I am continuing to watch the forecast and as of right now, we will be modifying the schedule for camp to run Noon-3pm. Campers can start arriving at 11:55. Come dressed for mud and being wet. I suggest rubber rain boots or sandals (not socks and tennis shoes).

If storms continue to develop, we will have to cancel. The National Parks Standards for lightening can be found here: https://www.nps.gov/articles/lightning-safety.htm . If that is the case, we will cancel no later then 11am to give parents plenty of notice.

Please have campers bring their lunches and we will eat together about 12:10.

Thanks for your flexibility and we are hoping to see everyone later today!

I was obviously hoping for a sunny and warm last day, but my heart is warm and these smiles make it sunny. Today is the last day of our 2020-2021 school year. Love all these kids so much and I count myself incredibly blessed to have been their teacher this year. Building this school from scratch has been hard work, but itโ€™s been 1010% worth it. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ Have a great summer kiddos!

On hot muggy days, we like to explore (and relax) in the shade and preferably in the hammocks ;)
