Dear Parents and Campers,

We’re here to announce that Summer Camp is happening! These past few months have affected us in more ways than we ever could have imagined. Kids have been indoors for months, and are longing for summer camps where they can connect with friends, play in the open air, and have new adventures.

Under normal circumstances, going to camp requires significant preparation — both from our staff and families. In this new world, it takes even more time to consider the many precautions for the safety and well-being of everyone involved. All of us here at Trackers Earth have spent these past few months working around the clock to anticipate what safe summer camp will look like this year. As our state releases new guidelines, this thoughtful analysis has proven to be valuable. We are grateful for your continued patience and understanding with our process.

What’s Next?

Re-opening timelines vary by state, region, and county. Colorado released their official guidelines for day camps on Monday, June 1st. We review each area’s guidelines and regulations the minute they come in. During this time, we’ve kept our full-time staff on board so that we can quickly shift and evolve our plan. We’re continually brainstorming as a team, meeting with health authorities and camp organizations, and doing all we can to prepare. One thing is for sure: we will adapt and continue to create safe ways to provide engaging, educational — and fun! —  camp experiences, no matter what.

While we continue to adapt our programs, here’s what we know so far:

Day Camps will continue according to the Colorado Department of Health & Environment as well as the Colorado Office of Early Childhood.

  • Our pick up and drop off location has moved a half mile north of our original location to: Kirk of Bonnie Brae United Church of Christ – 1201 S. Steele St Denver, CO 80210. We will email families additional information on best practices for parking and where to enter the facility in a way that encourages safe distancing and improves overall traffic flow.
  • We plan to have small, stable groups of the same kids for our day camps – working under essential state guidelines.
  • Each group will remain together throughout the day and for the entirety of the camp week. Campers will space themselves much as possible, which is much easier outside!
  • We will provide hand sanitizer and hand washing stations, working to make sure each camper and staff uses them often throughout the day.
  • We ask parents to take their child’s temperature every morning. If your child has any symptoms of being sick, please stay home for the safety of everyone. Trackers will credit you for that time. We are also planning an efficient and in-depth daily health check for staff and students at drop-off each day.
  • Check-in and check-out times may be staggered. This may result in minor shifts in camp times. To follow Colorado Department of Health & Environment guidelines to maintain stable groups for our campers, we do not plan on currently offering after camp. If your family already pre registered for After Camp, we will be placing a credit on your Trackers account towards a future program. If that does not work for you, please reply to this email and our team can assist with other options.
  • At this time, our buses will be limited to a stable cohort to ensure social distancing. That means Trackers will use more vehicles and also adjust which programs and the number of days we transport for. The positive result, less time on buses and more time for activities. To help us limit transport, parents have the option to drop off and pick up their campers directly to and from our green spaces. Most are within 25 minutes of Washington Park. If this option is possible for your family, please let us know via email at mary@trackersearth.com.
  • To spread out check-in, we may add more pick-up and drop-off locations near our primary drop-off areas. We will notify you of updated locations as we secure them.

What Else Are We Exploring? 

We are considering neighborhood camps that start at 9 AM and We have a goal of offering a limited scholarship tuition and programs for children of essential workers in need of financial assistance.

Trackers Spark also offers online classes for those continuing to stay home. These are interactive, small group webinars with a familiar guide and tons of activities. This is a chance for kids to connect with other kids in classes from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Join Captain Nick in recovering the lost idol. Quest with the Realms of Cascadia, where you create your character to adventure as an elf, wizard or more. There’s even online classes for adults.

Connection & Community

Trackers is about community and personal connection. This is not a time for one-size-fits-all thinking. It is a time for personal action and responsibility. We will work with each of you to make sure your kids have the best possible camp experience this summer. During the next several weeks, our teams will reach out personally to parents signed up for camp. This is our quest to better understand your particular needs, and answer any questions you might have.

Please, if you have urgent specific needs for your children and circumstances (ie., essential workers, specific health concerns, etc.) feel free to contact us as well. Personal connection is part of our core values, and we will do our best to find personal solutions for those who need them. Again, we appreciate your patience and understanding through this process.

