The Denver Juniors are off to a great start!

On Monday, we visited the Morrison Nature Center aolongside the Explorers, and we kicked of our week singing “Little Red Wagon” and “The Moose.”  Everyone had the opportunity to practice their deepest voice during “The Moose,” and we had a lot of fun with it.  Counselor Jamie taught everyone how to play “Ship Island,” and we had a wonderful time following the captain’s orders.  In the afternoon, every camper designed his or her own water bottle or bookmark and, I have to say, Session C has some terrific artists.

Today, Tuesday, we had a fun time tromping around the National Wildlife Refuge.  We started off with “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” and “Boom-Chicka-Boom.”  The Juniors loved Counselor Andrew’s silly voices during “Boom-Chicka-Boom!”  We all were able to go on nice long hikes, and the eldest group even had the opportunity to play in a teepee that some of the Explorers helped to construct.  To finish off the day, each cabin group worked together to create a Code – the list of agreements campers and counselors will live by within their group.  Campers were into it, and they came with fantastic ideas.

It has been an action-packed two days, and I can’t wait for rock climbing and swimming tomorrow.
