Dave’s Delightfully Daring Wooded Works of Wonder is a summer version of the workshop series.  While we may touch on elements of writing covered in my other workshops, presentations and stories will generally be original from another session you may have attended. (We’ve had several three-peat kids in various sessions.)   Think baseball practice…  major league ballplayers are still taking batting practice and ground balls after 20 years.
    Our summer sessions boast a more intensive, compact schedule; a woodsy setting; and a healthy dollop of forest adventure added to our mix of writing, storytelling, and mentoring.  The hikes and explores provide healthy inspiration to the creative process… and the Redwoods are a magical place this time of year. 
    Huddart Park provides Peninsula and East Bay dwellers the woodsy experience with less driving.  Rancho San Antonio in Los Altos is a magnificent access to nature for the south bay folks. 
    Huddart was a bit of a hike for south bay families so this year we are holding a session at Rancho San Antonio, the wonderful Open Space facility off 280 in Los Altos, and one in stunning Huddart Park.  In the past some of you have been unable to attend due to work and drop-off problems. So this summer, one session at each location will be scheduled as full day (9-4) romps.   We gather and end at “base camp”,  with improv games, brainstorming and several hop-skips in between, so we will feather it all together.

    In addition to the daily sessions, the fee covers online feedback on participants’ stories and audio production of our collaborative “Bill” story.  Listen to some of these elsewhere on the site.  They are awesome.
    Oh yes… the summer sessions are especially memorable when attended with a friend or two.  Many new friendships are, of course, forged during the week. But if your child has a special like-minded pal, the experience is special.  Two summers ago, a bunch of friends took over an entire session and we had a blast.