PLEASE SEE OUR Q&A HERE

Connecting kids to nature in inspiring ways is central to our mission. We are an organization that exists to support kids and parents and provide real and awesome camp experiences. Everyone at Trackers remembers what it’s like to be a kid. We look forward to helping your kids learn and build lasting memories – while giving parents a break, too.

If your situation has changed, we hope that you can still support Trackers by accepting a future camp credit that will be good through 2022. If a credit does not work for you, please contact us, and we will do our best to help your individual needs.

We thank you for your trust in Trackers and look forward to speaking with each of you soon. Please stay healthy and safe, and we can’t wait to see you at camp!

See you in the forest,
Molly & Tony Deis

Summer Camp Update

Dear Parents and Campers,

We reviewed each area’s guidelines and regulations the minute they came in. We’re continually brainstorming as a team, meeting with health authorities and camp organizations, and doing all we can to prepare. One thing is for sure: we will adapt and continue to create safe ways to provide engaging, educational — and fun! —  camp experiences, no matter what.

While we continue to adapt our programs, here’s what we know so far:

Location Change: In an effort to follow Department of Health guidance, we are moving our drop off location for all of our Bay Area programs to the Camp Herms Scouts property, which we have exclusive use of for the summer. We are reaching out to the parents affected to communicate the change, as well as answer any questions you might have.

Overnight Camps Due to the health guidelines in place, we will not be able to hold the Leadership in Training program. We are working with each family to figure out the next best steps for them with us in this program.

Day Camps will continue according to Contra Costa County Health Authority guidelines:

  • We plan to have small, stable groups of the same kids for our day camps – working under essential state guidelines.
  • Each group will remain together throughout the day and for the entirety of the camp week. Campers will space themselves as much as possible, which is much easier outside!

We are also planning an efficient and in-depth daily health check for staff and students at drop-off each day.
  • We ask that campers bring masks to wear. They will be asked to wear masks in situations where social distancing is not possible and on vehicles, as well as maintain 6 feet of space between themselves and other campers whenever possible, not limited to when directed by a staff member.
  • Check-in and check-out times may be staggered. This may result in minor shifts in camp times.
  • Check-in and check-out times may be staggered. This may result in minor shifts in camp times. To follow Oregon Health Authority guidelines to maintain stable groups for our campers, we do not plan on currently offering after camp.

What Else Are We Exploring? 

We are considering neighborhood camps that start at 9 AM and end at 2:30 PM. In Neighborhood Summer Camp, kids would be led by teachers on safe adventures using walking friendly paths and areas. We are also exploring family and friends’ camps and even Camp Shares where a Trackers Teacher comes to your home for camp with a group of siblings and kids you choose. Finally, we have a goal of offering a limited scholarship tuition and programs for children of essential workers in need of financial assistance.

Trackers Spark also offers online classes for those continuing to stay home. These are interactive, small group webinars with a familiar guide and tons of activities. This is a chance for kids to connect with other kids in classes from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Join Captain Nick in recovering the lost idol.

Springtime and dandelions go hand in hand. Especially where we live in the foothills of the western Cascades in Oregon. Dandelions are among our first spring flowers. We’ve had lots of fun making these videos as a family and are excited to share the final recipe with you.

Dandelion Donut Recipe

Also called dandelion fritters this recipe calls for dandelion flower heads.

*makes about 20 donuts *

Pick about 20 dandelion flower heads, careful to avoid the stem and remove as much of the bitter green underside, or bracts, as you can.Ready 1/2 inch vegetable oil in a pan on medium-low heat. To make the batter. We used:

1 cup whole wheat flour (any flour will do)
1 tsp sugar (or equivalent sweetener)
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk (+ a little extra as needed. Any kind of milk will do)

Stir until the batter is not lumpy, but smooth. Add additional milk as needed to achieve desired texture. Coat entire dandelion flower with batter and drop into the hot oil. Be careful around the hot oil & pan. Fry until golden brown, flipping over as needed. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil. Eat & Enjoy!

