Howdy! It’s Mama Iguana here to update you all on our fantastic cabin night from last night and give you a special, special, special update from one of our Community campers! Community is a teen program that lives up at Blodgett house, about a mile down camp road, and does different service work within their group, as well as in the greater Maine community. Here’s the update:
One week into Community, the Blodgett house has been abuzz with excitement. After some vigorous cleaning, our space is now a home. While it took time to adjust to the lack of electricity and running water, we’ve managed to fully adapt to this sustainable lifestyle. We’ve been cooking everything from mac & cheese to French galettes, all becoming more experienced cooks in the process. While secluded from the rest of camp, we have been able to further our understanding of sustainability and appreciate the beauty of nature. We have also reached out to our local community through an assisted living center, a local farm, and a state park. After many blissful swims, some Kyle-induced sun salutations, and lots of cups of decaffeinated tea around the fire, we have successfully developed a community of strong relationships.
Thanks for the update, Community! Make sure to check out photos below of all the fun Community has been having, as well as some photos from our other teen program Alive! Alive is an art-based teen program located on camp that has advanced art classes throughout the day, goes on trips, and spends a lot of time preparing for an amazing show at the end of the summer.
