly becoming a camper favorite.

Goat breakfast!

Our campers also got some time to brainstorm and rehearse their skits! I even saw a few campers audition to play the role of Mr. Julian!

For craft time, the campers got to make binoculars! My sources tell me that they may be using them later in the week.

They work!

The campers also took a little break from decorating to frolic in the rain!

Don’t wait for the storm to pass. Dance in the rain!

It dried up a bit for lunch, and then everyone was back at it with some fun arts and crafts about seeds! First, there was a seed bomb, which was made of clay, soil, and, of course, seeds!

The next one required quite a bit of creativity: the campers had to make a device that would either float their seeds, allow them to fly in the breeze, or help them attach to an animal’s fur. They came up with some pretty interesting ideas.

Then, our campers braved a hike in the rain. But this wasn’t just any hike; it was an animal hike! Two goats accompanied each group, and each camper got a chance to walk with them.

Just like walking your dog!

Last but not least, Garden Kitchen! Today’s menu included asparagus ribbon salad and fancy green beans. There was a little conflict on the recipe card today, and it said swirly scape pesto. We were just eager for tomorrow’s delicious pesto recipe. The bean recipe will be on tomorrow’s card so that you can make it for your camper!

BONUS! Here’s a new segment I’m introducing called Coltrane’s Captured Moments. It’s just a few of my favorite snapshots throughout the day.
