After months of planning, the Lincoln City community rallied and put on an incredible two day camp to give Lincoln City students an engaging and enriching experience over the November break on the 20th and 21st. Assistant Principal, Rebecca Bostwick shared, “This year, we are thankful to live in the best community who loves and supports their kids!” For the camp, 146 K-12 kids registered for the two-day camp followed by a community dinner on Tuesday night.
Sessions ranged from Straw Rockets from the STEM Hub to Junior Crime Lab from Lincoln City Police Department to acting with Nathan Bush from OSU, native crafts presented by the Siletz Tribe, poetry, watercolor art, engineering boat building, other arts and crafts, math games and even basketball.
All presenters and supervisors were volunteers which included both school employees and local resident. Assistant Principal Boswick said “Our gratitude goes out to our awesome community partners OSU Extension, STEM hub, Meredith Lodging, Charlotte Lehto, Lincoln City Police Officer Logan, Siletz Tribe, Lincoln City Kiwanis, Nathan Bush, Shannon Hertz, Karen Van Poperin, Chinook Winds Resort, The Freschi’s, North Lincoln Fire Department, Sandie Tucker, an MidColumbia Busing.
We also thank Sodexo for providing fantastic learning sessions for our students, feeding them, transporting them and putting on a full Thanksgiving community dinner! And lastly, we had the wonderful volunteers to support our kids- thank you to the brave and tireless adults, Taft and Oceanlake staff and Administration and high school students who volunteered their vacation to supervise our little Tigers.”
