Salamanders / STEAM
Monday - Friday, 9 - 3PM July 6th - July 10th
Our youngest campers experience the wonders of summer through outdoor adventures, music and crafts, games and stories, and time in the garden. Friendships are sure to bloom during shared meals and open-ended play. Our Inchworms will explore the wonder of Simple Machines this week with our STEAM instructor, Jared Hedges.
