Week Two and the Exciting Adventures

Well me mateys! We've cast out to sea, and now we're sailing across the wide ocean... well dessert. Today the girls got to make decisions about their camp adventure by choosing which pirate activity they wanted in My Choice as well as creating their own grub at cook out dinner. Many of camp also slept like pirates might have- under the stars with their best mateys. Here are some pictures from those events.

What pirate doesn't like to get made up every once and a while? Here our pirate ladies arrrre applying nail polish to make their nails beautiful.

Pirates also need to know how to light fires safely. How else are they to light their cannons. Here our pirate ladies are creating their very own edible camp fires- complete with flavored "water hoses" to extinguish the deadly flames!

Camp Willow Spring pirates are definitely the craftiest ones on the seven seas! During my choice some of our ladies decided to create their own clay vessels in ceramics. Unfortunately th…

Monday with me Mateys!

Ahoy me mateys! Welcome to our first fun filled adventurous day at Camp Willow Springs! We've set sail for a week of adventure and already we've played and learned so much! Here is some of what happened Monday at camp. 
 Navajo began their fishing adventure by making their own bamboo poles. The white whale might not be on their horizon with these poles, but we send our best wishes with them on their fishing trips this week.

Meanwhile, the ladies in Hualapai are hitting the ropes course already, preparing for their time up in those trees. It will help for later when we are climbing up the crow's nest!

All the girls at camp have the opportunity to experience tie-dye as well.  Nothing feels better than knowing you created the art on your shirt yourself. Or covering up the existing logos on the shirts with bright splashes of blue and green.
Our potters found their own personal heaven in Zuni creating masterpieces on the wheel and crafting creations with their hands. 
     We l…

Casting off to Sea with Pirates and Parrots Week!

Arggh Mateys! We've scrubbed the poop deck at Camp Willow Springs, raised the sails, raised the anchor and we're ready to set sail. All aboard one and all for an exciting week of fun, games, adventure and a little bit of camp madness!

Nothing better to start the week off on a good peg like a swashbuckling get to know you game! Navajo was filled with running and excitement as all the girls met their new friends for the first time.
Meanwhile, the pirates of Cocopah sailed around camp, touring all the facilities. No need for morse code on these ships! Cocopah already found the mailbox to send letters home. 

Then we joined the buccaneers of Cocopah for a game of elbow tag. No pirate was left behind as we all had a wonderful game. 

We then got the unit in ship shape with a beautiful buddy line. 

Yo ho, yo ho! No pirate adventure is complete without songs! We sang our hearts out under the singing tree together. 

Us buckos then got together to sing some more chanteys by fire light.
