Ecole Kenwood – November 11th – 13th, 2009

Ecole Kenwood

Ecole Kenwood came to us hailing from Columbus, Ohio. The Camp Willson Staff was waiting with bated breath, as the busses rolled in. The staff brushed up on their French all year for this moment!  The students moved into their new homes, and were very excited. They then joined us, for lunch. After lunch the 5th graders where out to conquer Camp Willson. The teacher’s choose a wide range of topics that they have either covered in school or that is to be covered in the future. The classes included; Horse Sense, Astronomy, Climbing Wall, Team Challenge, Campfire Cooking, Reptiles and Amphibians, Orienteering, Down on the Farm and Egg Drop. Some of the classes were brand new to the students, thus they had many questions about them. The first night Kenwood students danced their hearts out Camp Willson style at our square dance. The students went to bed, tired and sweaty from the dance. Day 2 started with a classic flag raising ceremony. During breakfast the students were graded on how clean their cabins were, by two Snipe hunters. Then there was another full day of classes, the recreation time for the day was full of different activities. Some students went on a hike, some went to the sports field, and others went to the climbing wall to practice their skills, a select few went mountain boarding with Paul Bunyan. After dinner the dining hall was turned into a runway for our chaperones and teachers to be dressed up in newspapers by the kids. They strutted their new fashion down our cat walk. After the fashion show the dinning hall transformed again into a game show studio. The students played “Are You Smarter Then a Camp Willson Naturalist…” they did a great job through out the game.  The Camp Willson staff had a great time with Ecole Kenwood, we would like to personally thank them for joining us at Camp Willson.
