Recalling day camp


On July 13th Camp Alex day campers gathered outside to enjoy Fly Catcher Boy presented “kamishibai-style”.

Counsellors and eight campers, age 5 +, proved to be our best audience yet! During an intimate, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants presentation, yours truly was prepared for almost anything. Girls stroked my ceramic cat, boys tossed my inflatable globe about, and everyone, including the big kids, gave full attention to the storyteller and the story. Each child chose a character colouring page and dove in. Everyone took turns trying to pick up plastic flies with chopsticks. The boy who won also got the overall prize for first to comment on the author’s unusual earrings…a small fork and spoon.  One never knows when utensils might be needed.   A good time was had by all.
