Happy Graduation, SuperKids Campers!
Cheers to an amazing graduation for our 25th year of SuperKids Camp!
We are incredibly humbled and honored we were able to host this milestone year safely and in person, making use of our campus once again. The speeches, performances, and dances were particularly special after our virtual graduation last summer.
We got to see each SuperKids camper represent their schools, relay their favorite parts of the program, cite things they learned, and celebrate their friend’s successes. The 100 Book Challenge gives campers the opportunity to read and explore books that they find fun and interesting. Each child at SuperKids Camp 2021 has successfully participated in the 100 Book Challenge! This summer, SuperKids campers earned 18,279 credits which equals 4,570 hours of reading!
The Greening Griot Awards are awarded to those campers who embodied our weekly social emotional competencies, demonstrated brilliant creativity, told the best stories, upheld the SuperKids Camp standards and are just pretty awesome!
Awards were given out to our top readers and for perfect attendance!
