Summer camp activities included arts and crafts activities, English games, science experiments, team-building activities, computer projects, and school beautification efforts. Specifically, arts and crafts activities included making bracelets, snow globes, woven placemats, picture frames, paper mache rattles, and string and stick “eyes”. English games included board games like hangman and word tic-tac-toe, word-searches, and other games like “upset the picnic basket”, Bingo, scavenger hunts, and matching capital and small letters and ordinal numbers. Students also listened to a story and drew a picture about it.For science projects, students built and “exploded” a volcano using baking powder and vinegar. As team-building activities, students worked together to build a tower, create a mural, and go on a scavenger hunt. On the computers, students practiced writing their names and words that corresponded with the letters of their names; they put these words in different fonts. To improve the school grounds, students planted flowers and painted murals on classroom walls. I judge the camp a huge success by the excitement of my students.

“Thank you so much for the opportunity you gave my students and myself. It made my day to go to camp every day and see the smiles on my students’ faces.” V. de Bruyn.
