Although the thunderstorm kept our campers out of the garden on the last day of camp, that didn’t stop them from enjoying the herb activities that were planned for them. The main station included a beverage making workshop, where the campers learned how to make Lime Mint Spritzers using fresh mint leaves from the garden. Though the recipe only called for four ingredients, each camper was assigned a task so that everyone could be a part of the final product. For example, while some were finely chopping fresh mint leaves or measuring lime juice, others were slicing lemons as a garnish for everyone’s drinking cups. At the next station, campers planted herbs (basil, lemon balm and anise) that they will be taking home with them at the end of the day. Last, campers played a fly-swatting game with the Master Gardener. The object of the game was to swat at a the correct insect image upon the presentation of a certain fruit. The campers had to decide which insect would target the given fruit and subsequently run up to the wall of images and swat away at the bug. Look out paper bugs, these campers sure know how to use fly-swatters!
