Be a change maker! We all have the power to make the world a better place, one action at a time. And stories, true and fictional, have the power to guide us. This camp helps us learn about the heroes among us, at all levels of society and in different times, and encourages us to stretch our “social good” muscles. We’ll learn about Frederick Douglass, Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., Helen Keller, Lou Gehrig, and other historic figures by reading age-appropriate biographies. We’ll perform acts of kindness, make picture books, and use our artistic and creative selves to empower ourselves and make a difference in our community.
