“Thanks so much for finding a way to pull off Sees the Day amid such remarkable circumstances. Octavia learned more than ever from you about how to find and remain herself during extraordinary times”.

“Sees the Day is a relaxed outdoor day camp with a focus on science, nature, earth stewardship, empathy and compassion geared to elementary school aged kids (K-5). Kids spend the day in Tilden Park (Lake Anza region) doing things like team building activities and cooperative games, hiking, storytelling, fairy house and fort building, and imaginative play in the small redwood grove. Guest speakers come each week with themes on conservation, creativity, music, animals, and nature awareness. Kids of mixed ages play together, in a small, well-supervised camp! The key to the camp success is the camp founder, educator, and director Kirk Cooper, who is present, playing, teaching, and hanging out with the kids with years of experience and dedication to children. It is kind of like the best secret summer camp in Berkeley!”
