Camp Overview: A majority of our camp takes place in the Benderson Family Finish Tower, but throughout the day we have incorporated some free time and games outside for kids to be kids! The day starts off with introductions, an ice-breaker game, and an overview of camp rules and expectations. Campers will participate in 2-3 STEM activities over the course of the day. We spend our lunch outside (weather permitting) on the picnic tables in front of the Finish Tower.
How to prepare for Camp
• Pack a lunch, snacks, and water bottle for camper – we will provide a drinking fountain where campers can refill their water bottles
• As mentioned above, we will spend portions of the day outside so we recommend shoes your child can run around in, as well as weather appropriate attire.
• Please make sure your child has a healthy breakfast prior to arriving at camp.
