George Washington Campground, Chepachet, RI
September 21 – 23, 2012: Our kick-off camping trip for the year. Ten mentors, 5 new and 5 returning, joined the community fellows, Aaron Reyes and Tanya Saxena, on our training trip to Chepachet, RI. We covered topics including Leave No Trace policies, facilitation, curriculum planning, and leadership styles. We had great meals (chili, cornbread, burritos, and GORP). We also played some great games like Zoo and Yee-Haw.
We are all super excited to meet our high school students soon and show them the great potential for OLEEP this year.
