Tuesday brought even more fun, as the campers headed into their morning classes. The Comparative Zoology students continued learning about animal organs, this time by dissecting a snake. Across the hall, the campers in Velocity Vehicles made speedy mousetrap cars.
In small groups before lunch, the campers had fun doing a team-building exercise in which they had to communicate with each other as a team to figure out how to get through a maze. "Ah, yes!" and "almost, almost!" were heard throughout the room as the teams slowly made their way through the maze.
Out on the driving range, the Golf Academy campers were excited to try out custom-sized golf clubs they made Monday in the club-making workshop. Their shining new pitching wedges and irons glistened in the sun as they attempted to perfect their swing by aiming at targets around the course.
While washing her new club, Shelby talked about all the places she has lived in as the child of a father who is a member of the Air Force.
"I've lived in Germany, Paris, Alaska, Alabama and now in California," she explained. "We are moving again in a year but don't know where yet."
Back inside the Learning Center, the Comparative Marine Science class was hands-deep dissecting a starfish as they discussed the creatures living in the ocean. As a group of boys worked together examining starfish organs in the back of the classroom, Jordan from California told his groupmates, "We have to take this stuff seriously, guys -- we might be meant for it. We could be doctors someday!"
Down the hall in Alternative Energy, friends Victoria and Janice had fun dancing while building their wind turbines and testing them out with fans. The Digital Photography class had a blast designing a graphic that was later placed on T-shirts for them to take home.
As for after-camp activities, Shelby was eager to talk about her first time doing archery.
"I'd never done it before, yet I hit one right on the bullseye and one next to it! It was so fun!"
The main topic of discussion around camp Tuesday was all about the upcoming trip to Disneyland on Wednesday! Gavin, one of the D.C. Learning Center students, mentioned that he has never been to Disneyland before.
"I'm from Maryland, never been west of Texas, so it's both my first time in California and to Disneyland," he said while stretching before Golf Fitness. "I'm looking forward to the Tower of Terror, heard a lot about it."
