Together campers will create a Gnome Village in the forest.  Everyone will build their own "gnome home," debris shelter inspired hut.  At the central hearth campers will work on cooking projects, make tea, eat and tell stories.

Intrepid Gnomes will then leave the village on missions to rescue their wild animal neighbors from meddlesome trolls.  They'll learn from their friend Fox how to walk silently and use all their senses  to successfully sneak past the troll and rescue their friend.

Gnome crafts will also be another important focus of camp.  Potential projects may include felted red pointy gnomes hats.  These might be tiny hats that campers leave out for the Gnomes, or maybe even human sized!   Gnomes are also well known for their free-form honeysuckle baskets & finger-woven straps(to go on their hats).
