Week three is out of this world!

Last night the girls cooked their dinners outdoors and slept under the stars.
Everyone watched our outdoor movie- Monsters university before sleeping under the night sky. Midnight madness made a night snack and hiked out to sleep in the tents the set up earlier in the day.
Trailblazers learned to ride without a saddle and boats and boots swamped their canoes!
It's been a full week here at Maripai and tonight the girls will dazzle us with their skits and songs at closing campfire.
