Questions to Ask Your Owl Camper – Tuesday

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


  1. We played a game this week called Sock Wars. How is this game played? What does it mean to “play with honor”?
  2. Campers had the chance to climb trees this week. Did you climb a tree? What did you do to stay safe while climbing? (Hint: three points of contact, bandana height limit, counselor spotter)
  3. We spent some time exploring and playing around the Blackfeather base camp. Did you overturn logs to look for creatures? Did you help build a fort? What do you like about Blackfeather basecamp?

BUFFALO CAMP (Pat’s Group)

  1. At river time today, we brought critter nets with us. Did you try to catch anything? What other animals did you see near the river? (Hint: northern water snakes)
  2. We’ve played a ton of fun games at camp this week. We played OkayNoWay and Cat Hole Relay to learn about some things at camp. What were those games teaching us? (Hint: the camp rules and how to go to the bathroom in the woods) What other fun games have you played at camp this week?
  3. Our group of Counselors-In-Training (CITs) helped us build a fort at Buffalo base camp. What did the fort look like? What other fun things have you done with the CITs this week?
