Week 1—Virtual Camp Offerings

TIME TRAVEL JOURNEYS
Ages 9-14
Morning Session 9 AM to 12 PM

What if you could travel back in time to the best moments of your childhood (your favorite games, toys, songs, tv shows, snacks, friends, etc.) and ahead to the most exciting experiences of your future in high school, college, career paths, and retirement? Where would you go? What would you do?
Time Travel Journeys is like a virtual road trip where you hop in a time machine and explore who you were when you were younger, who you want to become when you are older, and how these discoveries can help you understand and appreciate who you are today. Get ready to find goofy old photos, play with Play-Doh and Legos, build epic forts, and explore the world’s coolest jobs you could have one day. It’s your whole life in one epic time travel journey.
