SUMMER DISCOVERY BLOG 2017

Making Things

Kids like to do, make, play. They like real experiences. There’s lots of that around here in the summer. 

>> See News for more Summer Discovery stories.

MAKING LEGO CREATIONS

Campers made all kinds of Lego creations, including some that were shot down a zip line on the staircase.


MAKING GOALS

Soccer drills. Making goals is the object.

 


MAKING 3-D OBJECTS IN 3D PRINTING

Design objects on a computer. Render in plastic on a 3D printer. A fun summer challenge.


MAKING A MONSTER PARTY

Girls & boys sewed the placemats, napkins, napkin rings (above) and decorated the cups, made menus, all with a monster theme – their idea! They learned to iron, sew and cook.

They cut up fruit, made cupcakes and Rice Krispies treats, set the tables and served guests.

This monster was serving guests.

Play Ball!

FLAG FOOTBALL

We always have a big crowd for 7-on-7 Flag Football, a lot of boys, but girls, too. Kids of all ages like this camp, so we'll have a couple of games going at once–one on Falcon Field and another in The Big Backyard. Although it's non-tackle football, there's a lot of friendly competition in these games. Kids have a blast!

Snapshot

AFTERNOON AT THE DRIVE IN

The Upcycled Players manufactured their "cars" in the morning, and settled in for an afternoon drive-in movie with popcorn. They happen to be "parked" in a classroom that once was a stately living room. Think how many kids have played in the living room since this home was built in 1927. Part of the fun of Summer Discovery.
