We'll kick off the summer with team-building games, scavenger hunts, and map-making challenges as our troops work together and explore our neighborhood.

Self-expression through fashion is the theme this week. Campers will learn basic mending skills, create their own wearable art, use non-traditional materials and even visit a working fashion designer's studio.

Week 3, June 17-21: Soulard Double Dare

We get messy with slime challenges and other science concoctions. We'll learn ways to reduce our plastic consumption at the Science Center and reuse what we have to create a messy showdown of slime-tastic fun. 

Week 4, June 25-29: Soulard Survivor

Do you have what it takes to survive? Campers will learn fire safety, compass skills, edible plant identification and more. The week ends with an optional potluck and campout on the playground. 

 

Camp is closed the weeks of 7/1 and 7/8
