July 10: Even Bats Can Have Fun!

Summer is the time for fun, what are some activities or some places that you go to in the summer to have fun? Did you ever wonder what animals do for fun, how about bats? Come 'hang' out this week, were we will become bats and learn how to have fun on summer nights.

 

July 17: Making Summer Reading Fun.     

Lets read about some animals this week, but before we do that we need something to keep our place. We will make a page peeker bookmark that will help us always find our place while reading this summer.

 

July 24: Birds Ahoy!

            Summer is the perfect time to bird watch, but how might you ask can we attract birds to watch? This week we will be making birdfeeders that we can set up in our own backyard so we can bird watch any day! We might even get to see some during camp!

 

July 31: Lets start a garden!

            Our summer camp starts out with all things green! We will learn about how gardens work and what you need to do to make them grow and flourish. We will even start our own seedlings that you can take home and start your own garden.

Aug 21: When Veggie Monsters Attack!

            Lets turn everyday household items into our very own tube monsters or veggie friends.  You can decide if there are veggie monsters out there and can turn your favorite fruit or vegetable into something fun.  We will create these and learn about fruits and vegetables of the rainbow this week at summer camp.

 

Aug. 28:  Summer's Ending But the Fun Does Not!

            Even though this is the last week of camp this does not mean the end of fun.  We will make our very own letters and envelopes that you can send to your principal, state senator, or even the Whole Kids Foundation to ask for your very own garden or salad bar in your school.  Whatever you write we will make sure your letter gets mailed and to the proper person!
