The Pick-Up

"Ahhh. We need another week mom!" That is what I heard the minute I walked through the doors to pick these Junior Adventurers up from camp. After that it was "Mom, look at this!" "Mom, see how high I can climb!" They campers put on a little expo of skills. Our boys showed off their climbing skills and Remington was able to show me a quick round of archery too.

Remington waited patiently for Ben to finish with others as he wanted to climb one of the most challenging walls. The added bonus was the glory sheet at the top where all climbers that have finished the climb can sign.

This is one of the hardest moves where Remington had to swing and jump up to catch the next hold.

Once it was discovered that a climber could leave their mark by signing their name Erik decided to skip archery and he waited, or should I say rested, in line!

This camp is part of an environmental learning mission. Every day the waste from meal times is weighed an posted. Campers are encouraged to eat everything and to only take as much as they know they can eat. Their goal was less than 5 pounds but they had three times the amount of waste.
