Sherwood Forest!

Hello Everyone!

Today is Robin Hood Day at Camp Jorn! 

It was overcast today, but not cold. Classes are going great, and everyone is having a great time! 

Arapahoe, Cherokee and Menominee are all going on their overnight trips today. They will leave after lunch and will return tomorrow before lunch. 

Tonight for the Evening Activity, we are playing Gold Rush, with a twist to honor Robin Hood! The Cabins will walk around trying to find gold rocks and might have to complete a task to receive the gold. While, the Sheriff will be walking around collecting Taxes (the gold)! 

Hope everyone is having a great day!
