Henry David Thoreau would appreciate this learning experience. Sitting under a shady tree as you study.
Alas, there was no pond, but there was a lot of playground equipment, which the young students probably enjoyed more anyway.
Welcome to Educamp, a pilot program offered this summer at
Carolyn Rosas Park in Rowland Heights – a place where kids 4 to 12 years
old study math and language arts in the morning, then kick back for day
camp fun in the afternoon.
“It’s a great program for the kids. I like to take them
outside to study under the trees,” said teacher Kris Mendoza. “We want
to make learning fun with different games and activities.”
