“As promised, the best stories come from our break camps. The youngest kids, those that are 5-7 are wonderful and vibrant and full of the most imaginative ideas that you could ever imagine; or couldn’t because you have left that version of yourself behind many years ago. On Monday morning, since the snow still hadn’t agreed to fall, we replaced some traditional winter sports with a scavenger hunt. Part of the hunt required the kids to find the chickens and name them. Would you expect any names other than Aeisha Dark Star and Aeisha White Star Jr. from a group of 5-7 year olds? But the best story is, unfortunately for you, one that I cannot share. Using the imagination you have left, try and connect a person using the bathroom in the woods for the first time and a rubber chicken. Obviously the only way to connect these is with Pok-O.
Our lecture series continues tonight. Our very own Sharp Swan will be presenting an engaging talk on the history of the Santa Clara Logging Company and we can’t wait to have him back. We hope to see you at the Pok-O-Queen at 7:00PM. Until next week, enjoy the spring!” [Making Learning Natural: Winter Break Camp and Sharpe.]
Announcement: “While we are very excited for Sharp’s lecture, which is definitely happening at 7PM, we are CANCELLING the SNOW TUBING EVENT TONIGHT. Despite holding out hope for Mother Nature’s latest effort to produce enough snow to make tubing a reality, she has once again disappointed us. Oh well, now more folks can come to Sharp’s lecture!”
