Upon arriving at the base camp on Saturday, we were put to work setting up tents for all the groups. After that we went to the Community Center in nearby Elmsdale where we registered, ate a lasagna supper, and quickly got started into our first framing session.
On Saturday and Sunday combined, we had five framing sessions. W.I.L.D. does more than just send people out into the wilderness. It equips people with tools they can use to interpret the experiences they face and maximize their learning potential. Framing is all about preparing for anticipated experiences so that we can learn as much as possible from them.
Our main teacher was Dwight Peterson, one of the faculty from Baptist Bible College in Pennsylvania.
