About the Camp: Join Annie and Jack as they solve problems, help people, and travel around the world and through time. Through our exploration of the Magic Tree House books, we might visit China, the Swiss Alps, or the Australian Outback! We’ll even find out about the great Houdini and learn magic tricks to amaze our friends. Like Annie and Jack, we will learn about the animals and people in each environment we visit. We will read some of the stories and act out some of the scenes. We’ll also plan a visit to the Eastman House Gardens to get a chance to be one with nature, just like Annie & Jack! You will have a chance to try your hand at art activities and present a story or skit for family and friends on the last day.
