This weekend at House In The Wood we had our first OEC staff training (next one is May 5-6). So meet some of our staff...
|Left-Dara, Peggy, Colleen. Right-Jenni, Eric, Alex|
We all met together on Saturday to have our general training. It was mostly going through the OEC staff manual to make sure everyone understood the policies and procedures at House In The Wood .
And then on Sunday, we split into separate groups. Here, Alex trains the fourth grade trail leaders for the Aquatic Study Lesson.

Look what Dara found! He was sooo still that he was camouflaged--he blended in perfectly with the lake weeds. WOW--he just ate a fly while we watched! Totally kool.
Jenni works with Rowe Elementary School now through Northwestern Settlement's AmeriCorps Project YES! program, Dara is an elementary school substitute teacher and Alex is House In The Wood's Outdoor Education Coordinator.
The other group of staff in training are some of our cabin counselors and they spent Sunday training with Colleen.
