I received a request for a Demo. The requests are specific but they
are happy to take what they can get. They understand that we are
all volunteers here.
Please feel free to contact me if you can help with this Demo.

It was good talking to you on Monday. I apologize I did not get
back to you yesterday as promised, but work got really crazy. Let
me give you a brief overview of our day camp since I ddn't get the
opportunity on Monday. The children will be with us for five weeks
this summer, starting June 18th and running to the end of July. (We
skip the week of the fourth). Camp hours run from 10:00am to
3:00pm. Our staff arrives at 9:00am for set up and prepration for
the day. The children are divided into set groups amongst the
counselors to make crafts, games and field trips go smoothly. There
will be no more then five groups this year. We average about
roughly 30 - 35 kids between the ages of 7 and 12. Activites are on
Mondays, presentations on Wednesdays and field trips on Fridays.
As I mentioned before, the town is a bit isolated and small. Many
of my kids parents work so anything novel seems to caputre their
attention. The kids are very active (boy are they ever!) and also
enjoy hands on activities. Per your suggestion, I downloaded the
SCA brochure and was amazed at the number of activities you engage
in. Some of the activities listed I think the kids may enjoy seeing
and/or participating in are:
Fighting/Period Fencing demo (we could set the groups up as cheering
Cooking (we cannot have a live flame inside the building, but we do
have a fridge and grilling facilities in our pavillion and the kids
love to eat. haha We would be happy to purchase food supplies.)
We are open to anything else that anybody would like to teach us
about. I understand that since this is all volunteers, it's mostly
going to be about what people are willing to do. So if there's
somebody who wants to present something not on the list, by all
means they are welcome. We are completely flexable.
Our primary target week for SCA would be the first week of camp.
That day would be Wednesday, June 20th. If this isn't workable, you
could also do Sports week on Wednesday, July 11th. Whichever is
more convienant is fine with us.
Thank you so much for your help.
