Week 8 - When I Grow Up...

Campers at Great Explorations had so much fun exploring different careers this week. Counselors paired each profession with an arts and crafts project, helping campers create memories and mementoes of their week at camp!

The first day of school is right around the corner, so campers explored the noble profession of teaching and decorated pencil boxes.

Learning about careers led to conversations about money so campers painted piggy banks!

Our two walking field trips allowed campers to explore the neighborhood as well as what it is like to be an artist or a chef.

Campers painted their own masterpieces at Practically Pikasso.

 We can't wait to see what the plates look like when they come out of the kiln!

Campers learned about being chefs and decorated a standard tool of the trade.

 

 Every chef needs a beautiful tray to serve goodies on!

 Campers enjoy the "fruits" of their labors (tomatoes are a fruit, right?).

It was a wonderful last week of Summer Camp at Great Explorations and we are so grateful for the support of Creative Pinellas and the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners!
