In our last post we forgot to mention that our C.I.T’s and Trailbreakers had another week of exciting service projects. On Monday they returned to Codman farm to help with a potato harvest. They worked in teams to fork the potatoes from the ground, then had to search the dirt around them for any straggling taters. It was hard, hot work, but in a little over an hour they had filled 4 buckets with beautiful purple potatoes.
Throughout the rest of the week our C.I.T’s helped us pack up camp and even organized our lost and found. Remember to stop by far left door of Hartwell A-Pod to look for any missing items from camp.
This off-campus service component was new to camp this summer and we are so glad we did it. We volunteered at the St. Vincent/St. Joseph’s Food Pantry, helped the Rural Land Foundation and Lincoln Conservation with their Pollinator Meadow, and made 3 trips to Codman Farm to help with weeding and harvesting. Throughout their service we know our oldest campers gained an appreciation for how these local organizations support our town, and we are glad to be supporting them in their efforts.
If your camper or C.I.T was part of this service and needs it documented for credit please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send out an official letter.
