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! Minecraft, 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!
Farm to Table takes a close look at the sources of our food, giving kids a tasty lesson in going local. Brain Freeze explores the world of science at its coldest. Mutants, Marvels, and Superheroes examines our classic super heroes and super villains, and guides kids into creating their own. Waffle Iron Cooking promises to do some amazing things with…you guessed it…just the lowly waffle iron.
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.
