Holiday Camp Schedule

As with all of our Holiday Camps, we start the each session with a discussion of the reason for our holiday - in this case Election Day.  We discuss what it means to vote and it's importance as the foundation of our democracy. And then Students are asked to construct a LEGO build expressing what they learn and understand. LEGO projects are displayed for Parents and Visitors to see as we celebrate our right to vote on this special day.
