Then we’ll find some nature, decorate our journals and finish the day with a snack and our first journal entry!

FEELIN' GROOVY

Join us as we learn how to make fireworks in the house, fire-free s'mores and much more. These activities will bring some joy and enrichment to you while stuck inside. 

FUN WITH WORDS

Words, phrases and even interjections like “Wow,” “Oh” and “Yay“ give meaning to thoughts, beliefs, emotions and desires. With words, we explain what’s important to us and we describe what we want the most. With words, we share our strongest feelings and we express our deepest beliefs. Today, we’re going to have fun using words as the basis for all that’s planned for today.

HERE COMES THE BOOM

The art of exploding things and seeing the science behind many eruptions can be so exciting! Learn about how to make your own erupting volcano, Coke and Mentos experiment and how volcanoes work.

PERSONAL FITNESS

Taking care of your body with healthy food, exercise and other physical activity promotes strong muscles and bones as well as healthy skin, and improved heart, lung and brain health. And, personal fitness can help lower stress. We’ve built an entire day filled with fun ways to personal fitness. 

NEW! PREHISTORIC PLAYTIME

Was “Big Foot” real? What did T-Rex eat for breakfast? We may not be able to answer these questions but we’re going to have fun exploring a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth and birds almost as big as planes flew across the sky!

NEW! RAINFOREST DAY

More than half of the world's plant, animal and insect species live in tropical rainforests; thousands still haven’t been discovered. Rainforests are important to the planet because they absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, and produce oxygen, which is important to animal survival. Learn more about rainforests in this daily schedule.

SCIENTIFICALLY SPEAKING ... 

Let’s talk about science! If you love learning about science, technology, engineering and/or math all while having fun, you’ve picked the right day to join We Cancerve on our S.T.E.M. day! From rock collecting to making oobleck, our Camp Happy Counselors have designed a fun day centered on S.T.E.M.

SELF-CARE: A DAY DEVOTING TO SELF-ESTEEM

Self-care is all about promoting positive and healthy ideals about yourself. When you take time to take care of yourself, you remind yourself that you’re important. It also teaches others how to treat you.  We focus this day on tips to produce positive feelings, boost self-confidence and build self-esteem.
