Leah joined our camp last summer and here's what she had to say:

Dear Families,

It was a joy and privilege to co-lead this camp week. Bringing music and movement together with nature and imagination is something I adore doing with children. And that is what we did! This week we took two walks down by the riverside in Gibbons Park. We learned songs about wildlife and sang them together in our singing and percussion circles. We did creative movement based on what we see in our imaginations (dragons, faeries and gnomes) and what we see outside (caterpillars, butterflies, skunks, toads- and a big one this week: snails!

We stood at the piano and sang traditional folk songs and learned a song I wrote years ago: Little Acorn.

I wanted the children to take something home that reminded them of what we saw and sang about. The drawings in their sketchbooks reflect this. 

A big highlight this week for me was getting the kids to a place where we could write a song together. We wrote, "Down by the Riverside" which tells a story of seeing a fish, a duck and goose while walking over the bridge at Gibbons Park.  In our story the animals led a child to the water, the child dove in to follow the children and went to a sandcastle underwater where they could breathe and explore. 

Some of the children took turns sharing their recorder and piano playing for all to hear. 

Thank you so much for sending such musical and creative children to our week!
