JY17-G02 Summertime, sunshine, green rolling hills, wildlife, and you! Spend a week communing with the writer within you at our retreat in the Bristol Hills. Explore with professional writers and naturalists along the Finger Lakes Trail as you learn the art of observation. Try your hand at a variety of natural arts activities, both ancient and modern. Create field journals in which to sketch and write stories, dramatic monologues, and poems probing the past, present, and future of the landscape, plants, and animals. Our favorite pieces will be used to create an all-camp anthology. Please dress to hike, and pack a bag lunch each day. If you have your own camera, please bring that as well! One day will be spent at Onanda Park on Canandaigua Lake, gully adventuring and swimming at the beach. The younger Where’s Walden group and the older Outdoor Writer group will function as separate classes, but some activities will overlap. If you would like to make a request for an accommodation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 10 days prior to the event.
