July flew by and we had so much fun we can't even contain it to just one post!
Camp Quest Kansas City had its first year ever this year and what a year it was. Campers got to dissect squid and learn about their inner workings. Other activities they particapated in were martial arts, swinging some poi, and canoeing out on the lake. In the whale evolution program kids got to learn about how whales first developed as mammals on land before diving back into the sea.
At Camp Quest West they even had two sessions!
During Camp Quest Norcal the kids loved to rock out and sing all their favorite camp songs. Astronomy, working with simple machines, and making your own sonic screwdrivers out of pens were all activities we had a blast doing. Kids even got to put together opposing sides of a peaceful protest on whether or not to ban healthy cereals, while designing their own posters, shirts, and bumper stickers.
Not to be out done, Camp Quest Socal brewed up their own DNA. They did an experiment where they quite literally sucked the DNA out of strawberries! More activities included hiking, discussing communication, and having a fabulous board game night. One of the favorites, however, was when they had a Flying Spaghetti Monster pirate themed dance, where kids got to dance the night away in pirate garb.
Back over on the east coast, Camp Quest Chesapeake was a splash with their super slick waterslide. There was plenty of fun to be had ncluding dance classes, improv games, and a guest speaker who educated us on bats. Physics were brought into the equation with an awesome optics program where campers got to test the limited of light and polarize common objects. » Read more
