Below - Campers in the teen adventure camp play a challenge game...the object is
to move a water bucket all together to retrieve shoes which have been tossed out of reach. Teamwork is essential!
We have a campfire on most nights, led by our drama team, Marianne McFarlin and Donna Vincent. This is wacky
fun and a chance for campers to be up in front of an audience.
We have a shamrock shaped swimming pool, which is a big hit with the
campers. Three of our staff are lifeguards and two teach swimming. Here Jeanie teaches the children how to dive
(this is an old-fashioned swimming pool, built with a deep end for diving).
Our younger kids' camp also puts on an original drama production every year. This year Marianne and Donna
wrote a production about the life of the Mono Indians who originally lived in this area. The drama team ladies and the
campers are amazing - they rise to the challenge of being in a production for the parents in only three days!
Our camp for children in grades 3 - 6 emphasizes the arts. Here the campers are painting with watercolor over
a design that they made by stamping black acrylic paint with the edges of posterboard bent into various curves and angles
We also have a professional clay artist, Rita Watkins, who works with the campers every year. This year the
campers made owl-shaped bells. Here they are applying the glaze. Rita fires the projects in her home studio.
