staff overnights

A highlight of staff training—village groups hike out for "trial" overnights. This year the weather cooperated brilliantly. Skies cleared and the temperatures dropped. Perfect night for sleeping out. I and others visited almost all the sites. When we got to Forest and Susky camped out at Moonshadow (along the trail just along the west side of High Falls Brook), they were about to teach the new staff some cheers. The video below gives you a sense of how already LOUD they are. At Banks Hill, Maya, a new counselor in Lakota (and creative writing instructor during specialty periods), showed us her special marshmellow with chocolate "baked" inside.
