“Adventure is worthwhile in itself”
Everyone knows that Amelia Earhart was the first female pilot to cross the atlantic solo, and that she disappeared under still unexplained circumstances in a flight in 1937. But she was also a best selling author, professor, and an early advocate for the ERA.
Under her inspiration as a Summer Camp Muse, we will not only explore flight using paper, small engines and loose parts, we will look at the art of cartography, and play with the idea of travel and adventure by creating stories of new lands and the cultures that inhabit them.
Each week during Summer Camp at The Lab in Eagle Rock, the materials and activities available for kids will be inspired by a different historical female figure that has shaped out world in bold new ways.
