What Will I Do at Change the World Camp?
Change the World Camp is a chance for campers to be a part of a real project that impacts their community. Campers will work in teams that will use a Design Thinking process to create a project of their own choosing. Each team will have a budget and two counselors to help facilitate the design process.
The project can be anything that the team of campers imagines. Many projects will end up being similar to Eagle Scout projects, except completed by a team and on a shorter timeline. Counselors will have some starter ideas with which to begin the creative process, but teams will brainstorm and will be allowed to pursue any feasible project within the budget and time constraints. Counselors will guide teams through adjustments as needed to make sure the project fits constraints.
This camp is designed to create real outcomes:
- Learning Outcomes for the campers
- A real, tangible contribution for the community
- A team of motivated campers who have experienced what it takes to improve the world around them
