The dogs are barking again. It’s what they do even when their people are quarantined. Nothing has changed for them. Maybe they have noticed we are home more often, but they seem unconcerned about the state of things. Other dogs are out walking with their people and we feel the side glance of hope as our dogs would like to get a turn walking. Thankfully they have a big yard as their people are inconsistent walkers at best. That is something that hasn’t changed. What has changed of course for all of us is how we are existing in an uncertain time.
At CYO Camp we have shifted to working from home and if on camp property we work in physical solitude connecting via our electronic devices. We are happy to do so to help keep the virus away. We are happy to help protect ourselves and others. Another change we have noticed is that folks are turning to and tuning more and more into what is happening online. You may have noticed that as well; camps and outdoor places are staying connected with electronic offerings such as web cams and online opportunities. Count us in on that!
We can’t play at camp in person, but we can enjoy a small bit of camp via the internet. Look for opportunities from us every day or so with links to nature/craft activities, videos, web cam offerings, and more.
To get us started here is an easy activity to get us outside. The sun is shining, and you don’t need much space for this one; all ages can participate: You could even close your eyes and pretend you are at camp!
Grab some paper and a pencil, pen, marker or crayon. Find a spot to sit outside… maybe your front or back yard, your porch. If sitting outside isn’t an option sit by a window. Once you get comfy just take a deed breath... look, listen, smell…
After about 10 minutes, jot down a few notes or drawings in response to the following…
Second option...try this at night!
Once you are done, we hope you will share via camp’s Instagram or Facebook. Bonus fun points if you get someone to take a picture of you while do this and then post it for us to see.
Until next time…
Camp is such an unique experience! Our staff take turns sharing their perspectives of the experience that is CYO Camp Rancho Framasa!
Hot off the press…
