Chloe went to The Naturalist Adventure Camp last week. It was the perfect place for her. She really had a wonderful time. There was lots of exploring, learning, and playing. They spent their days at Mission Trails Regional Park, Torrey Pines State Reserve, and Tecolote Canyon Nature Park. Chloe was the youngest child there. The ages ranged from 7 to 13. I think the older kids kept an eye out for Chloe. She even had an helper assigned to her, McClain. She and Chloe instantly fell in love with each other. Everyday when I dropped her off or picked her up, they were hugging. It was so cute. I think the idea of having and older sister for Chloe and a younger for McClain was very appealing. Chloe came home teaching me about all the things she learned, what a delight ! The last day they had a group skit that was based on a Native American Folk story that involved "Mother Spider" and the "Sun".
You can read about the camp here. I highly recommend it. It was developed by two very intelligent and loving teachers from Chloe's school. It is such a nice feeling to take your child to a camp like this, knowing that she will be loved and nurtured and challenged at the same time.
