|CHILDREN'S SUMMER PROGRAM
Hands-On Gardening. Campers are given the opportunity to plant,
cultivate and sample vegetables grown in a raised bed garden.
Last summer we planted a "Three Sisters Garden" demonstrating
Native American agricultural practices in growing their staples
of corn, beans and squash.
Experiencing Nature. Counselors lead children on a daily nature
walk on one of the trails that wind through our woods and in an
exploration of the Brandywine Creek. Campers are encouraged to
observe insects, animals, and plant life.
Swimming. In addition to a period of free swim, lifeguards give
lessons each day to help campers overcome fear, build
self-confidence and learn how to swim.
Organized Play. No camp would be complete without the
opportunity for fun and games. Camp Linden provides a variety of
non-competitive athletics, games and free play.
Lenape Native American Program. For the second year we were able to provide an exciting program by Ms. Shelley DePaul, Assistant Chief
and educator for the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania. Ms. DePaul
was in residence at camp for one week to provide a two hour
program for each group of children. The program included stories
of Lenape lore and history, drumming, dancing, native crafts and
games. For more information see Lenape Native American Program.
