Lots has been happening on the Mountain in the past month. We have worked with all ranges of groups. One of our highlights was working with a local Girl Scout Troop. This was slated to be a busy and interactive program including a campout and night hike. The goal of the troop was to become more comfortable with camping while focusing on trust and love in a fun setting. The girls were able to stretch their skill set learning how to navigate themselves to find team building challenges on our woodsy campus. After completing the challenges, the girls faced a different kind of challenge that consisted of cooking their dinner out of doors. Our WinShape Wilderness guides Sarah and Rebecca were able to help them pull of a great meal of pasta with a variety of toppings and sauces. They were definitely “Leave no Trace” compliant too – they packed out all their trash out, hung bear bags and dug the ever-popular sump hole for all liquid waste. After dinner the girls embarked on a night hike in the dark. They set out with out flashlights and found their way to the destination by following glow sticks and completing group challenges along the way. After the hike all that was left was to fall asleep under starry sky that blankets our 26,000 acre home base. As a result the girls were able to gain a closeness with each other that only comes from being stretched in a environment that challenging yet safe and fun. Great memories were made! Check out our Facebook page for a complete album of pictures from this program. (If you haven’t already- be sure to “like” it!) They contain all the excitement of experiential learning and the great outdoors!
