Become an elite agent and solve this week’s TOP SECRET CASE! You’ll have to have a keen eye, smooth moves, and a quick mind to decipher clues and discover the truth. Lucky for you you’ll have a whole group of friends at camp to help solve this mystery!
Around the world in 5 days! We’ll be learning all about different regions, people and their customs from all over the world through arts/crafts, group games and science activities. We may even ask families to bring in items that represent their own cultures.
We’re going recycling-crazy! This week we will be reducing and reusing—let your imagination take the reins and create a robot from a shoebox or a volcano from a water bottle and just imagine what you could create from some buttons and a soda can… Many of our creations this week will be submitted to the YMCA’s Annual Thingamajig Invention Convention occurring the following week to be eligible to win some exciting prizes! Campers do not need to be enrolled in camp the week of the Invention Convention to claim their prizes.
STEM shapes our everyday experiences and is designing our future—our Thingamajig camp opens doors to strategic thinking and creative expression by challenging children to invent solutions to everyday problems using only what can be re-purposed around them. This is a very special week as our campers will be invited to attend the 26th Annual YMCA Thingamajig Invention Convention—a one of a kind STEM-based gathering where youth and community partners come together to learn, explore, experiment, and discover.
Celebrate all your favorite holidays at camp with us—from Halloween to Valentines Day, St Patrick’s Day to New Years Eve and many more! As if that isn’t enough excitement, we’ll be ending the week with a giant Birthday Party for everybody. You won’t want to miss this week at camp!
Explore the jungle and come face to face with leopards, tucans, and spider monkeys… Okay, not really face-to-face, but come learn about all the cool animals hidden in the jungle while doing lots of animal crafts, playing jungle games, and most importantly making tons of friends at camp!
