I know it's only February, and summer seems like a distant dream, but, here at Lakehill, summer camp preparations are in full swing! Calendars are being set; camp descriptions are being finalized; and the Lakehill Summer Camps staff is busy planning a summer full of fun and adventure.
As this process unfolds, a single thought keeps coming back to me: I wish I were a kid again!
This year's camp lineup looks fabulous! STEM, Community Connections, LEGO Engineering, Destination Dallas, and other perennial favorites are all lined up and ready to go, but it's the new kids on the block that have me really excited! Thirty Seconds to Fame challenges kids to create the ultimate summer blockbuster movie trailers to hint at the bigger tales to be told. Summer with the Bard gives older campers a taste of Elizabethan verse, Shakespeare-style. Slithery, Scaly Snakes promises some up-close encounters with our forked-tongued friends. And, Games: Unplugged will remind campers that kids survived (and enjoyed!) the summer months long before entertainment involved plugs or batteries.
These quirky, new, outside-the-box camps are exactly the kind of camps I would have enjoyed as a kid, and I'd love nothing more than to roll back the clock and sign up! I'm so thrilled at the creativity and energy that our summer camp teachers have put into their camps already, and I can't wait to see their ideas unfold as the months roll on.
