This week was about plants and camps explored the world of plants in unique ways. Cattails, Goldenrod, Raspberry Leaves, Currants and Hickory Trees were just some of the plants campers got experience with during the week.
While there are many fine shelters in the forest now, I would have to hand the grand prize for shelter construction to Adventure Academy. They built an incredible Wiki-up similar to a teepee with leaves, pine needles and branches used for the construction. Later in the week, the camp sewed leather pouches and gathered precious items from the forest to fill these pouches around their necks.
