Hours of instructional time

One of the summer camp field trips was to Lilley Cornett Woods. The staff had an hour long hike planned. We had a camper who said he had never been in the woods before and was very hesitant at first. He stuck close to the counselors, often holding their hands. As the hike progressed, he saw that he was able to navigate the trail. You could watch his confidence grow in real time. By the end of the trail, he was so proud of what he had managed to do. There was a smile on his face the rest of the day.
