Codes, riddles, and scavenger hunts

Fun start to our second week of sprout summer camp in Lincoln Square! We learned about Morse code and hieroglyphs. Then each camper made their own secret code. The older group made a scavenger hunt around the building while the younger group finished their codes. Then they went on the scavenger hunt!

Sprout Camp Week One comes to an end

It has been a super fast day week with our “Summer @ Sprout” group!  We ended the week with printmaking (and which inspired other painting) and finally with a student request: Egg Drop Challenge!

Sprout Camp!!!

It has been a wonderful couple of days at Sprout Camp on the St. Matthias Campus.  We are loving all the seasoned Sprouters and all of our new Sprout kiddos that have joined us for this week!  Yesterday, we began our day in teams of two with an indoor (so yucky and wet outside) scavenger hunt.  Each team looked for riddles, solved them, the re-hid the clues for the next group.  The first team to solve all 7 puzzles was the winner!  🙂 Sprout bragging rights!

Then we made ice cream in a bag!  It was cold, messy and delicious!!!!

Sir Isaac Newton has taught us that what goes up must come down and with every action there is an equal and opposite reaction! Those statements were tested today with the interactions of vinegar and baking soda acting together to create pressure inside of a bottle causing the bottle (or cork) to push it’s way up in the air and gravity pulling it back down!  What fun we had today.

Then some of the kids made their own crazy volcanic explosions too!!!
