Crane Country Day School’s Coyote Camp Open to All K-5 Kids

Each one-week day session during July features a wide variety of activities for students

For the fourth consecutive year, Coyote Camp will be held at Crane Country Day School during the month of July.

This day camp, which is open to the entire Santa Barbara community, features a variety of activities for students entering kindergarten through fifth grade. The camp runs as three one-week sessions, under the direction of Crane music teacher Konrad Kono and first-grade teacher Bridget Matson.

“Many students start by signing up for one week, but as soon as it’s over, they want to come back the next week,” Matson said.

Kono added: “Fridays are everyone’s favorite: Sprinkler Days!”

Each morning of Coyote Camp begins with a rotation of dance, singing and an art class or outdoor adventure. After lunch, every child gets to choose an afternoon activity. Choice time activities have included ice cream making, shrinky dinks, scavenger hunts, jewelry making, board games, computer activities, and the ever-popular “Hobbit Hike.” Many more fun choice time activities will be added this year.

Last summer, current kindergartener Greer, 6, attended Coyote Camp with her cousin, Sophia, 9,  visiting from North Carolina.

“My favorite part was playing in the sprinklers and dancing with Sophia,” Greer said.

Greer’s mother, Suzanne, added: “Coyote Camp is such a great way to have real summer fun. My daughter regularly asks, ‘How many more weeks until Coyote Camp starts again?’”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
