I don’t think my photobooth has the Hearts setting – awww! 🙂 <3 Reply emerge, they all scare me a little. Reply I’m thinking how different the experiences of today’s children are compared to those of my children and, even more, to my experiences. I remember playing in the woods behind the house, watching my cat eat a mouse under the back porch and getting so excited because we were the first family on the block to have a TV. My daughter played with one of the first computers – a Kapro, during high school and my grandsons can manipulate a computer with the ease that I could bounce a ball against the wall in my childhood. The world has certainly changed in 60 years. Reply Beth, indeed – things have changed an insane amount in the last 60 years, or even the last 20. But we still try to keep the good simple things in there (stories, play dough, sand, wading pool, bike, hikes, rocks, sticks…). Reply Hey, E – good way to have fun on a cold, cloudy day such as we’ve been having, isn’t it? However, as a society we shouldn’t let go completely of the joys Beth describes (well, maybe the cat and mouse thing isn’t exactly a joy, but you know what I mean), which is why Camp NeeKauNis is giving plenty of serious consideration to how much electronics usage can be permitted during a camp programme and how much should be banned. We need to connect with forces such as water and trees, wind and soil. And for those who don’t know, there are hardly any bigger Camp boosters than the two peculiar folks shown in the photos above! Beth, honey – we should talk! Reply Mama, I am very grateful that Camp is still as unplugged as it is. If I had to unplug completely to go there, I would be glad to do it. Reply I really don’t know that my experiences were better or more useful than those of kids today. They were just very different. I was only commenting on the changes in the world. The kids of today will grow up and need to function in a world even more different than today’s world. They certainly need those experiences you’re giving him. As for Camp, last time I was there I had a computer with a rocket stick so I could Skype with my husband who was back in Vancouver and long distance is expensive. The reception is very iffy. And when people learned I had a computer, there were a few google searches by others. It’s very hard to give up free long distance face to face contact and Google. Reply Also, watching the cat eat the mouse was wonderful. Three year olds don’t have the “ickI factor going yet. It was just fascinating. I also remember a great hour watching ants walking back and forth in and out of an ant hill. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
