PHOTOGRAPHY: Tuesday, June 15th
Alameda Park, Kids World
Micheltorena between Garden & Santa Barbara St.
Each of the kids will be getting their own camera (a disposable) and we will also develop the film for them and provide digital copies of their pictures on their very own DVD.
The first session will be our photographer describing basic photography terms and talking about what it means to actually do intentional photography. She will also be bringing her digital camera and taking shots and showing the kids what she means and will encourage them to take particular pictures as well. The kids can create their own themes and take pictures. The kids may go through their whole film roll by the end of the session, in which case I will take them and get them developed by the following Tuesday. Once the pictures are developed, we will meet at the CADA office to look through the pictures and our photographer will go around and pick out some good things about the shots, or how to make them better the next time around. Then the kids can make their own scrapbook out of their pictures during the following session. It should be fun times.
The Mentor Program will be supplying all materials for the pictures and scrapbooking, including an album that they can decorate, jewels, stickers, feathers, paper, etc. so the mentees can make each page their very own!
That being said, the mentee should be able to attend all 3 sessions. If their mentor cannot come, they are welcome to attend with their parent or guardian.
If you want to bring your digital camera, or if the kids have their own digital, that is fine too.

HIKE – Rattlesnake Trail: Friday, June 18th, 3:30 to 5 pm
RSVP by Thursday, June 17th @ 5 pm!
We’ll be embarking on our first hike up Rattlesnake Trail. This trail doesn't necessarily
mean you will encounter a rattlesnake! That is just the name of the canyon. One
canyon over from Tunnel Trail, this hike is also within 15 minutes of downtown. There
is almost always plenty of water in the creek, and the trail is always shady, making
this the most popular trail in Santa Barbara. It is also relatively easy compared to just
about all the other trails in the area. It is well-maintained, gentle, and there are no
mountain bikes allowed. It’s 3.5 miles round trip, but we’ll only hike as far as time
