Take2 Middle School Development Underway!

Dear Take2 Supporter,

     We’re expanding!  Through frost-covered windows, the Take2 team has been hard at work planning the curriculum (and dreaming of summer) for our Take2 Middle School camp.  Nothing could be more energizing than creating new content with talented educators who share a passion for social learning!

     Take2 Middle School camp takes concepts from the original Take2 camp and challenges campers to apply them in more generalized settings through the planning and execution of several excursions.  While taking part in these excursions, teams of campers will work together to target goals relevant to the weekly theme, and have fun meeting and making new friends.  Our weekly themes include:

  • Listening – What is expected of me as a listener?  What does it mean to be an effective listener?
  • Communicating – It’s more than just words.
  • Code-Switching – Knowing the difference between “regulated” and “unregulated” social systems and how to adjust my behavior for each.
  • Flexibility – Bringing it all together using concepts of flexibility; knowing how to compromise and go with the flow.

     Up to eight campers will join us for our middle school pilot this summer.  Your contribution provides Take2 with the necessary funds needed for this exciting expansion.

  • $20 – will pay for Metro passes for three campers
  • $100 – will purchase one FlipCam to enhance social learning through video self-modeling (VSM)
  • $1000 – will allow one financially needy child to attend camp this summer

   To follow the progress of the Take2 Middle School development, or for more information about Take2, check us out at www.take2camp.org. As always, thank you for your generous contributions and support.

 

Warmly,

Callie Stezar & Lynn Cannon
