Next, students learned about the phases of the moon, making a phases of the moon viewer and doing a light and shadow experiment.   Each day the students have done amazing, creative art projects, crafts, and experiments revolving around the moon.

  This year's Winter Camp has been themed around a Winter Wonderland. Students have had many creative arts and craft activities.
