Cabin 1 Videography was a good class because we learned how to use equipment such as video cameras, and videotape recorders. We learned the parts of a camera and how to use them to our advantage when shooting. We got the opportunity to use the field cameras out of the classroom and gathered lots of footage for our music video. We got the chance to play with equipment that we donít have much opportunity to use out of camp. We learned how to edit footage and to choose the good shots for our video. We now understand how some production companies make their movies, shows, commercials or other different videos. WCSR Radio
By Fletcher Bouvier
Cabin 11 In Radio class we learn how to become a D.J. and how to run a radio station. When you think you are ready, you can ask to take a test. If you pass the test and become a 1st class D.J. you can have your own radio show. While an other kid is taking the test you can learn from his mistakes and not repeating them while you take your test. But we do not do that many because Ines is a great teacher and explains everything very well. After we learn how to operate the radio equipment in class and pass the DJ exam we can broadcast to our friends in the camp. The other radio teachers are Tom Gibson, Eric Shansby and Tim Von Hollweg. Michael Cannella made first class DJ this month. Patrick Mooney and Scott Kominers made second class taking radio for the first time this year.

Cabin 6 Wind surfing this year with Corey has been a great new experience for me. At the beginning of the month we would go on boards and play games out on our boards. Then when it started getting windy out on the lake Corey would send us out with sails to try it out. He would stay on the wind surfing dock and tell us what to do. At the beginning of the summer I didnít know how to windsurf very well, but by the last two classes I had gotten pretty good at it. Windsurfing has been one of my favorite periods this year and I hope to continue it next year. Wood Shop
By Alex Bryson
Cabin 16 Wood shop is awesome. Duncan and Tommy letís you make whatever you want. I made a Ping Pong Paddle that I use in Ping Pong class. The teachers help you with everything. You can use hammers, drills, nails, glue, saws, planes and if you are responsible, the band saw and the jigg saw. Some of my peers have made cars, planes, birdhouses, CD racks, boxes, puzzles and lots of other cool things. Itís a difficult process to create and finish wood projects. First you must plan on paper what youíre going to make. Then you draw it on the wood and cut it out. Then file the wood until itís smooth. Then you can use sandpaper end then either stain or paint your project. Woodshop is offered 1B, 2B, 3B, 4B and 5B.
