On sunny Saturday, July 16, Jõekääru Laste Suvekodu welcomed 23 prospective campers, ranging from the ages of three months to 6 years old. The purpose of the morning event was to introduce or re-introduce the camp to both parents and their children. Krista Spence, JSS member, and Katrin Tamm, esma-abi, were the main leaders running the half-day event, as well as some of the counsellors at different activities.
Families attended from cottages, as well as from a variety of cities, to come be a part of this fun day. Even some grandparents came along, which made it a three- generation day of activities. Part of the fun for the older generations was seeing how many things were the same, and what had changed at the camp over the years.
After registering and receiving name tags, the families started at the Timmas' art cabin, where Andres Musta had prepared an art activity. The campers worked on a piece of art, while parents heard a bit about the art program.
Next up was walking to the youngest group cabins, at the far end of the camp. Toddlers, strollers, and dogs proceeded across the newly re-built bridge over the river. No turtle was to be seen, but we hoped to find frogs at the smaller creek ahead.
