Here is the Spring Tribe schedule. Informal and open to change!
A version of this will be posted on a communal wall, for anyone to add activities or workshops at times that suit.
Thank-you to those who have already contributed! So far we have:
Origami, Wrestling, Yoga, Needle felting, Portrait drawing, Crochet, Macrame!
The sharing circle is an opportunity to come together, share and listen about our unschooling lives. We may find common issues or interesting ideas that can be taken further in discussion groups.
There is a market place planned for Sunday morning. All family members welcome to contribute! Anything goes: arts, crafts, pre-loved goods, food, plants or services.
Remember to bring some $$ for the market and other activities.
The purpose of our time together is to share our skills with one another and build relationships. Therefore the camp is created by everyone sharing their skills as much, or as little, as they feel comfortable. People are able to join in if and when they choose to.
At other camps there has been activities such as book binding, fletching, flax weaving, candle making, yoga, skipping, wild food discussions, insect discoveries, wacky science, paper crafts, coffee connoisseurs, whittling, recipe swaps, tie dying, felting, print making, music/concerts, women's circles, men's circles, walks, cricket, volleyball, swimming, playing, and much more.
Prior to camp, the people coming offer to take an activity (please let us know in your registration email or any email thereafter) then a 'loose and flexible' timetable will be created that guides the time together. If there is sufficient interest in the activity it is run by the person who wishes to take it on the day with no pressure and loads of support. It can be as grand or as simple as they wish to make it.
Additional to the activities there are discussion sessions where a pre-determined topic is discussed. These can run simultaneous to activities. These provide a chance for in-depth discussion in a group and small groups to allow debate, questions, support and information to be shared. Topics range from world wide issues, to personal struggles and celebrations. The topics are generated by those who attend.
A opening/welcome circle is held at the start of camp to allow introductions and/or mihi by all the families attending. Additionally a closing/farewell circle is held at the end of camp to share our final goodbyes, the highlights and any further intentions.
