June 2018 Enjoy—Sound Check
● By Enjoy Magazine
TIME FOR A SOUND CHECK – crickets chirping, the crack of a baseball bat, the giggles of children splashing in the pool out back? Yes, it’s summer time in the beautiful North State. Are you ready for some outdoor exploration?
For the kids in your life, Volcano Adventure Camp promises unplugged time in lovely Lassen Volcanic National Park. Visitors learn how to use compasses, tackle camp chores, discover fun facts about volcanoes, swim in mountain lakes and go on hikes. What a way to explore one of the North State’s treasures!
Trinity County prides itself on a rich history, and a piece of it will be honored with a celebration of the 50th anniversary of both Weaverville’s J.J. “Jake” Jackson Museum and the Highland Art Center. After years of construction, the road up to the ‘Ville is smoother and straighter than ever – take a little road trip and immerse yourself in some local history.
Up north, Mount Shasta is branding itself as an official “Trail Town” under the auspices of the Pacific Crest Trail Association – and a gala is planned in July to celebrate. Supporters hope to spotlight the region’s scenic trails and lure more travelers to the area.
If you find yourself in Woodland this summer, consider carving out some time to check out Velocity Island Park. A cable suspended above the water pulls wakeboarders around the park’s lake, and it’s earned rave reviews from amateurs and pros alike.
June is the month when we honor the wonderful dads in our lives, and we’ll tell you a story about one very special father-son duo – Matt and JC Hunsaker, local football coaches who took Shasta High’s varsity football team all the way to the state championship.
We’ll also share some special ways to show Dad how much you care, from asking about his family history to taking him on a fishing trip. If the special guy in your life is a camping fan, we’re sharing some of our favorite spots to pitch a tent in the North State.
And of course, the folks at Enjoy the Store stand ready to help you select the perfect gifts and box them up in a Dad-approved crate for you.
Happy summer, and Enjoy Northern California Living.
The Enjoy Team
