AOE counselor Zach was dearly missed today.  Zach was sick, so Jess subbed in for him in Eldorado Canyon.  We started the day with songs, a game and quick hike.  After lunch, campers got to challenge themselves with some top rope climbing! Every camper participated by facing their fears and doing their best.  Campers learned that climbing is very safe if done right, and were taught the proper commands to ensure good communication while climbing.  After climbing, campers spent free time journaling about what they see, hear, smell and feel in the canyon.  It was good to sit quietly and enjoy nature!  The last activity of the day was owl pellet dissection! Campers found lots of cool rodent and bird bones, and learned about what owls like to eat.  It was a great day in the canyon!
