PHOTOGRAPHY: Tuesdays, June 15th through June 29th, 3 to 5 pm
Limited to 15 mentees
RSVP no later than Wednesday, June 9th at 5 PM!
1st session: Alameda Park (Kid's World)
2nd and 3rd sessions: CADA offices

These are new, but I’m excited about giving the kids the chance to do this! 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.

SOLSTICE PARADE MASK MAKING: Wednesday, June 16th, 5:30 to 7 pm
CADA • 2nd Floor • Conference Room 2
232 E. Canon Perdido St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101
RSVP by Friday, June 11th @ 5 pm!

Join us for an evening of craftiness as we make masks to celebrate the theme of the Solstice festival this year: Carnival! We will supply all materials, from the masks to feathers, glitter, paint, stickers, jewels, etc.

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 allows!

SUMMER SOLSTICE PARADE: Saturday, June 26th, 12 noon
RSVP by Thursday, June 24th @ 5 pm
Wear your masks, costume jewelry, and bright colors as we head to State street to join in the festivities to watch the Summer Solstice Parade! I think we’ll try and watch on Micheltorena, towards the end of the parade route, then head over to Alameda Park to join in on the rest of the fun! For more details about the festival, see: www.solsticeparade.com

Don’t forget about the essay writing contest for the Forester’s game!
Topic: Why do YOU deserve to throw the first pitch at the SB Forester’s game? Submissions must be postmarked no later than Monday, June 21st in order to be considered. Entries can also be submitted by fax to (805) 963-1433, or by email to either jleeATcadasbDOTorg or tsegoviaATcadasbDOTorg. If faxing, please include a cover sheet.
