Shaving cream is an interesting texture for the campers to explore. We encouraged the campers to explore the texture by mixing the cream with paint. Some campers preferred to paint with pipe cleaners.

The counselors participate in some of the play in order to model playground etiquette, equipment use, and social interactions.
