                    Wild Skies 

                    The most coveted superpower is the ability to fly. Birds can do it and so can bees. This week will focus on animals that have evolved to fly, as well as how humans learned to mimic their winged friends and take to the skies. Observation skills will be fostered as campers get into sky-related topics such as bird behavior, space, weather and the water cycle. Campers will gain a better understanding of the workings of the world above.
