Episode 2: Camp Sweet

In this episode we speak to former Principal of Calgary Science School and creator of the Fort Steele History Lab, Mr. Ron Sweet. Ron talks about his work in outdoor education and his thoughts on technology and rekindling children’s relationship with the natural world. Ron is joined by his favourite companion, his guitar, and along with his grandson Aubrey, a grade 6 student at Connect recreate some of our favourite camp songs!
