BUGS Students Participate In A Variety Of Activities
For the students of the BUGS Summer Program there was never a dull moment! Students participated in many different and fascinating activities throughout their weeks of camp. In light of many comments made by students they seemed to very much enjoy their time at the program and all of the various activities they did.
For example, students went on a very intriguing field trip to the Irvine Nature Center. During the trip students saw many animals and learned a lot about nature and wild life. As you can see, students seem to be very happy observing the animals.
Back on campus students continued to have fun doing other things. BUGS students have four basic components during their days on campus. These components include cooking, gardening, dancing, and service learning. During the gardening component of the day students learned how to harvest multiple crops.
Students harvested potatoes:
and even cherry tomatoes:
Throughout the days of camp, students were kept busy doing all of the wonderful activities. Some activities, such as the aerial dancing, were very tiring while being out in the sun all day long. So students were able to take a break and cool off in the sprinkler! It was so much fun and all the students enjoyed the time to just cool off and relax!
