Today is the kids last day of school and the day I start to wonder how I'm going to keep up with them through out the summer! Kids are just like little energizer bunnies, aren't they? They can just keep going and going...... Now that my kids are getting a bit older I have started to think about camps - something not only to keep them busy, but also have fun and keep the learning going through out the summer. Champions Science Adventures programs and summer camps focus on taking science education beyond the classroom to spark a child's interest in the world of science through exploration and discovery. Science Adventure day camps are available for students ages 5 to 12 years throughout the summer, at participating recreation facilities, parks, and schools nationwide.
This year, two new exciting camps have been added, including: Mystery of the Pharaoh’s Treasure and Go Wild! In these camps, children help to solve an Egyptian mystery and investigate amazing wildlife and plants. Plus, two popular camps – Gizmo’s Robot Factory and Space and Rocketry – return. As you probably know from my previous posts - that I am a firm believer in hands on learning and that children will always learn more as well as taken in more while they are having fun! Even at my age, I can admit it can be hard to sit in a room and just listen to someone talk or try to teach me something through lecture. Let me get my hands on it and I can pick it up so much more quickly! I think that is one reason I love getting my kids out and doing things, seeing all that our planet has to offer.Each camp is one-week long with half-day and full-day options. Parents can enroll online at www.scienceadventures.com and have the option to register their children for all four camps, or just one program. Camp program fees and schedules vary by location.
Last year I put my kids in the local recreation department's day camp - and what a mistake! I think I pulled them out the same week and asked for my money back. There was very little supervision, no activities and kids were allowed to just freely run the park all day. This is something more like I was looking for - more structure, fun, learning and something the kids would totally love!!
