This week's report was written by R.E. with photos from A.G.
Today we started out with a circle for the beginning of the session. The day was partly cloudy. We went around saying our names and what were excited to do in class. We had a number of new students and we all enjoyed getting to know each other. Nick talked about the importance of facing our inner dragons (fears) this session. Afterward we played a game of Infection which is similar to a game of tag.
After the game, S, our navigator, led us into the forest. Before we got there, Sa. was stung by a yellow jacket wasp. We gathered some plantain for the sting and Nick went over bee safety with us. Sa. chewed the plantain and then applied the paste to the sting. She reported that this helped ease the pain.
S. led us into the forest to the creek. Once we arrived we noticed it was more eroded then last session. We spent some time there playing.
Once we got to main camp we ate lunch. After lunch we discussed the topic of knife safety and then we built a fire.
