So far I have shot video from a motor boat, a canoe, atop a rock wall, in a horse ring, at a gun range, at an archery range, and while running through the woods. I’ve been in a climbing harness, stepped on by a horse, covered in sand and grit, I’ve sat in water, baked under the sun, and sprinted until the sweat made my eyes sting. I’m covered in bug bites, I have shin splints, I’ve bruised and cut myself multiple times. I’ve shot almost 10 hours of video so far. It has been quite an experience. In about a week the girls will leave and boy’s camp will start.
Here’s a package I edited together of the girls talking about what their tribes mean to them:
I’m now two weeks into girl’s camp. There have already been intense rivalries between the two tribes, war games, capture the flag, and war canoe. I’ve already discussed war games, and capture the flag is no less intense.
I thought that it would be a regular game of capture the flag, red flag at one end of a field, blue at the other. But I was wrong. Again.
Opening day was quite an event. The gates opened at 2pm Sunday for the start of Girl’s camp. By 10am there were already five families lined up outside the gate, waiting to get in. By 2pm they were pushing at the gate, chanting “let us in!”
