Service and Sewing Pajama Party

The final camp of the summer was a blast!  We invited parents/grandparents to come with their 4-Her to a Sewing and Service Pajama party at the Sevier County Fairgrounds.  The LDS Humanitarian Center gave us all we needed to tie baby quilts and we were able to complete two quilts.  The youth also completed 3 sewing projects - pj pants, a pillowcase, and a pillow pet.  We had the music going and snacks and it was just so much fun!  Thanks to Lara for planning the camp and to the adults that came to help out - it was a great success.

Science Adventure

This summer our Science Adventures Camp was packed with great experiments and great kids.  Lara did a fantastic job planning and teaching the camp and we had 15 youth eager to learn and do each experiment.

A few of the experiments included: egg in a bottle, quicksand goo, color changing milk, homemade ice cream, invisible ink, and several others.  We adapted a few of the Aggie Adventure camp guides to fit our schedule and the kids we had signed up.  If you'd like to see more of the Aggie Adventure camp guides you can download them here.

On the last day the youth made their own videos to share things they learned at camp.  (Note: if you are get motion sick easy, these may be a little hard to watch - you've been warned!) They did a great job planning out the story they wanted to tell then filming in action.  Thanks to Lara for her editing and thanks to all the kids for coming to camp and having such a great time!
