We’ve heard from a number of Experiential Learning staff this year about their experiences on our team. This month, I thought we should turn it over to the most important members of the team: the kids. I interviewed campers during our EcoWonders camp at David Thompson, and here’s what they had to say:
What do you think about Camp Fresh Roots?
“It’s really fun.”- Multiple campers
“It’s very enjoyable.” – Age 9
“I never knew we would be cooking this much and I really like cooking.” – Age 7
What’s your favourite part?
“Cooking. We made curry and rice and brownies.” – Age 8
“The brownies.” – multiple campers
“The Curry. It had swiss chard, potatoes, and carrots.” – Age 10
“My favourite part is that we get to make food and harvest and learn all the types of plants” – Age 7
“We do lots of different games and fun things”. – age 6
“I like the games. My favourite is Fruit Salad. That’s all you need to know from me.” – age 6
What is Camp Fresh Roots about?
“It’s about plants and games and arts & crafts and fun.”- Age 7
“It’s about the environment and helping” – Age 8
“It’s all about nature and plants and learning about them. There’s lots of nature here.” – Age 7
Well, that about sums it up. Camps will be over for the year in just a couple weeks, but we’re already gearing up to welcome field trips in late September and October. After a much needed rest!
Oh, and that brownie recipe the kids all love? It’s easy, vegan, made with zucchini, and extremely delicious. You can find it here: https://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Healthy-Zucchini-Brownies-31120011
