“Where the Wild Things Are”

Sunday, July 8 – Saturday, July 14, 2018

Dean: Mira Mickiewicz

Welcome to the world of the wild things! This week at Camp de Benneville Pines, we’ll dive into the forest, get to know its creatures, and maybe even take on a bit of the wildness ourselves. We’ll learn some forest survival skills—like which wild plants we can eat, how to become stealthy and camouflaged, and how to use a bow and arrow. Of course, we’ll take part in all of the camp favorites — pool time, art, games, and music—but this week they may well turn into distant ocean explorations, costume-making, magic tricks, and a wild rumpus!

We’ll explore our own wildness and passions, building a community where we can each be our own unique, wild self. We’ll also explore the “peace of wild things,” taking time to reflect and enjoy the stars, the trees, and the family we build in our home away from home. Just like our Unitarian Universalist faith, “Where the Wild Things Are” at Camp de Benneville Pines means celebrating our individuality and our community, and the whole web of life of which we are a part.

All of the young wild things are well cared-for by trained counselors who are guided by Unitarian Universalist principles and work to build a loving and inclusive camp community. The new and rich experiences that kids get at elementary summer camp can be life changing. Don’t miss this opportunity for an imaginative adventure in the forest. And don’t worry — we’ll never go to bed without a delicious dinner!

This event is for campers completing grades 2nd – 5th.