We all are getting quite a bit of special family time these days. Moms (and all parents) now do work, school, and play! The “new norm” of leisure includes 10 minutes of uninterrupted: shower, cooking, sleep, thought, or the online multi-user dungeon (MUD) that I play.

I’m experiencing an interesting side-effect with my patience level. The daily affirmations said under my breath seem to be helping. Along with lowering my standards.😉I find myself getting less frustrated about things. Tony cooked me breakfast this morning. Good for him.

Counting to 10 goes both ways. To buffer my reactions to my kids or for getting them to do a thing. This week the girls cut sleeves off their dresses to make them more “summer-ready” in the hot weather. My sweet-toothed child has been hoarding cups of sugar around the house. The youngest hides whenever it’s time for chores.

It’s all part of being a parent. From one mom to other parents, Happy Parent’s Day. I hope we’re hanging in and I’m looking to the light beyond this—as long the kids get outside the house. Take the day to enjoy a little “new norm” and play with your wonderful and sometimes aggravating loved ones.😸

Surprise! I’ve been working from home… along with more than half the world. You know who else has been working from home? My three kids. Non-stop. Unrelenting… Help me!

The Sharpie graffiti on the fireplace was interesting, but not cohesive with the brand. Marketing has been unable to take it down (Tony scrubbed for hours). During their monthly review, I let them know watching Phineas & Ferb was not a relevant performance metric. I’ve worked to teach my kids better self-management, empowering them to take ownership of their work. But it’s unprofessional to share an office and still be in your pajamas by noon, playing the Harry Potter soundtrack without coworker consent, or yelling for breakfast when they could email. Plus, all attempts to use the cat as a stapler must stop! Just because I’m their manager (er… parent), I should not need to schedule meetings and organize work priorities for them.

It is an HR nightmare with no concept of personal boundaries. One sits right next me to belch the alphabet while I’m on a spreadsheet. Another raids the office refrigerator, using an entire stick of butter marked with my name—just for one bowl of popcorn. I’ve been in a staff Zoom meeting when someone crawls into my lap to snuggle. Maxine has been with us four years, she should have read the policy manual. No matter how often I file a complaint, Human Resources is ineffective with my kids. I reported it to our COO and she said, “I have a teenager, get over it.”

You can often fix performance issues by outsourcing to the Grandparent’s office. But there is currently a freeze on internships. At this time, recruiting for new children is not an option as in-person interviews are a must. On rare occasion, I regret offering room and board as part of the benefits package. Yet, in all honesty, this goes beyond overseeing their academic experience, it is an opportunity to guide them in real world adulting.

I know my real job to help our kids become collaborators for the future of our family and the wider community we serve. With patience and a little bit more hands-on and heart-felt management, I have seen gradual performance improvements such as: washing dishes, feeding the donkeys, and mocking up graphic designs on whiteboards instead of the masonry. Maybe one day, in their career as professional humans, they can be promoted to greater responsibility. And even, we can only hope, understand the cat is not a stapler.

From Molly, Trackers Founder & Mom

Like most families, at the Trackers Homestead we take it one week at a time. Our team is still hard at work creating online classes (below for cool news) and preparing for summer.

It’s ironic, we’re used to homeschooling, but we’ve taken it easy the past couple weeks. Tony and I even got the kids outside to make ↓ this video

Video Whittle Kids – Woodcarving

Click on thumbnail to watch it! My kids, Robin (9 years) and Maxine (4 years), teach the safety basics for whittling with knives. I highly recommend watching it with your kids. These two are cute and informative, but my opinion may be skewed.

If you liked it, check out our upcoming online classes that teach woodcarving to parents and kids. Let’s get to the big news! Trackers Online is now…

Trackers Spark!

Our online camps and classes have grown. So we’re giving them a new home and a new name. Trackers Spark lights the fire. It has “channels” that feature your favorite Trackers Guides, skills and fun.

