Come along and step through the magic CLH doors  as we experience Girl Scouting and more  through the years. . If you listen closely you may even hear some Ragtime music on Wacky Wed. See that the fashion was just a hint of what was to come. From the Titanic to the first woman detective in the U.S. to the founding of Girl Scouts it was a time of change locally and globally.

June 28-July 2, 2021 |  Hooray for the RED, White and Brave Woman of Yesteryear 

We know the stories of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington. We even know of the imagination and sewing skills of Betsy Ross but what about others that helped win a nation? This 4th of July week we shall explore the unsung or rarely mentioned heroes and heroines of the Revolution that changed the world.

July 12-16, 2021 | Japan, an Olympic Land 

The Summer Games of 1964 were the first to be staged in Asia and, as in 2021, Tokyo was the host city. In the concept of reduce, reuse, recycle the 2021 games will be using some of the original sites – updated of course to today’s needs. Japan is also a land of volcanoes, tsunami’s, and earthquakes. Together we shall make the CLH field shake with races as we learn what makes the Earth’s crust shake and change as land is created or consumed.
