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!
