Oregon prohibits overnight summer camps, allows day camps under new guidelines

OUTDOOR DAY CAMPS ARE A YES!!! IN OREGON IN 2020. The governor provided guidelines for opening camps safely this Summer. Unfortunately many overnight and sports camps do not fit into the guidelines but outdoor day camps such as the ones we operate in partnership with various Parks and Rec Departments are permitted with precautionary measures such as distancing, hand washing, group size etc. There will be significantly LESS supply of camp programs this summer. If you are a fan of Coyle Outside we hope that this news gives you a leg up on registering for programs you need this Summer. Check out our Oregon schedule with links to registration here. AND share this with folks you know will need to know. https://www.coyleoutside.com/parks-and-rec-classes https://www.oregonlive.com/coronavirus/2020/05/oregon-prohibits-overnight-summer-camps-allows-day-camps-under-new-guidelines.html

Oregon will allow day camps to move forward with significant restrictions, but overnight camps will not be allowed to operate this summer amid the coronavirus pandemic.

If the coronavirus spreads at the rate that experts believe it will, schools, workplaces and businesses will continue to close. Here’s a thread of silver lining. We’ll have more time for each other and nature. And, at least so far, nature's always open. Getting outside — but at a safe distance...

Let's Stop Telling Our Kids to Be Careful All the Time

This article highlights the importance of providing risk to youth and points to the ironic risk in prioritizing protection and "being careful". We live in a world that is, by most conventional measures, safer than ever before in human history (see Steven Pinkers book The Better Angels of Our Nature for a compilation of research and evidence on the subject.) Coyle Outside is a strong proponent of youth being given the experiences they need (particularly those that have elements of adversity) while they are not yet "old dogs" and can still learn new tricks easily.

This is probably a phrase you say on a regular basis without even realizing it, but it doesn't support raising confident kids. Are you guilty?

Watch this. A vote for kids in nature. The difference in experience of childhood between generations seems clearly to be getting larger than it has ever been in human history. Its not clear to me that we are prepared to guide youth through a world that is so different than anything we have ourselves navigated, or our own parents for that matter. https://youtu.be/1XDVDyDJ3s0

How We Are Treating Kids as Mirrored By How We Treat the Very Old: Crippling Them with Caution | Let Grow

Check out this article by let grow. I relate to both ends of the spectrum. Every time I'm at home on a visit I make sure never to do my mom the favor of fetching her something from the kitchen or grabbing something out of the car that she needs. Even if I may look like a jerk to someone else. And, in a recent school program we worked with there was indeed a rule against kids running outside. It is the nature of our world to be more and more cautious and I do believe there are consequences which may not be aligned with what we want for elderly and young people.

Hospitals' fear of elderly people falling is so great that they are preventing them from walking, reports The Washington Post. This is ostensibly for the patients' own good -- yet not getting up for even just a few days is crippling them: Hospitals have become so overzealous in fall prevention that....

Four Surprising, Science-Backed Benefits of Free Play | Let Grow

This article on Free Play is great. In my view its somewhat problematic that we use the word Play to describe what small children, teenagers and adults do. The word seems to convey lightness and freedom, recreation. But consider Play for young children is distinct from what it is for older people. It is critical and necessary. It should not exist as an opportunity or as enrichment or recess but as mandatory, even primary. For a long time I was ignorant to seeing its import as a result of my relationship to the word. I viewed it as a break, as reward, special time etc. And maybe that is what it is for adults largely. But it is just an entirely different animal for people who are in a short window of learning how to manage all sorts of internal and external operations. Consider that learning to read, write or do math in lieu of free play could be perilous?? I wish it were called something else. https://letgrow.org/four-surprising-science-backed-benefits-of-free-play/

Join an outdoor class of homeschoolers to explore Earth Science in a hands-on way designed to spur curiosity, student-led problem solving and skill mastery!

As we observe natural cycles, we’ll ask questions and find answers about the plants, animals and environment around us.
We’ll aim to progressively master skills like fire building, shelter making, navigation, water purification, and plant identification.
We’ll practice trail etiquette and first aid in real-world scenarios on field trips around the Valley.

Each week an email will be sent out with suggestions and resources for connecting what we learn to core standards for science.

https://letgrow.org/setting-your-kids-up-to-fail-at-summer-camp/
This is a good article that relates something I witness in running camps. Each Summer we have several campers whose parent pull them out of camp after one day or call with concerns that their child isn't having fun isn't being treated a certain expected way. Occasionally these are clear and valid and useful communications that we are grateful to get and can use to improve upon. However, just as often, they are of a different sort that seems to be an expression of how challenging it is to be a parent in 2019. This phenomenon seems to be becoming more common as each year passes. It might be that kids will tap into their parents' anxiety if there is some benefit they see (control perhaps?). Complaining and manipulating might be fostered as adults acknowledge or validate what occurs to them as their child's genuine suffering (And, if so, how did it get this way? That it occurs to a parent as so significant). My sense is that the best thing that can happen for a kid is to have some tough moments at camp (or anywhere) and live to tell the story. To deal with life being unfair or not what one wanted or with other kids I don't like and make it through gives one the chance to see that this is truly survivable, all by him or her self. Its better even than fun, it is a victory. This is what I believe is possible and what one gives a child when they don't stand in the way of adversities. Don't take that from them, its a gift disguised. Or, at least, consider that that is the case.
