Questions to Ask Your Growth Rings Camper – Tuesday

If you’re wondering what your camper has been up to this week, here are some questions to get the conversation started…

TURTLE CAMP (Whittling and Fire, Kaylyn’s Group)

  1. Today you played Sock Wars, a Schoolhouse favorite. What was your team’s strategy? Did you use all of your magic spells? 
  2. On Monday, your group went on a wood scouting hike to find good pieces of wood for whittling. Did you find a good stick? What qualities make a stick good for whittling?
  3. This week your group played a game where some of the players were able to howl. What was it? What animal were you? Did you get turned into a werewolf?

GNARLY STUMP CAMP (Plants and Snakes, Jenna’s Group)

  1. A local herpetologist came to show your group some interesting reptiles. Which animal was your favorite? Why?
  2. Today you played a game at base camp that involved being quiet and stealthy in the forest. What game did you play? What strategies did you use during the game?
  3. On Monday, your group had the opportunity to start working on snake field guides. Did you start a guide? What are the requirements for the guide?
