I can’t believe that summer is here (For me we’re in the throws of winter down in Australia…) and it’s time for some summer fun or summer schooling. The team have put together some blog posts to encourage and inspire your summer holidays.

- Summer Students From Away – One of the learning events we have done for the past few summers is have an international student stay with us. This gives us a reason to go exploring and it’s fun to show our world to someone from away.
- Going on Vacation – One of my favorite things to do on vacation is to bring along books to read. Granted I love getting out with the fellows on the kayaks and seeing the beauty that is in the world around us, but curling up with a good book and having friendly chipmunks scope me out for food, and listening to birds chatter in the trees around me… is just a wee taste of heaven for me. I simply ADORE that time.
