Air Benders - Day 3 - Week 7 (SF Day Camp)

This Wednesday was certainly one for the books! Due to an event in the Palace, we spent out day outside. When we arrived to the field campers waiting eagerly for the days challenge reveal: KITES!


Tinkerers broke into their own smalls groups and were quickly swept away into their kite building world. They checked out all kinds of materials to figure out what would make the best kite. Although working in the swift San Francisco wind was a struggle with materials like plastic, our campers worked together to figure it out.


Come lunch time we had built about 10-12 kites; a variety of shapes, sizes, and designs. After eating and play time we packed up our stuff and headed to the beach for an afternoon of fort building and kite flying fun! Using some of our same pvc pipes from the morning, these campers turned on their tinkering brains to build some crazy forts.

Building on the beach is always a blast
