Adventure Links and Campfire S'mores

For a good part of the day on Sunday, PCB attendees participated in Adventure Links, a team building adventure course designed to encourage teamwork, cooperation, and problem-solving. Teams were composed of young adults from each of the different countries which resulted in careful concentration to break some slight language barriers. Some games required no talking, others no sight, forcing the reliance on your partner to succeed. All teams showed cooperation and patience, resulting in a successful team-building day in the sun.

The evening brought a campfire in the Foxcroft Athletic Center courtyard, where PCB campers enjoyed a relaxed get-together with smores and music. Some of the foreign young adults had never experienced roasting marshmallows and making s'mores--it was a real treat for them!  A long day of activities culminated in participants loosening up, dancing, and playing games around the fire. Silly dances included the Electric Slide, the Macarena, and a new one, Rock the Boat-- introduced to the group by the Northern Ireland teens.

Tomorrow starts the beginning of the CoRE curriculum focusing on the Dignity Model, designed by Donna Hicks at the Weatherhead School at Harvard University as well as the elective classes including art, movement, music, sports, drama programming.

Lights out,
