Not your American Summer Camp

Dear Diary,

Here at Jouvence, the main inhabitants during the week are young tween-ish or younger kids led around by their eclectic band of adult leaders.

Why just today I saw one holding a kid's hand in one hand and playing an accordion with the other while singing in French.  Some kids in front of him were sort of skip-jumping wildly, enthusiastically and singing along.  The leader was just missing a beret and a cigarette to keep it from being too French!

Another time, me  and some others were playing volleyball when a bunch of kids showed up with adults in fluffy, enormous hats and various brightly colored clothes.  They rolled in, started a fire, and sang songs.  It was all disorganized and frolicky; like they just let the kids play. Lorenzo whistled "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands" and all the kids clapped and started singing, giggling.  So fun! It looked a lot more fun than the American camps I've been to.

Ok, back inside to listen to some more physics.
