La Cañada Boy Scout Troop 501 sent 19 scouts and eight adults to summer camp at the Orange County BSA Lost Valley camp in early August. All who attended camp had a great time. The weather was nearly ideal, with the days not too hot and the nights not too cold. In fact, everyone in the troop spent at least one night sleeping under the stars rather than in the tents, with almost everyone in the troop participating in the horseback overnight outing and more than half doing the astronomy overnight charting of the stars.

To many residents of the La Cañada-Pasadena area, Tom Sawyer Camp is a summer institution, and with good reason: The camp was established in 1926 and celebrates its 85th anniversary this year. “We have third-generation children attending, children whose parents and grandparents also attended the camp years ago. Not much has changed, we still have good old-fashioned fun - the only exception is that we now use seat belts and helmets, unlike decades ago,” said Executive Director Sarah Horner Fish.

Buff Buddies, an award-winning gym designed for kids to play in all year, hosts a summer camp that started in June and runs until the end of this month. The camp is unique because it's entirely flexible; kids can drop in for an hour, several hours, a day or the entire week. The longer a child stays at Buff Buddies, the more cost-effective it becomes. The kids' gym is open to children ages 5 and up, and because the kids stay active, younger children and older children play with their own age groups to keep the play safe and fair for all. David Cain founded Buff Buddies in 2004 with the intention of making exercise fun and engaging for children of all ages.
