CAMP WHAT IF @HOME

CAMP WHAT IF @ HOME-DAY 5

Your ideas have the power to change the world.

We believe middle schoolers have the great ideas of tomorrow in them today. You don’t have to wait till after college to launch your ideas into the world. You can start today.

Your mission today is to get inspired to change to your world. 

From small acts of kindness to big projects, creative ideas have the power to help others in powerful ways.

What’s your creative idea? What if… your idea became real?

BIG QUESTION OF THE DAY

Who do you see as a community hero?


CAMP WHAT IF PLEDGE

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

I will be a co-hero because I am a part of a team. 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! 


CREATIVITY WARM-UP

Would you rather… eat no candy at Halloween or no turkey at Thanksgiving?
