This week in Storytelling we learned about the history of our camp. This slideshow features photographs from the late 30's, 40's and 50's of Pinecrest Dunes, the camp that existed on our grounds before Peconic Dunes. The camp was a very different place back then, so to immerse ourselves in the history of it, we pretended to be Pinecrest Dunes campers and wrote letters home! Special thanks to Peter Warns, Chris Colahan and all the alumni who have contributed to our growing store of pictures, maps, and stories of our camp history.

This week the bloggers got all fired up about fire building. We were stoked to learn about all the cool techniques and materials you can use to heat things up on a chilly night in the great outdoors. Thanks to all the interviewees out of whom  we smoked our answers and of course our listeners who keep our burning for learning alive!

This week the bloggers interviewed Maggie (Art Free Play Instructor) and Jeff (Videography Instructor) about some of the aspects of their Choice programs. These interviews gave us a lot of insight on what the creative process can teach us. Thanks to our gracious interviewees and of course our listeners!
