Get Ducks Day - July 27
What do ducks and driving have to do with each other?

*This production epitomizes what Camelot Academy commemorates every July 27 with
GET DUCKS DAY!
A Celebration of Learning by Doing
July 27 is a meaningful date for Camelot. It was the day that Camelot purchased a farm property in 2016, and the day the faculty decided to embark on the new adventure of trying a new schedule in 2017. Ms. Thelma dubbed it “Get Ducks Day” to commemorate the day she gave up on simply reading and researching about how to care for ducks and finally jumped in to “GET the DUCKS.”
This July 27, Mr. Scott will “jump in” and present a play based on a script he has been writing for 20 years. Based on some of his real-life experiences as a cab driver and chauffeur in New York City, the play chronicles father-son relationships through conversations taking place in a 1987 Lincoln Continental.
