BUGS Summer Students Continue To Have A Blast
The students at the BUGS Summer Program are continuing to have a lot of fun! The kids have been kept busy doing many interesting activities. These activities include many educational and fun adventures, projects, and field trips. For example during the first day of the session we did a scavenger hunt in the garden. Students found (and tasted!) everything from kale leaves to beets.
Then students got a special treat of being able to climb to the top of the tower on the Living Classrooms campus and enjoy a wonderful view.
Later in the week students went on a fun field trip to go pick blueberries. We had a ton of fun being out picking the blueberries! Then the next day we used some of the blueberries we handpicked to make wonderful blueberry muffins!
Finally, students participated in BUGS weekly trip to the Farmers Market. Each Tuesday two students from the BUGS Program are picked to attend the Farmers Market in order to sell the food and herbs the students have recently harvested from the garden or cooked in the kitchen. The Farmers Market always takes a lot of preparation and hard work but it is always a lot of fun!
