Session 2: June 19-23 | Art is Life
Let inspiration flow from the world around you. Become a photographer and take pictures of your favorite places at camp, or make them come to life with your paintbrush. Let’s see how colorful you can make the world around you. Get inspired by art in Glen Vista Gallery and let your creativity fly at in the Butterfly Garden as you draw what you see.
Session 4: July 10-14 | Solar Power
Days are hot and bright so let’s put it to good use. Learn about Solar Power energy. Use the sun to make images on paper. Become a scientist and do experiments using the sun’s light and heat. Get closer to the sun with a hike to Raptor Ridge, cool off by getting wet on the big Slip N Slide, and rest under the trees at night.
Session 6: July 24-28 | Insect Impossible
I spy with my little eye, insects! Play games that mimic bugs’ super skills and go on a mission to find their “hideouts.” Get up close with live bugs and learn why insects would make the best secret agents on Earth. Create a bug hotel and test your skills by completing insect challenges. Are you bug enough?
Session 8: August 7-11 | H20 Overflow
Make waves! It’s time to stir up some fun during water week. Check out our streams, rivers and ponds then play water games and make water art. Go fishing at Source Pond and count how many snapping turtles you can find!
