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.
Calling all junior architects! Construct mini-communities, a mini model of your house and other cool buildings. Transform sticks, cardboard and other common supplies into neat looking structures. Learn about simple architectural concepts and techniques.
Fairy tales turn into reality at this camp; we’ll follow breadcrumbs, hunt for magic beans, and make up our own magical stories, too! Campers will become one with the story of the day and learn that imagination is everything.
