Earn your "Environmentalist" Badge during Elements Week!
We begin by diving right in with our WATER CHALLENGE! Your kiddo will log the amount of water they drink throughout the week. The kiddo or kiddos with the most water consumed by the end of the day, (Each child will be guided to choose a safe water consumtion goal.)
Friday, will receive a special prize! This activity will emphasize the importance of taking care of the environment and living well with the elements. We will learn about pollution, the toll it takes on our ecosystem, and how we can make a positive impact every day.
By mid-week, we will immerse ourselves with a swim at Barretts Cove, have a picnic lunch, and gather around for a talk with our special guest, Holistic Nurse Practitioner Alicia Snow, about water safety & health and the impact pollution has on our bodies and how we can combat the adverse effects! We will also conduct a scavenger hunt to collect items for a Nature Collage, which will be on display at the end of the week, while simultaneously collecting trash and debris.
We wrap up the week with an adventure to the Rockport Harbor kilns, where the elements meet. There we will be greeted by Lobster Woman Sadie Samuels, Captain of F/V Must Be Nice & CEO of the Must Be Nice Lobster Company. She will be giving us an exclusive opportunity to board her boat, where we will depart on an adventure to discover what it means to be a Lobster woman on the Coast of Maine! Once back onshore we will select lobsters for our Kids Unplugged Family Lobster Boil and head back to campus for our Badge ceremony and 4th of July celebration!
