Fall Fun Day

Fall Fun Day 2014 at Dragonfly Day Camp was filled with exciting activities and Camp Wyandot traditions for our Explorer Clubs! Among other activities, our Explorers adventurously experimented with a variety of raw and cooked squash. At the end of the day, not even one explorer could disagree that squash is tasty (especially the pumpkin cookies and spaghetti squash!). It was indeed a fun fall day with Camp Wyandot.
