From Gen to Gen
We will be having an event for you to get to know another generation! Across different workshops we will learn all about your grown-ups past and how life was when they were growing up. This event will be split up into different sessions:
Sections 1-2: Ready, Set, Ask!
- Here students will develop a questionaire for their parents or grandparents to learn about their generation.
Sections 3-4: Literacy
- Now we will take those answers from the previous section and create a story of how you think your parents lived before.
Sections 5-6: Creativity
- Using that story we will create a piece of art. Transfoming the story into a picture, video, or poem. You choose how to bring your story to life!
Date: March 20th ~ May
Camp will be held Tuesday-Friday 10 AM-2 PM beginning July 13th, and ending July 30th. Parents have the option to select either Tuesdays and Thursdays OR Wednesdays and Fridays for their campers. Please make your selection of either the purple group or the green group.

Our goal of camp is to empower our campers self esteem and self worth. We want our campers to be prepared to re-integrate back into school and with peers following Covid. Participants will spend camp time learning and operating a 3D printer as well as many STEM and coding robotic related activities. We will also focus on mental and physical health during engaging exercises. Our lessons will help our campers gain knowledge on potential degrees and certifications towards their future goals and careers.
