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.

We are looking for several books for our library collection...

There are a few books we would really like to add to our lending library collection.  If you have any of these, and are finished reading them, perhaps you'd consider donating them?  Or, maybe you'd like to sponsor the purchase of one of them?  Let us know - we'd be ever so grateful!

1. Always Rachel: the letters of Rachel Carson and Dorothy Freeman, 1952-1964, an intimate portrait of a remarkable friendship (edited by Martha Freeman [Dorothy's granddaughter and published by Beacon Press)
