Winona campers choose their own activities several
times a day. The choices are too numerous to list, but they include
all of those things which make boys' eyes sparkle...riding horses,
shooting guns, swimming, playing team sports, doing crafts, mountain
climbing, hiking, boating and on it goes.
Kept at the unpressured level of "story-telling," and inviting a healthy mix of fact with fiction, these narratives help campers embrace a much more personal summer. "Talk of mystery! Think of our life in nature -- daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it -- rocks, trees, wind on our cheeks! the solid earth! the actual world! the common sense! Contact! Contact!
