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!!!
