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 Junior and Senior campers will be invited to attend the 27th 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.
SESSION E (August 16 – August 27): TREASURE ISLAND
Argh YMCA mateys! Come walk the plank onto me pirate ship! Have some swashbuckling pirate fun with a canon ball toss, stranded island obstacle course, crocodile hunt and more. Send a message in a bottle, try your hand (or hook) at sand art, and become a Captain Hook look alike.
