Camp 2012

July 13, 2012

Every Friday here in the garden is Herb Day, where we celebrate all of the gorgeous flavors we are able to grow right here in our own garden. We had three different activities today where we explored different uses for herbs. At one station, we made soothing bath scrubs with lavender, which is very therapeutic and relaxing. We also mixed different combinations of herbs with butter to make a variety of herb butters on baguette. Try them today at our parent party! Lastly, we were able to plant our own mini herb gardens to take home so that we can continue to cook with and appreciate our herbs!

In the afternoon, we had a special treat for physical activity time- water guns! We played freeze tag to help beat the heat, and ganged up on the counselors too! Fun was had by all.
