    Summer Fun for Kids

    A Week in the WoodsSponsor: weekinthewoods.

    orgAges: 7-107Dates: June 25-29Location: Tanana Valley

    State ForestDescription: A Week in

    the Woods is an opportunity for adults and youth to work side by side, inventing and cre-ating objects from the natural resources found in the forest. WITW values the interaction between youth and adults in the artistic process, however, WITW is not a dedicated youth camp and youths 18 years old and younger must be accom-panied by adults who are not

    only responsible for them, but who plan to learn along with them. (Teenagers, age 16-18, wont necessarily have to work with their adult co-learner on projects.) Adults also provide the coaching and guidance nec-essary for youth to focus and complete their ideas. WITW instructors are skilled crafts-men and encouraging teach-ers, but they do not provide the discipline and persuasion often necessary to help youth carry out their plans. Adults are ultimately responsible for the progress of their youth co-learners.
