Nestled along the outskirts of the trampoline zone, next to the massive Oregon trees sits HCSC’s newest addition, compliments of Roxy. We now have a tepee, much like the tepees designed and used by the Plains Indians. Tepee stands for “dwelling place” and is a simple home defined by nature and dictated by the elements.
This session, the girls got to experience first hand how to build a tepee. They all designed and assembled their very own desktop tepee. Roxy really outdid themselves, because this was the best arts and crafts activity ever to occur at camp! Every girl approached their tepee design in a very different way, and all worked so hard that they almost missed dinner.
The girls embraced their tepees as an artistic statement of form and function. And while tepees are at home in nature, the tepees created during the Roxy activity will be at home on a desktop or dresser.
To go along with the tepees, every participant got a Roxy T Shirt.
