The KASPER summer camp has come to a close; this year, campers learned to fish, fine-tuned their art skills and mastered their gardening skills.

“It was fantastic, we had a really great year,” KASPER director Molly Moncrief said. “A lot of great kids came out, a lot of good support from the community. I feel that overall we had a good program for the fifth year. I was proud to be a director.”

KASPER is the Kids’ After School Program of Education and Recreation. It is a nonprofit organization that provides a summer day camp for Brookings-Harbor students in grades one through six, according to a handout on the organization.

First through third-graders listened to the adventures of Captain Book, 10-year-old Roger, a lion and a mouse during a puppet show Tuesday at the Chetco Community Library. 

In the story, which is loosely based on Aesop’s Fables, Roger embarks on a voyage with Captain Book. The Captain tells him the story of a lion and a mouse. 

In the Captain’s tale, a timid mouse runs into an overconfident lion who gets caught in a net and learns that even someone like a small mouse can help a big lion get out of trouble.
