I’ll be serving as Dean for a fun-filled week of summer camp at Silver Lake Camp and Conference Center, in Sharon, Connecticut, July 17-23, 2011.

Diary of a Wimpy Camp Kid
Grades: 4 and 5 (co-ed)

What adventures will befall our fictitious camper? Falling in deer poop, dropping a retainer in the compost toilet, getting loud hiccups while saying Grace? Using journal writing, art making, readings, wacky recipes, and joke telling along with music, creative devotions, nature walks, swimming, ropes course, canoeing and other outdoor fun, together we’ll create an illustrated book of the unusual experiences of a Silver Lake Camp kid.

Register through Silver Lake Camp and Conference Center.

If cost is a barrier, I hear there are a few scholarships available. (Please contact Silver Lake directly for information, or check with your local church or community group to see if they have monies available.)

Made ornaments for activity time during Silver Lake‘s annual Christmas celebration.

For tips on how we created these ornaments using pine cones, acorns and birdseed, visit the education page or download library.

Enjoying my stay at Silver Lake Camp and Conference Center in Sharon, Connecticut.

It’s wonderful to be treated like a rockstar.

Even better to be given a wonderful opportunity to be nurtured and refilled as a creative entity. Nothing like the music of the wind in the trees, the birds singing, the stream gurgling, deer noshing, squirrels scampering, and the stillness of a lake in the fall season.
