Thanks to widely-popularized educational and neuroscientific research, it seems like everyone is (finally!) talking about progressive education! We all want our children to be engaged citizens, stewards of the earth, joyful learners, and innovative thinkers—a radical idea when Green Acres School championed it in the 1930s. Now we know that cultivating this type of scholarship and leadership is more essential than ever—and Green Acres is proud to be among the original progressive schools in the nation.
On Sunday, October 28 from 1:30-3:30 PM, families are invited to discover what authentic progressive education looks like at Green Acres School’s “Hands-On, Not Heads-Down!” Discovery Day. The afternoon will showcase all that progressive education has to offer through a variety of challenging, engaging, and fun activities. Learn more here.
There's something for everyone at Discovery Day and this event is not to be missed. Current and prospective families are welcome, as well as curious community members! RSVP to Judy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our camp website will be updated by November 15, 2018. Please check back!
Welcome to Camp
Hello Green Acres!! Camp is right around the corner! Allow me to introduce myself, my name is David Levine, and this is my 6th year working at camp. I just finished my freshman year at Cornell University, and I am seeking a BS and a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. Now you may ask, how does a college student from New York end up at Green Acres? Well, the answer is simple: I was a camper here! I started all the way back in 2001, when I was in Unit B! I moved up through all of the units, finishing up my time as a camper in Unit H. Next, I became a community service counselor after taking a year off, before becoming a counselor in training, and then reaching my current position as a counselor! As you may see, I have been at Green Acres for a very long time, and I absolutely love it here! This camp helped shape my childhood, and I have had a blast helping my campers enjoy camp as much as I did! I am so excited to get started this summer, which has nearly arrived!!
Now the next question you may ask is: what do I do at camp? Well, I am a counselor in Unit GH here at Green Acres. I teach sports to our Senior Campers, and I am also one of the day trip counselors this summer. I will be accompanying our oldest campers on fun weekly excursions to places like the Adventure Park in Baltimore, and on a tubing trip on the Shenandoah! Throughout the summer, I will be posting updates to this blog regarding all of our fabulous camp activities, and what all of our great campers are up to, from the Kangaroos in Unit K to our oldest campers in Unit GH! From the July 4th Fun Run to swimming and Spirit Days, I am giddy with excitement for all of the fun things we have in store for the campers!! Check back frequently for more blog updates.
I cannot wait to get the summer started!! Go Camp!!
