J: NBTSC Camp Myrtlewood wrap-up

What a great session we had for 2023 NBTSC. Camp Myrtlewood was its usual dreamy paradise self. The weather was great. The smoke stayed away for the most part. The creek was full and refreshing. The staff seemed like a dream team and the campers were delightful. So many workshops and panels and conversations and […]

Hi there! My name is Andrias, i’m here to recount how I experienced a day at camp. Day 11, Prom Night! I woke up relatively early, around 7 am, and I just stayed in bed for a couple hours before getting dressed and heading off to the lodge for breakfast. The day was relatively relaxing […]

Marley: Camp Myrtlewood (Day 8)

Lucy: Camp Myrtlewood (Day 7)

Some highlights of my day were…   My advisee group met in the creek today! First we talked about how our days went yesterday, then we played a game called creek seat (AKA hot seat) where we asked each other a bunch of random rapid-fire questions, and then just hung out and swam for a […]

Elihu: Field Trip Day, Camp Myrtlewood (Day 6)

I started my day a little rough. It was only the second night I’d slept in the tent I’d set one up the day before because it’s so hot in the field already.   Today was the field trip day. It’s always one of my favorite days at camp as it feels like the  longest […]
