Top it off by making your own English muffin pizza. Now you’re cooking! *Please note that campers will come in contact with food during this camp*
1pm – 4pm | Toyland Take-Apart
- Did you recently get some new toys? Bring one of your old ones to Maker Space to find out what makes it tick – and then use the pieces and parts to make something new and exciting! *Campers unable to bring a toy that moves or makes noise will have one provided for them.*
