Henry: Day 6 (Latgawa 2018)

August 6, 2018 (Day 6, Oregon Session 1 at Camp Latgawa) written by camper Henry Today we threw one of the staff in the pool. Originally planned to be a prank, we chased him everywhere until he jumped in the pool himself. And then he got out of the pool and then he let us […]

Lena: Day 5 (Latgawa 2018)

August 5, 2018 (Day 5, Oregon Session 1 at Camp Latgawa) by camper Lena Mackay Ten minutes. It’s been ten minutes since I went all in, $750 with absolutely nothing in my hand. The player to my left folded immediately. The player to his left folded even faster. Now it’s just me and the dealer, […]

August 4, 2018 (Day 4, Oregon Session 1 at Camp Latgawa) written by camper Max   I didn’t do much in the form of workshops, but I was able to attend Raven’s twerkshop which really helped with my confidence. The smoke was pretty bad that day so I decided it would be better for me […]

[Ed. note: more pics coming soon!] July 30, 2018 (Staff Orientation Day 2) written by staffer Matt Sanderson (advisor and mama bear) Ahh, NBTSC staff orientation.

Vermont 2017 Day 7, by culminating camper Maddy

I woke up to a knock on my cabin door and soft ukulele music. I headed over to the lodge for breakfast. Over breakfast, I sat with newfound friends and talked about what we were excited for in the upcoming days. Later in the day I led a music appreciation workshop with my friend Tallis. […]
