We are so excited to report Sense of Wonder Camp is back!!!!! 

FULL CIRCLE SUSQUEHANNA, INC. is sponsoring the 21st Sense of Wonder camp for girls!

Camp Philosophy: "If I had influence over the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life." ~Rachel Carson

We want girls to know the beauty and mystery of nature and to see and learn about female role models who hold a deep regard for the Earth and the amazing life on Her.

A Sense of Wonder Camp: NEW LOCATION: Millport Conservancy.  Emails to past participants will be sent out this weekend.

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.

Sense of Wonder Camp 2014

We are excited about this year's camp.  We actually have homework or moon-work for the girls before camp begins.  We have asked that they follow the moon or keep a moon journal now until camp begins on Monday, June 23rd.  We will talk about the moon cycles and patterns that they observed. The National Wildlife Foundation will be our guide for this activity. http://www.nwf.org/kids/family-fun/outdoor-activities/moon-journal.aspx

Yesterday, we walked the some trails at Millport Conservancy.  What a beautiful space.  Violets, geese, other wild flowers and mating ducks.  Peaceful and contemplative.  It will be interesting to see how camp ebbs and flows this year in a new place.
