Camp Discovery

On Friday, we completed the first week of our Discovery Science Center summer camp: Camp Discovery. Our first two camps were “Summer Smiles” and “Game Masters – Basic Video Game Design.” Here’s a guest post from one of our new summer volunteer, a high school student from Orange County. To view photos from last year’s Camp Discovery, visit our flickr page.

This past week, Camp Discovery successfully launched its first two summer camps. Summer Smiles campers (ages 5 to 6) explored a new world,Dino buddies full of adventure and fun. Friendly and enthusiastic, they engaged in interactive story time with their teacher, plus craft time and fun learning about different creatures! During breaks from the classroom activities, campers are able to explore the interactive exhibits at Discovery Science Center, including Dino Quest. Everyday, our little Summer Smiles kids left Camp Discovery with beautiful crafts and new knowledge of interesting butterflies, caterpillars, and more. They made new friends through the partner-oriented activities and learned to follow directions while having oodles of fun. The Summer Smiles campers surely created unforgettable memories here at Camp Discovery.

 

Game DesignBeginning Video Game Design (ages 10 to 13) is another summer camp where older children and teens experienced an exciting, fascinating week! The campers explored the world of technology. They learned new skills that enabled them to design cool video games and then had tons of fun playing them! The interactive environment between the kids and the teacher allowed everyone to feel comfortable with each other and maintained a fun, friendly atmosphere. By attending Beginning Video Game Design, these kids made new friends, became more knowledgeable of computers and technology, and had a blast doing it all!
