February Wrap-Up

Is March really almost halfway through? Time certainly flies during Outdoor Ed season! Speaking of which, here’s a Camp Stevens February in a nutshell:

  • On the very first day of the month, ten “Hero Helpers” came up for a volunteer work weekend. This group of veteran summer camp counselors built a formidable woodpile outside the Lax Sadler lodge and participated in some Zombie Apocalypse-themed teambuilding.
  • Sarah and Jacob, new to the staff this season,  each hosted retreat groups solo for the first time. Fly free, baby birds!
  • We enjoyed a big weekend with the American Druze Society, featuring some delicious, Lebanese style tabbouleh from the kitchen. Hosting members of the Druze community was another exciting first for Camp Stevens.
  • Tables at the San Diego Diocesan Convention were adorned with approximately 70 centerpieces, fashioned here at Camp from mason jars, acorns, turkey feathers and re-purposed trimmed manzanita branches by staff member and convention attendee Coreen.
  • We hit the ground running with our first Outdoor Ed of the year with St. Mary’s school out of Escondido. The staff could barely contain themselves during that first community gathering!
  • Finally, as I mentioned in the January wrap up, February began with seven or so minutes of not-quite-hail, but not-quite sleet. It ended, however, in a veritable rainstorm that knocked the power out for almost two hours!

…we certainly needed the rain, though, and the greenery right now is spectacular 🙂
