8 Saturday Session 1 Continued Title Description Hosted By For Tie-Dye Gentle Yoga for Sharing Walking as a Spiritual Practice Magic Words-Explore the Poetic Arts Bring your white, 100% cotton t-shirts, socks, pillow cases, whathave-you to this fun, multi-generational workshop where you can learn the basic tie-dye spiral pattern or improvise with all the colors of the rainbow! Dyed items will be taken home in plastic bags where they can be washed out after 24 hours. If there is interest, you can try your hand at a chalice or heart design using a basic stitching technique. These dyes are permanent and will stain clothing if spilled. Using the Sivanda book and learning intensively at the Esalen Institute of Big Sur, California, Andrew forged a very personal Yoga routine that he practiced daily for years. In this session, we will warm-up, breath, sit and safely practice asanas together. We can then compare the session with your own experiences for better awareness of what works for you among the many possibilities. After a short spiritual discussion, we will explore the camp. Bring your walking shoes. Words, words, words. Everyday language has its limits. Much of what we know to be most important of all seems impossible to put into words. Mighty Wordsters know that language and the poetic arts - from the simplest, like repetition or rhyme, to the most complex - can work a very special magic. Even if we are not poets, we use many of these techniques in everyday speech. Our own words can lead us to places within us we almost didn t know about. And the magic words we read and make together can lead to a deep connection with self and others. Let s play with words, enjoy ourselves and maybe make a poem or two...

10 Saturday Session 2 Continued Title Description Hosted By For Introducing Clearness Gatherings We all face difficult, fundamental questions in life: should I move? Should I marry? Marry? Seek to become a parent? Change jobs (or even professions)? Retire? For centuries, Quakers have sought aid in answering such questions by calling four to six fellow members to ask open, honest questions to those confronting an important decision -- not to advise them, but to help them hear their own inner voice. We are now introducing that practice of Clearness Gatherings at All Souls. Brian Marshall Adults only Channeling Your Child s Yetzer Hara We will begin the workshop with a journaling exercise to reflect privately about some aspect of our lives in seeking greater clarity. We won't have time for a Clearness Gathering, but will describe the practice to help prepare those who wish to participate in a Clearness Gathering in the future. Yetzer what? We ll examine the Jewish idea of yetzer hara, the aggressive impulse in each of us which can lead to greed and even violence, but is also a source of animating energy. Jewish child psychologist, Wendy Mogel, has some suggestions for helping parents deal effectively with this part of their child s personality. We ll try a reframing exercise and examine ways we as parents can more effectively channel this energy rather than continually battling against and restricting it.

14 Suggested lunch places for Sunday Camp Tockwogh will not provide lunch this year. Instead, invite some friends to join you at a restaurant. Below are some suggested locations The Fish Whistle in Chestertown. On the Chester River at 98 Cannon Street. See the map to the right. Waterman s Crab House in Rock Hall. Intentionally miss the turn-off to Chestertown, and blissfully continue down rural Route 298, and then Route 20, until you reach the small town of Rock Hall. See the map to the left. All locals love this restaurant. Optional Outing: Afterwards, intrepid folks can continue to Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge for hiking and bird-watching. More About Kent County, Maryland Chestertown Chestertown is the last major town on the way to Camp Tockwogh, about 12 miles or 25 minutes away. If you want to stay off-site, check out the Chestertown lodging options (and book them as early as possible before you register for the Weekend on the Bay) at: Here are some Chestertown recommendations, courtesy of Jillian Gibson, who grew up there: Favorite place for coffee: Play it Again, Sam's on Cross Street in the center of town has great coffee and muffins. It also pours and sells wine for those so interested. Rita's on Washington Avenue near the college is good for ice cream and other sweets. O'Connor's Pub which is on the northern end of High Street (near the intersection of Route 20 and 291) is a decent Irish-style pub with yummy pub fare. I've not been to Brooks Tavern, which is on the northern end of High Street, but I understand it's decent - closed on Sundays. Blue Heron - a lovely restaurant on Cannon Street just off Cross in the center of town. Closed on Sundays - very nice, excellent food. Slightly more upscale evening out Weekend on the Bay Program FINAL May 29, 2013 Page 14 of 17

15 Imperial Hotel - excellent restaurant - the most upscale in town, I believe. It's open 7 days a week. Reservations a must. Expensive for Chestertown. Village Bakery and Cafe is in the shopping center on the north end of town, close to the Worton Road turnoff that takes you to Tockwogh. Good food for breakfast or lunch. Open 7 days a week. Lockbriar Farms ( is at Worton Road. It s directly on the way to Camp Tockwogh, after you pass through Chestertown, just after you turn off Route 213 and turn onto Route 297 (Worton Road). Chances are good you might see some other ASC folks at Lockbriar Farms for Strawberry-Picking especially on the way to camp (on Friday afternoon) or after services on Sunday. This farm also has cherries, and if we re lucky, they may have some early-season blueberries. Rock Hall In Rock Hall (24 miles / 40 minutes south-east of Camp Tockwogh, or 12 miles / 22 minutes east of Chestertown) the crabs at Waterman's are excellent. Rock Hall is also in Kent County, but it's a different community all to itself. Go to: And south of Rock Hall is the Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge, with nature trails, bird-watching, canoeing, and room for biking. Betterton The Camp Tockwogh beach is rocky, not sandy and Camp Tockwogh staff will not let you swim in the Chesapeake Bay. (Insurance reasons, nuff said.) But just five miles east of Camp Tockwogh is the tiny hamlet of Betterton. They have a good sandy beach (with lifeguards), and they allow swimming in the Chesapeake Bay. There s at least one small restaurant in town Weekend on the Bay Program FINAL May 29, 2013 Page 15 of 17

16 How to Get to Camp Tockwogh The Camp Tockwogh address is: Still Pond Neck Road Worton MD From Washington DC, take US-50 east to Annapolis.
