|Creating a "star"|
On Monday we learned all about stars. Campers acted out the life cycle of a star with a parachute, created a supernova, and made a "sunion" to show the layers of stars. Although it was a bit rainy, we also made sun dials. Make sure to try them out on a sunny day to read the time!

Wednesday's theme was Earth's moon. We explored the phases of the moon using some hands-on activities, a fun version of "Yahtzee!" and a moon phase journal to bring home. Make sure to fill it out throughout the next month to see the whole cycle!

|Making their constellation viewers|
We learned all about constellations on Thursday. Campers went into the planetarium once again for a show all about the stars and constellations that we can see if we were to go outside tonight. They also made constellation viewers of some of the most famous Northern hemisphere constellations and learned the legends behind them. Lastly, they used their imaginations to create their own constellations.
