Kids learn at Camp Invention

When their imaginary spacecraft crashes on Planet Zak, local students are put in a position of self-preservation and are faced with saving a polluted city in the process. During Camp Invention, held June 29 – July 2 at Summerside Elementary School, 42 students from grades one – six took part in the creative program.

“The students were taught ways to save a city from pollution,” said director Sarah Bose. “Each group had to construct a city completely from recyclable materials.”

Campers had to build forts for protection while on the planet and many rebuilt their spaceships for the return trip to earth.
