There’s 104 days of summer vacation and school comes along just to end it so the annual problem for Magic Sky Ranch is finding a good way to spend it!
In our 3 day sessions we really wanted to make it the best 3 day camp ever. To do that we wanted to give the girls a chance to get creative and experience new things!
Campers got to practice their archery skills with their counselors as well as making pet rocks with our arts and crafts specialist. They got to reach new heights and learn how to set and achieve their own goals on the climb wall and with the low ropes team building exercises with the challenge adventure specialists, and our dance and drama specialist taught campers to be creative and silly and helped them gain confidence while having fun doing improv! Our nature and science specialist had many options for the girls to choose from: laws of motion with bottle rockets, taxonomy with jelly beans, states of matter and ice cream, reflection and light with giant bubbles and polymers with gak. All the activities are very hands on and interactive to make it easier to take in more of the information and still have fun! Campers were given the opportunity to appreciate nature with their hike to the lake and they were given many opportunities for independence and responsibility! We all do kapers (chores) at Magic Sky Ranch to help keep our camp Girl Scout tidy and this allows campers to learn about responsibility and helping out! Whether its choosing bedtime or what to wear for the weather or how to spend their rest time the campers and figuring out how to be independent and be themselves!
We ended our Phineas and Ferb-tastic session with a roller coaster inator invention hour where the campers were given various supplies and freedom to invent whatever their hearts desired while working with their unit! At the end of this session all the campers took a lot of happy memories with them and some life long skills like teamwork, independence and responsibility!
