Planet Earth was much too hot for the Nature Day Camp week three kids, so they left it to go Intergalactic.
It was five days of space related games and adventures. We also learned that the moon isn't made of green cheese but rather, cream-filled Oreos. So who knew? And the starry constellations? Marshmallows held together with toothpicks. But of course!
The week ended with Jedi Knight Boot Camp. The Force be with you.
