Sun, Snacks, Science - Summer Camp Mullingar , Co. Westmeath

Summer Camp details are finalised.
It's called Sun, Snacks and Science. While I can't promise the sun, our days will be structured so that we make the most of any dry time to go outside in the school garden.

Summer Camp for 8-12+ year olds, Mon-Fri 10:00am-2:00pm
Cost €70 per week. If 2 kids from the same family book, the price goes down to €130
Week 1 - July 19-23rd,
Week 2 - July 26th-30th

Depending on the weather, we'll have activities inside or outside - harvesting from the school garden, cooking and eating what we harvest, making bath bombs, paper making, seed saving, vermiculture, composting, pond dipping, mini beast hunt, physics experiments, seed planting in recycled paper pots, making ginger ale, scavenger hunt, nature awareness. The week will culminate with the students making pizza for themselves. Parents welcome to join in for the pizza eating on the last day.

I will keep adding new activities as I think of them. The garden is looking great at the moment, and there are plenty of bugs in evidence. We had our pride of place judging yesterday - waiting with bated breath to hear how we got on. The students did a stellar job of presenting all of Natures riches that we have in the garden.

Anna - this looks great - without being too commercially cut-throat about such things, you might like to think about how you could take the learning from your experience and offer it as a format that others could do in other areas.

Very best of luck to you

Hi Chris - thanks for the positive comments - maybe we should talk after I have run the camps.
