Sophia Camp: Story Through Photos

Blog post by: Nayana Peterhans

During the Sophia camp we did many things throughout the whole day.  Each morning we started by going on a nature walk.  Each nature walk had to do with what element we where learning about that day.  The elements are fire, water, air, space, and earth.  On the day of air we went to a swamp, with many different birds flying around in the air and through the wind.  Here are some photos from the nature walk we did on the day of air:

The next day, it was fire day, and we went to a native plant garden and learned about how the plants here in San Diego survive the hot sun and desert climate.  Here are some photos from fire day:

And lastly for water day we went to the Women’s Museum of California in Point Loma and learned how women have gained rights throughout history, and are still gaining rights.  We also got to try on some dresses from different eras.

After the nature walks we came back to the house and got a chance to go into the pool before lunch was served.

Each day at lunch we had homemade vegetarian food and also a guest speaker, a woman leader who came to talk to us.

Lastly at the end of the day we did some arts, craft, and self care products.  Each day we made a flower with words on it describing you as a person, but the words related to the element we had learned about that day: earth, fire, water, air, and space.  One day we also got a small art lesson and got to learn how to draw a lotus flower!!  The self care products were made from all natural ingredients.

The Sophia camp provided a platform for the girls to bond and make new friendships and discover the leader in each one of us!
