Sense of Wonder Camp



For the past twenty years, Full Circle Susquehanna, Inc. has held Sense of Wonder camp for girls during the week that includes the Summer Solstice.  We have had the pleasure, delight and honor to come to know hundreds of wonderful girls, and to introduce them to strong women, teach them basic naturalist skills, walk through woods and streams with them, and watch them grow up into strong women themselves.  We love Sense of Wonder Camp.  

We are writing this letter to let you know that after 20 years, Sense of Wonder is going to take a sabbatical this year.  As a board of directors, we will be putting our efforts into brainstorming, and visioning for the future.  We take seriously our commitment to the girls who attend camp, to the women and men who have attended events we presented and who visit our feminist free lending library, and to our larger community.  

We know that there will be some sad girls receiving this news, and as sad as we are to disappoint them this year, we are very excited about what the future may hold.  May we all come to Sense of Wonder Camp June 20-24, 2016 with new enthusiasm and a fresh and strong vision to inspire us.  Save those dates!

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments you may have.

In gratitude for your support of our work.
