Adventures Group 1

Group 1 campers traveled to Africa this week! Campers learned about the need for clean water in the villages of Burkina Faso through the story book The Water Princess.  This is a wonderful picture book based on the childhood experiences of model Georgie Badiel. Campers acted out the story and then created watercolor paintings with themselves carrying a pot on top of their head.  We learned how villagers made clay pots to carry water and we made our own pots out of model magic clay. Campers learned the story behind Maasai Beaded Jewelry from the Maasai tribe in Kenya. Group 1 became creative as they made their own necklaces being mindful of the symbolism represented by the colors.
