One of the new additions to the line up of activities was bird house construction Session 6 at Camp Howard. The bird houses were pre-cut out of 3/4″ pine in a traditional slant box pattern with bevels at the camp. Campers assembled the houses with screws and glue then painted them in the color scheme of the original cabins at Camp Howard. The Fircrest Unit of cabins was the original unit with 6 cabins. The board and bat buildings are painted in a rust red paint with burnt orange trim. All of the original buildings at the camp are painted in that color scheme.
