Scales, Tails and Claws, July 25-29

Slimy fish scales, smooth reptile scales, soft bird scales… while many creatures have this characteristic, they can look, feel and function so differently. This week, campers will discover how the same structure works differently in the wild world of animals.

“Watermelon Magic” is unlike any other film. It’s a sweet combination of history and science and the first big-screen movie dedicated to one of our most basic human needs: healthy food. The public revels in this explosion of colors and almost wordless music. Weaving together documentary and narrative elements, “Watermelon Magic” chronicles a season on the family farm, as young Sylvie cultivates a plot of watermelons to sell at the market. How will she let go of her babies?
