BASE Camp 2016 Highlights

What a great summer! BASE Camp campers dove into challenging hands-on projects, made real-world connections, ventured out on exciting field trips, and learned from visiting experts. From Sailing to Comics, Coding to Music Video, we watched kids try new things and make new friends in 50% more programs than we’ve ever offered before. With that in mind, take a look at these articles, photos, and video highlights from the past four weeks and be sure to share them with your friends.

Special thanks to David T. Kindler for his video talents and Grace Fox for her great photos all summer!
