CALIFORNIA STATE PARKS: In April, we began our summer partnership with California State Parks at the LA State Historical Park (aka Not a Cornfield). This is the same location where we do LA Decom. State Parks asked if we could help them with their Fam Camp program by providing activities for the kids to do. Our immediate reaction was a drum circle with dancing and hooping. They loved it. So for their two Fam Camp nights, members of the DEA (drum enforcement agency) brought several drums and a local teacher, Sara Jane, taught the kids how to participate in a drum circle. And those who did not want to drum did some fun dancing. This was a wonderful opportunity to share an activity we are passionate about with the kids ofEast LA.
