One of the highlights of Ocean Camp was the hermit crab races. Here two crabs warm up before the race.


The second day of camp, UGWA sent over a trio of VISTA volunteers to teach the kids about the water systems


The kids and volunteers created their own ocean themed shirts that they wore for Friday’s performance.


Volunteers enjoyed a rope swing over the creek behind the school. Don’t be alarmed, everyone wore a safety harness


The official week 6 group shot

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

Henry David Thoreau

Before reflection we had the leader of Upper Guyandotte Watershed Association talk to us about the problems with the creeks, streams and rivers and ways they are going about trying to change them. That was followed by job sites and then a reflection on a different way of looking at the Eucharistic.

This non-repair day was full of lots of wonderful activities. The camp came to a successful end with their presentation of several songs and skits. It was recorded, so hopefully we will be able to link a version to the blog.

After camp four of the kids stayed for another tutoring session. Today they were treated to a special game, a pinata with candy AND math problems.

Volunteers also kept busy during the day making runs to the dump, organizing St. Vincent DePaul and creating a making a few bed frames for the house in Pineville.

At the end of the day, several volunteers converged on Mullens Manor for a rousing game of banana bingo.

Tonights dinner is a scrumptious chili cornbread caserole. Yummy!!!
