Summer camp isn't just for kids!
Applewild Summer Camp is offering two programs for adults in its summer camp listings. Know an adult who would like to become more comfortable with the digital world? Last year's Internet exploration program was very popular and will return again during session three, July 22 to Aug. 2, from 9 to 11 a.m.
"Exploring email and the Web" will focus on using Google tools such as Gmail, searching online, YouTube and other apps. Mike Grant, technology director at Applewild, will facilitate the camp program.
A new offering will introduce a program that has been taught at Applewild for several years and has helped students get a better handle on American History. "Hands Across Time" is offered during session two, July 8-19, from 9-11 a.m. Hands Across Time is a unique way to learn the timeline of United States history through slogans, hand motions, key notes and telling stories.
Local Applewild history teacher and storyteller Todd Goodwin is pleased to offer this exciting learning opportunity for students of all ages from grade 9 on up, including adults who may have enjoyed history in school and would like a refresher course.
There will not be any long and heavy reading assignments or difficult tests for which to study. Goodwin has been developing and teaching this with students for over 20 years. He has been teaching at Applewild for more than 35 years and chairs the Social Studies Department. He has performed as a storyteller at many camps, libraries, schools and senior centers. He combines his love of history with his passion for teaching students of all ages.
