I Do, We Do, You Do!

Posted by on June 23, 2012

Today was the last day of Pre-camp and tomorrow most of our campers will arrive.  The counselors had an amazing time learning about each other, setting up the activity areas, and making the cabin cozy for the campers.  Our counselors have traveled from all over the United States and Mexico to be part of the camp experience!
“I do, we do, you do” is one of the many sayings we learned this week to help children learn more effectively. First the counselor shows the child the skill, then the counselor and camper try the skill together, and in the the camper tries the skill on her own. It’s a simple but very effective technique to help remind counselors the power of teaching.
I have to admit we have been spoiled this week.  Dan Montgomery, our long lost friend, is back as the head Chef!  Dan started cooking at Camp Woodland over 20 years ago.  We have watched his children grow-up at camp while Dan cooked the most amazing meals! Lucky for us after being gone for almost 10 years, Dan is back cooking homemade spaghetti sauce and garlic bread; chicken fajitas; and out of this world lasagna!!

Farewell for tonight and we can’t wait to see your children tomorrow !!!
