HISTORY DETECTIVES WEEK
Mountains, seas, and prehistoric creatures! SPREE summer campers became history detectives in the final week of summer camp this year.
We learned about prehistoric oceans and the brachiopods, trilobites, and other creatures that lived there. Then we headed down to the South Platte to see what critters live here now.
Campers got creative making their own “bugs in amber” and even dressed up as prehistoric mammals. We dug for dinosaurs in the sand, excavated a cookie, and made our own fossils using plaster and clay. Campers also had a blast making volcanoes and then exploding them with baking soda and vinegar.
We closed out the week with our special graduation ceremony where campers received their Chompers card.
