The Caterpillar’s Summer Day Camps Now Enrolling
The Caterpillar has been hard at work preparing the best summer day camps for kids of all ages. Now, with the season only a month a way, we invite you to enroll your youngsters in one of the exciting programs in our 2013 Summer Nature Day Camps! We’re offering five camps this year over six weeks. Kids 5-11 are welcome to join our fun and engaging Music Camp, Nature Camp, and Art Camp. We have a special addition to our lineup specifically for older kids aged 8-12: Horse Camp, in which they’ll learn the basics of horse riding! We are also offering a program designed for our junior explorers aged 4-6, Preschool Nature Camp. This program will run twice this year, at the end of July and in the middle of August, giving more opportunities than ever for kids to join! To learn more about all the camps and download the official enrollment form, please visit our Current Nature Camps. We can’t wait to go exploring with you!
In Memory: Bill Kennedy
Programs like The Caterpillar truly depend on the generously donated time and talents of our volunteers. Everyone at Pacifica Garden and The Caterpillar would like to thank one of our greatest helpers, Bill Kennedy, who passed away last month. Bill was instrumental in making The Caterpillar what it is today. He built tons of circuit boards used in the learning stations, all of the wooden shelves and benches in the new Caterpillar trailer, many bird and bat cages, and countless other projects. We would like to thank Bill for all he did to make science education available to our schools and offer our thoughts and prayers to his family.
Pacifica on YouTube
If you’ll take a look at the little row of icons just to the right of the Pacifica Garden logo at the top of this page, you’ll notice a new addition: a YouTube button! Pacifica now has its very own YouTube channel! And even better: We have a brand new video to show on it! We’ve been hard at work for the last couple months creating a promotional video designed to explain and celebrate all of the amazing, diverse activities that go on in our organization. That video is now online and ready to view! Add a comment, share it with your friends, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for alerts on future uploads. We have some exciting new videos planned for the rest of the year, so check back often!
Pacifica on Google+ Local
Pacifica Garden just got a little easier to find! Our new page on Google+ Local will pop up whenever someone looks for us using Google properties such as Search or Maps. We will be updating our page regularly, so be sure to “follow” us for the most up-to-date content. Also, feel free to upload photos from your visits to Pacifica or write a review of your experiences here. We hope to hear from you soon!
Note: We feel this new page will better represent our company and serve our fans. As a result, we will be shutting down our previous Google+ page on Friday, April 12.
