Camp Sacajawea Day Camp
Camp Theme: Camp Maker Space
Building on the current Maker Movement that has a strong emphasis on learning-by-doing in a social environment, Camp Sacajawea will transform into an outdoor Maker Space! Your camper will will be immersed in stations of creativity, tinkering, and making. Campers will rotate through various maker stations daily that will engage them in art and design, science, problem solving, and the endless possibilities of their own imaginations. In addition to daily maker tasks, campers will enjoy the many wonderful amenities at Camp Sacajawea such as "The Dot" splash pad, archery, hiking, and games! The rising 7th-9th graders may enjoy 1 or 2 excursions off site (weather permitting). The excursion will be chosen at camp in a girl-led discussion. Parents of our Makers are welcome to join us on Thursday evening at 7pm for an entertaining evening program.
