This meandering walk will take place on grounds of camp (not strenuous and no bushwhacking) and will focus on the amazing and wondrous plants and trees growing at camp.  This walk will bring alive the words of Jewish tradition that “God created everything in nature with purpose” (making it possible for Abraham to deduce there was a single Creator).  Participants will learn about edible and medicinal plants – which flowers make tasty trailside treats, which plants treat poison ivy and mosquito bites.  Participants will discover the Hidden Secret of trees and learn an ancient Jewish rain “dance.”
