Colorado Summer Camp: A Lesson in Decision Making
Keystone Science School wants to make our summer camp program accessible to everyone. In this spirit, we have a financial aid program called our Campership program. We are currently seeking campership applications from those interested in receiving financial aid for the Summer of Imagination. Please share this information with your friends and apply for our campership program.
Keystone Science School is well known for our summer camp program called Discovery Camp. At Discovery Camp, campers sing, make new friends, and have lots of outdoor adventures. A large part of Discovery Camp is teaching campers skills of independence. Campers are always looked after, but they are also challenged and required to make decisions that encourage independence. Sometimes it’s a simple decision of packing their backpack all by themselves for an overnight camping experience. While this might seem like a simple task this can often be challenging to decide between a lightweight flashlight or a heavier flashlight with much more power. Once the camper is on their overnight backpacking trip, they begin to learn about the impact of their choices. Would it have been better to pack the lightweight flashlight or maybe that extra pair of socks? These camp experiences are what shape campers into future leaders and critical thinkers.
