I can't believe summer is almost here! Our trip to England is going to be shorter than we originally planned, so I'm scrambling to plan ways to keep my kids engaged and entertained -- and I'm not talking about planting them in front of the TV! I want their minds and bodies to stay busy. Fortunately it's not too late to enroll them in a few summer camps.
Our summer camp budget is small, so I don't want to choose any old camp. If I'm going to shell out my hard-earned money for it, it has to be a good camp, one that will give my kids an enjoyable learning experience. So I was certainly lucky to be selected by MomSelect to spread the word about the great summer day camps offered by Champions Science Adventures! They're giving The Pea a week of camp so she can try it out and I can report back to everyone what she did. The camps run throughout the summer and we'll enroll in one of the earlier (mid-June) sessions so I can post about her experiences and you'll still have time to enroll your child in a later session.
About Champions Science Adventures day camps
This year, Champions Science Adventures is running weekly science-themed summer day camps with four themes to choose from:
1) At the Mystery of the Pharaoh’s Treasure camp, kids will help to solve an Egyptian mystery by decoding hieroglyphics, digging up mummies from the sand and other fun activities.
2) The Go Wild camp will allow kids to investigate some amazing wildlife and plants. Check out this Go Wild video:
Cool, huh? Of course, they probably won't be getting up close and personal with hippos and crocodiles, but they will get to build binoculars and microscopes so they can go on a Mini-Beast Safari, and they will get to meet some live animals!
3) Gizmo’s Robot Factory lets kids design their own robots.
4) At the Space and Rocketry camp, kids will make their own Hydro-powered rocket, an altimeter to see how high their rocket goes, and more!
It all sounds like so much fun! I have no idea which one we are going to pick for The Pea to attend, but I'm sure any of those four will give her an amazing week of fun and discovery. As Champions says.....
Champions Science Adventures summer day camps focus on FUN and take science education beyond the classroom to spark a child’s interest in the world of science through exploration and discovery. Champions Science Adventures camps are designed to inspire curiosity about how the world works while instilling a love of learning about science through interactive, hands-on experiments and activities.
