Hello Out There Lovely Shiloh families!
Second session is in full swing and campers and counselors alike are continuing to try new things and to spread their wings! All of the unit trips came in on Friday with hilarious, lovely, and sometimes nonsensical stories to tell. All units except for our oldest cabins that is. The 14 year olds and their counselors are still out there hiking somewhere… Chelsea dropped off their food recently, and all were happy and healthy. They should be hiking in from the south some time on Thursday. Meanwhile, we are doing workshops here this weekend and currently celebrating Shiloh’s own version of the Olympics. Ask your camper all about it on pick-up day. You can also ask them about the new skills they acquired during workshops. This session we have making/modifying clothing, tree fort/net/hammock construction, social change through art, and contra/folk dancing. I can’t wait for presentations tomorrow night!
Our other big story here at camp is…we got pigs! The staff built a nice pen right next to the chicken coop, and Walnut and Dancer moved in last Thursday. The Shiloh Agricultural zone continues to grow. Who knows where we are headed next?
In other news, we played a raucous, game of JUGS last night, had a wonderful visit from a few representatives of Charlottesville Friends Meeting, and project week trips (where campers get to list their preferences and all the ages are mixed up) are announced tomorrow. Whew! That is a lot. Looking forward to seeing families reunited on Saturday, though it will certainly be hard to see campers go already. Much Love from Stanardsville!
