Summer Happenings

We have some fun outings coming up this summer. Here’s a sample.

Llamas

We’ll visit a farm in Manor where an artist and weaver spins the wool of her eight llamas. If it’s not too hot, we’ll take the llamas for a walk.

 

 

 

 

 

norwood-loomIn Round Rock, we’ll visit with a weaver who has lots of looms that campers will get to use. She will also give each camper a cardboard loom, show them how to work on it, and let them take it home.

 

 

didgeridooIn Austin, we will visit with a musician and actor and her collection of didgeridoos, and she will show you how to play them.

In addition to being out and about, we will be doing lots of fun things at the house this summer, like make paper, communicate by walkie-talkie, cook and bake (and eat!), play with our parachute, “soak” in the bathtub boat full of beans and lots more. And, of course, there will be lots of Spanish for your kiddo to soak up.

What we’ve been up to

The kids had a great time the first week of camp! One of our outings this week was to the turtle pond at UT and the Texas Union Underground. We also went to the State Capitol and the Butler Park splash pad.  Spots are still available, so contact me, Megan Baker, for more information.

 


“Both Madi and Nick voluntarily shared with me, several different times during the week, that they really like this camp. I love that Megan took the time to want to get to know the children and their interests. When I picked the children up at the end of the day, they were always in great spirits.”

 

“The kids are loving exploring the city and all it has to offer. Thank you, Megan! I also appreciate you keeping the fees reasonable. That means a lot when you have more than one child. We definitely plan on coming back next summer.”
