It sure is! The Edgecomb Eddy 6th graders arrived early this morning wearing giant smiles. They were bursting with questions! “When can we go to the camp site?” “Can we chop wood today?” “Is the gulch crossing tomorrow or the next day?” After they met up with their Chewonki instructors all of their questions were answered and they started right in with outdoor living skills. Instructors noted that the potential rain we may get will just add to the adventure, and the students seemed to agree. Our second group to arrive was the Merriconeag Waldorf 5th graders from Freeport, ME. They seemed quite thrilled to be on another camping trip with their class. The rumor is that even though we are approaching October, students brought swim suits and were planning on jumping in the water! We’ll wait and see. Cape Cod Academy students were all over the Chewonki peninsula today. Groups were climbing in the barn, crossing the gulch, learning about renewable energy and exploring in the woods with their new map and compass skills. Tonight the whole class will get a chance to socialize and compare experiences at a BBQ. Everyone will also enjoy a night presentation with live owls from our Traveling Natural History Program.
