To All of our Campers
and Camp Parents!
The Marcellus Olde Home Days Parade is Saturday, June 1st at 3pm. We'd like to invite you and your children to march down Main Street with us!
We will meet along Slate Hill Rd near the firehouse at 2:30. If you can join us we'd love to see you there - we'll bring some fresh clay from Harrison's Hideaway to paint faces.
As an added bonus - every camper that participates in the parade will get a free 2013 summer camp t-shirt when they come to camp!
Please RSVP by May 31st.
Hope to see you in the parade!

Nature in the City
Baltimore Woods Nature in the City brings authentic natural science learning to K-6 grade urban schoolchildren. Supported by the Syracuse City School District and corporate sponsors, tied to the Syracuse City School District curriculum and New York State Science Standards, lesson content supports teachers while directly impacting students. Holding programs in parks and neighborhood green spaces as well as the classroom, students' earliest learning experiences in the sciences are relevant, meaningful and fun. Nature in the City is an efficient program. Through walking field trips, student learning is
neighborhood-based. Carbon footprint is reduced, while transportation costs, and valuable instruction time are conserved. Most importantly, student science learning is enhanced, as evidenced though standardized and pre/post learning tests.
