Cohousers, We are trying connect intentional community folks with a great summer camp coop that we found in the mid west. In fact we've arranged for them to devote a week of family camp to people interested in community living. Interested means living in, used to live in, want to live in, know someone that lives in community. Here is the little blurb: So, just imagine that it is September 2006. Summer is almost over, but Fall has not really started. I imagine having lunch with a good old friend. We have known each other since high school and we have all of this history, but we are very different people. He says 'I don't get it. My family goes on a cruise for vacation. You take your family to 300 acres of undeveloped woods with an old farmhouse in the middle. Why do you go there?' I tell him 'OK, here is an example.' It was lunchtime on the third day. We had not seen the kids since breakfast. Our three year old daughter tells us that she has been playing fairies in the magical forest. It is a (with hands on hips) 'Real Forest' she tells us and that she is (with head toss) 'Too busy' after lunch with story time to come with me for a canoe ride. Our six year old son informs us that he and his friends have been helping the staff doing 'real work' clearing paths and that this afternoon they are planning to go looking for Indian arrowheads. So strike two on the canoe ride. He also informs me that after dinner he will be busy. The kids have decided that they are going to take over choosing and preparing lunch tomorrow for the whole camp. They have a meeting with the cook who has agreed to help them with their planning. How else can I explain to my friend how much more Circle Pines Family Camp is than just a summer vacation? If this sort of adventure appeals to you please consider joining me and my family for Family Camp at Circle Pines from August 23-27, 2006. We'll have a certified lifeguard, a professional cook, and trained staff from our ACA-certified summer camp. Families can choose rustic cabins or their own tents. There will be spontaneity, lots of kid-planned projects, and a few 'organized' activities. A relaxing and energizing blend of family time, solitude and adult companionship awaits. Circle Pines is located midway between Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, an easy drive from most locations in the Midwest. The three hundred acres have been a campground and cooperative retreat since the 1930s. Check the web site at http://www.cpines.org/ or contact us for more information.
