What is creativity? What is your creative superpower?


CAMP WHAT IF PLEDGE

I will be curious because curiosity open windows. I will ask questions! 

I will be a co-hero. Together, we will be co-learners, co-explorers, and co-creators. I promise not to follow the counselors lead! I will follow my imagination! 

I will give respect. I will respect people, technology, myself and our ideas!

I will engage my “What if…” powers. This week, I will SQUINT. I will not SQUELCH!
