There is also "solo time," where girls reflect on their experi- ence and write poems in a favorite spot in the woods, and there is "Girls' Group," where they gather to talk about issues and coping with the pressures of daily life. And did we forget to mention the great lunches and dinners too? Plus singing and readings around the campfire to finish each day. Girls form strong friendships with each other and with the camp staff, who are experienced teachers and professionals. By the time camp ends, the girls usually feel a little relieved, but at the same time they are sad to be leaving and excit- ed about the future. At the end of the summer, the new girls join older girls in the year-round High Rocks program, which they can stay in until they graduate from high school. In those four years, they will come to week- ly gatherings at High Rocks. get chances to take short classes in in- teresting topics like photography or yoga, travel occasionally around the state for conferences, get help pre- paring for college and visit different colleges on High Rocks trips. They also have a chance to return to the campground every summer for "Camp Steele" {named after Virgi- nia Steele. a great High Rocks sup- porter), where they work together on challenging projects. They will also run the after-school program "'Use Your Noodle," where they design and teach lessons to elemen- tary students in Hillsboro and Rich- wood, and they become advisors to the people who run High Rocks and role models for younger girls in the program. We seek girls who really want to come, and who we feel would get the most out of our program and get the most back.
