Campers get a feel of nature


Share post:

PARTICIPANTS who attended the Back To Nature camp interacted with nature in a real way when they spent part of their summer at Welchman Hall Gully in St Thomas.

Last week a NATION team joined 26 campers and their two counsellors Faith Brooks and Marva Eversley-Archer on the “Cow skull” hike.

With Eversley-Archer leading the pack and Brooks on the heels of the children, the team watched as they got dirty by navigating their way in and around large protruding tree branches, slippery mud patches and the popular-prickly Macaw palm, which they nicknamed the “Mookie-Pookie” tree.

Director of Back To Nature camp Debra Branker said half of the campers were newcomers and the excursion connected them with nature.

“They’re playing in it, they’re touching it, so therefore they have an appreciation of it.
