We have written before about the great symbiotic relationship enjoyed by summer camps and school assemblies. Usually we are discussing summer camps in Michigan where the majority of our school assembly presenters are based during the summer. But we do also perform at summer camps in other states as well. Around the Chicago area we have two locally based performers who are available for summer camps in that parts if the country. And in Southern California we have three great presenters available to appear as part of summer camp activities. With both a Sky Dome Planetarium and an Earth Dome resident in the Los Angeles area we often are called upon to use these in camp formats, but we are also able to offer a couple of science programs, a social studies unit and a creative writing day.
This last show, Young Authors Day, recently appeared as part of a summer camp at the Nightingale Campus Connection in Orcutt, California, and once again Mobile Ed Productions took home great reviews! Overall content? 10 out of 10! Educational Value? 10 out of 10! Performer Professionalism? 10 out of 10?! And Children's Enjoyment? 10 out of 10! Here is what the coordinator wrote:
"The performer was very professional, knowledgeable and worked well with the students!"
In other words, the kids had a great time and Karen was a hit!
But it just goes to reinforce the often made contention that school assemblies, whether in science or astronomy or creative writing, are just as cool during the summer as they are during the school year!
