Happy Earth Day!

By Sarah Rinner, Elementary School Program Director

As the weather grows steadily warmer and the end of the school year gets closer, we are all thinking of summer. Growing up in the countryside of Iowa, Earth Day always made me look forward to summer vacation days spent between the swimming pool and the woods around my house. I don’t think I wore shoes from June to September until I was in junior high (yes, my middle school was ‘junior high’!).
Now spring is my time to reminisce on my favorite childhood experiences, when I collaborated with family and friends to stage our own plays and stories in inspiration of the collaborative and arts-based experiences we provide to youth in our summer camps. So take time today to kick off your shoes, dig your toes into the dirt, and look forward to summertime fun!
What were some of your favorite Earth Day Activities growing up? Did you ever stage your own creative plays? If so, what were they about?
