This week at High Meadows Camp                                              June 26, 2015
Place Highlight: The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth at High Meadows is located in the Sherwood Forest (also known as the Super Senior Woods), right past the Stalker's Walk. At the entrance, there are stepping stones that have the following words on them; creativity, caring, appreciation, curiosity, tolerance, respect, cooperation, integrity, confidence, empathy, and independence. Classes, mainly Traditions and Native Lore, visit the Labyrinth as an opportunity for meditation and reflection on those words, all of which are values that the High Meadows community embraces.

Labyrinths have been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Our labyrinth is inspired by the Celtic culture. Recently, a High Meadows School alumnus constructed new benches surrounding the labyrinth as part of his Eagle Scout Project. Campers enjoying the benches are pictured below.

Class Highlight: Woodworking

Both Super Seniors and Seniors groups had the chance to participate in a woodworking class here at camp, and you should see the results!

Super Senior campers learn the basics of woodworking and the use of tools through the completion of their choice of six different projects. Senior campers engage in more complex tasks, which include tree identification, more advanced tool usage and project design/completion using wood gathered from the forest.
