SCA Seattle Community Programs kicked off the School Year Program with a fabulous All Corps Retreat. All three School Year Crews (the Old Faithfuls, Thunderbirds and Albatross) gathered at Camp Long for an intro to SCA. Together we maintained 1800 ft of trail and completed 480 hours of service and education.
Trail maintenance projects included: tread repair, debris removal, brushing, step removal, and more.
Educational activities included: Leave No Trace, Knots, First Aid, Map & Compass, Water Awareness, Nature Yoga, Teambuilding Games, and more.
The returning students (Old Faithful Crew Members) planned and lead the event. SCA staff Meredith Stone and Sarah ZA also joined! Seattle Parks and Rec staff Sheila Brown and Jacobo Jimenez introduced SCA youth to Camp Long and the trail projects. Check out photos from All Corps Retreat .

Together we planted over 500 trees at in both the West and East Duwamish Greenbelts. Thanks to all who came out to Green Seattle Day and the Nature Consortium December Project.
