Now adding second graders

Good news!

After receiving some requests from parents of second graders, we’ve decided that our curriculum can easily be adapted to children who are completing second grade (or equivalent) in 2015.

We’ll be changing the Web site and application forms to show that we’re accepting second graders. Changes won’t happen right away, so if you come across a form that doesn’t show second graders on it — don’t worry, we are accepting second graders.

See you at camp!

News update

Three news items for you:

(1) Our sister camp, Peace Camp in San Jose, has announced summer, 2015, dates. Geoff Rimositis, camp director, says that Peace Camp will take place from June 15-19, 2015. We’re planning to announce the dates for Ecojustice Camp 2105 within the next couple of weeks. We’re waiting for some final approvals, but expect to have a week very close to the Peace Camp week.

(2) We’ve added three members to our Advisory Board. Roy King, M.D., a psychiatrist and associate professor emeritus at Stanford, will be advising us on the personal growth aspects of our program. Rafael Gomez, an accomplished outdoorsman and member of the Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto, will be advising us on outdoors skills. And Jodi Levine, Director of Earthroots Field School in Orange County, Calif., will be advising us on curriculum.

(3) Assistant Director Mike Abraham and I are currently seeking funding sources to help us get Ecojustice Camp going. We’ll be seeking grant money to purchase supplies equipment, to provide scholarships to families in need, and to help fund more field trips. If you know of grant money we should apply for, please get in touch — or if you would like to contribute directly, please ask us how to make a tax-deductible donation to our sponsoring organization that is earmarked for Ecojustice Camp.

See you at camp next June,
Dan Harper
Camp Director

Ecojustice camp on track for June, 2015

We’re on the way to Ecojustice Camp in June, 2015! Even though it’s a year away, Assistant Camp Director Mike Abraham and I are already deep into planning.

We’ll be offering Ecojustice Camp on the week before or after our sister camp, Mosaic Peace Camp in San Jose, so that families can register their children for two consecutive weeks of fun, socially aware camps.

We’re developing a fun program that offers campers an opportunity for to grow personally, to learn age-appropriate campcraft and outdoor skills, to learn basic ecosystem concepts, and to apply what they learn to the ecological problems facing us today.

Mike and I would love to hear from you. Please use the comments form below.

Yours for ecojustice,
