New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 22, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 8A — Herald-Zeitung — Friday, April 22, 2005 Heritage Society takes history program directly to schoolchildren From staff reports The Heritage Society of New Braunfels decided to do things a little different this year. As usual, the society will host the Kindermasken Parade and Folkfest this weekend, hut a new feature will take New Braunfels history directly to schoolchildren. Carl Druebert, the project director for the I tentage Society, explained that the organization was looking for a way to interest more children about the history of New Braunfels. The I leritage Society operates the Heritage Village at 1370 Church I Iii! Drive. Situated on the 10-acre site are buildings and the museum that highlight the history of New Braunfels. Folkfest attracts hundreds of youngsters to the I leritage Village each year but most attend to take part in the parade and other fun activities. In an effort to have a greater educational impact, Druebert joined with the New Braunfels Independent School District for a program called “Touch Your Heritage.” The program exposed fourth- and fifth-graders to the history of New Braunfels while helping meet state requirements. The areas of focus include transportation, Lions offer summer camp to children with disabilities Conmtributed photo Students from Memorial Intermediate look over a display during a special trip the New Braunfels Heritage Village. Summer camp — a place for children to be outdoors, swim, ride horses, canoe, camp under the stars and try new things. Summer camp has long been a place for children to make friends, gain self confidence, get along with others and have fun. Thanks to the Lions Clubs of Texas, children with physical disabilities and diabetes can share in the joys of these life experiences This summer, Texas children with physical disabilities (between the ages of 7 and 16) will be able to choose from six one-week sessions of camp or a 3-day day camp. Interested children should have some self-help skills in the areas of dressing, eating, toileting and bathing. Daily camp activities include swim-ming, canoeing, arts and crafts, field sports, fishing and camping under the stars. The week’s activities conclude with a special awards ceremony. The Texas Lions Camp also provides summer sessions specifically designed for children with type I diabetes (ages 8 to 15). In addition to exciting and challenging recreational activities, a medical team joins the camp staff to teach campers about their diabetes. Individualized attention in health care encourages control of diabetes while children learn to eat properly, monitor their blood sugar and give their own insulin injections. “Diabetic children face a challenge to take proper care of themselves and take an active role in controlling their disease. “Our goal is to assist in the learning skills to meet their own needs,” said Stephen Mabry, executive director. Parents also participate in instruction so that they can support their child’s new skills after camp is over. For more than 50 years, the Texas Lions Camp has provided more than 50,000 chih dren with physical disabilities and diabetes opportunities for recreational and learning experiences. The camp is a nonprofit organization, funded by Lions Clubs and private donations. Children attend the camp at no cost to themselves or their families. Further information and camper applications may be obtained by contacting a local Lions Club in New Braunfels or the Texas Lions Camp at P. O. Box 290247, Kerrville, 78029-0247, (830) 896-8500 V/TDD.

The program allowed the schoolchildren to have a hands-on learning experience. Last week, students from Karen Silva’s and Pam Smart’s classes at Memorial Intermediate visited the Heritage Village, looked around the buildings on the site and documented the historical significance in the lives of early settlers in the city. Museum docents were on hand to explain each building to the students. The students will follow up Saturday during Folkfest when they can actually do some things the early settlers did. Some of the projects at Folkfest include candle making, pottery, butter churning, loom weaving, corn grinding and milking cows and goats. Druebert said because it was the first year of the project with schools, the I leritage Society intentionally started small. But next year, the group hopes to invite more NBISD schools and some Comal ISI) schools to participate.
