Today was our last day at camp so we took advantage of every sunny minute!
In the morning, our interfaith groups continued their activities utilizing our natural camp environment. The mountain and light groups went for a hike to some ledges facing out over the mountains and valleys leading into camp. The water group used bark and wood to create their own individual boats and sailed them down the camp stream, while the trees, plants & seeds group decorated rocks to identify the herbs and flowers in the garden they had planted the day before.
In the afternoon we packed (and did our laundry!), rewarded ourselves with a swim, and then the kids had more fun activities that took them all over the camp.
We celebrated our time together with a campfire on the shores of the lake. Under the stars the kids shared stories of times they had appreciated each other, and each child received a small medal as a reminder of their capacity for positive change: “one enkindled spirit can set hundreds on fire”.
