Now that the fall is here and the weather is getting cooler it is nice to go inside and curl up with a good book. We have found lots of great sites on the internet for you book lovers. Check out Kidsreads for some fun book suggestions, games and trivia. It is always nice to have suggestions for new and interesting books.
Camine had a “spooktacular” time in Atlanta at “Art & Soul” Pottery Studio painting pottery with special guests like the Statue of Liberty, Genie, Candy Korn, a student from Hogwarts, an Army “Major Flirt”, a gothic teenager, and two Halloween divas. Alyssa Calloway, Louisa Luranc, Natalie Flanders, Lauren, McCall, and Ana Overton, Mary Stuart DeLong, Laura Bratisax, and Coco Street were able to join us for the afternoon. We had a great time painting and talking about camp. Don’t forget to pickup your pottery!
Happy Halloween from all of your friends at camp. We hope you have a super day and can not wait to hear all about it. Send us an email and let us know all about your big day. We love dressing up at camp and Halloween gives us another excuse to wear costumes. This year Jerry is going as Elvis, Charlotte will be a black cat, Brenda is Cruella Deville, Margaret Lyle is a mouse and Nurse Jenny’s dog Lucy will be a shark. What fun!!
We had a great time at our Girls on the Run Halloween Party on Wednesday. Rockbrook campers Emily Tellman, Carly Farrar, Bren Thompson and Eliza Witherspoon are all part of the Brevard group. We had a blast doing lots of funny relays like the candy corn race, a costume relay and a race we made up called trick or track. It was great fun! Emily is going to be a cool ghost for halloween, Eliza will be an explorer, Bren is going to be Sandy from Grease and Carly is going to be a pink lady from Grease. Cute ideas girls! To learn more about Girls on the Run just visit their website. Maybe there is a Girls on the Run group in your town.

As we mentioned in the last newsletter, the Monarch migration is happening this month. The monarchs travel all the way to Mexico for the winter. As a matter of fact it can take the butterflies almost 2 months to get to Mexico depending on where they started. The record flight for a Monarch is over 256 miles in one day. Wow! Check out this link to learn more about the butterfly migration and see real photos of the butterflies in action.