Join Captain Nick on his globetrotting adventures. Next week, in Captain Nick: Sky Pirates, Nick and kids take to the air to stop the Captain Zeppelin’s flying bandits. Plus, in Captain Nick: Kingdom of Cats, the Contessa turns our adventurers into feline friends. It’s up to “Catnip” Nick and kids to prevent an aPAWcolypse!

Wilders Home is bringing back Home Ec. Kids join Cowboy Sam to cook Dandelion Donuts. Or take part in a fun food show style cook off with found kitchen ingredients.

Finally, Wizards Academy is taking new students. Practice wand craft, search for mythic beasts, and help the school of magic fight the Realm of the Dark Arts.

Trackers Spark is where you now find our live, small group interactive webinars. Rovers for young kids. Rangers with outdoor skills. Earth Ninjas with martial arts every morning. Scroll below for every Spark channel…

Kids can learn new skills or adventure through a fantastical Realm. With Trackers Spark, Trackers Earth is doing what we do best. We inspire kids everywhere, every week, to find connection and community!

See You On The Spark,

From Molly Deis, Founder

I wanted to say thank you to our families for the overwhelming support for Trackers Online. The number of students doubled in just one week. Our number of classes did the same! It’s been wonderful to hear how kids are having fun connecting with teachers and friends in our online camps. There are a few things that are new for next week.

Full-Time Forest School
(now online)

Along with contributing to our part-time Backyard Classroom, our full-time Forest School is open to new students for the remainder of the term and for Fall 2020. What makes our Forest School work fantastically in the forest is also extremely valuable in our online interactive classroom. We maintain powerfully low ratios for every class (1:12 for our oldest grade, lower for younger). It’s a way for our students learning at home to get personalized instruction in academics and connection to nature (now in their own backyard). If you want to learn more about Forest School’s strength in small class sizes for both online and outdoor learning, respond to this email and I’ll personally get back to you.

Online Camps – Week Pass

For kids who want a consistent adventure every day, we now offer a Week Pass where you can sign up for one channel all week. If you want Captain Nick for five days, you can do that! If your kid needs a movement workout every morning, that’s there as well.

NEW Camps!

We have new online camps for next week. Enroll in the Wizards Academy to study Herbology and Mythic Beasts. Quest the Realms of Elves & Dragons for epic adventures. Learn to Fish in your living room. Cook dandelion donuts with Cowboy Sam. Or get young kids moving in Rovers Recess!

Our new WildLIVE! Rangers Adventures feature a Rangers Guide live and solo adventuring in our private wilderness park. Kids help create the camp as their Guide demonstrates skills such as fire or finds real animal tracks to follow. Finally, young campers (ages 4-6) can join me for FarmLIVE! Meet the Animals to greet donkeys, goats, chickens and more.

I so greatly appreciate our Trackers Community. This is a time where we come together to support one another and find our human and natural connection. Watch our Facebook and Instagram pages for details and have a sunny weekend.

Spring is upon us and it is the perfect time to get outside for plant ID and harvesting seasonal greens. One of my favorite things to do when plants start unfurling leaves and blossoms bloom is to go on wild wanders with my kids for forest browsing. Some of our favorites are…

Dandelion Some see this as a weed, I see this as the base for my salads. We also pick the flowers, dip them in pancake batter sweetened with honey and fry them up for what my kids call Dandelion Donuts.

Stinging Nettle Yes it stings when it’s fresh, but after steaming, boiling or frying, you have a plant with more flavor than spinach. We use bread crumbs, eggs, garlic and chopped nettle to make Nettle Patties we fry on the stovetop or bake in the oven.

Oregon Oxalis This plant is a tasty trailside nibble. It’s got a tart taste to it, a little bit like a green apple. My kids eat it fresh while playing in the woods.

Remember, when harvesting any wild plant its important to get a good field guide to properly identify the species as some plants have toxic lookalikes. Here are a few guides we like to help learn proper identification skills:

All Locations for Parents

By Molly Deis, Founder

We’ve come a long way since our first eclectic location directly across from Oaks Bottom Park. I often have conversations with many parents who don’t realize there’s a Trackers in their neighborhood.
