The Communicator

Naomi Cutler, counselor at Camp Lookout, stands on the Lake Michigan beach after having spent a day in the woods doing an activity known as “Listening Point.” During Listening Point, campers spread out in the forest, spending hours alone in nature. Some, like Cutler, brought instruments such as guitars and ukuleles. Others could be found reading, writing in notebooks, or simply laying amongst the leaves and looking up at the trees above. No matter what activities they chose to do, all the Listening Point participants were spending the day taking in the natural world—without cellphones.
