What IS The Outdoor Learning Environment, Anyway?

When we first moved into Homestead Campus 6 years ago, we began developing a vision for what the Outdoor Learning Environment could become! Over the last 6 years it has gone from a grassy field full of pricker bushes to a place where students thrive and they, as well as the greater community, get a chance to sharpen their saws! Please see below for the artist’s original rendering of the vision for the space. While the 2nd slide says “future” the future is HERE! And we need your help to make this vision a reality! Please plan on attending the fundraiser on June 21st!

Summer Technology Camp Opportunity for Girls

Camp Infinity is a week-long summer technology camp for girls entering 5th to 8th grade that introduces technology as fun and fulfilling and inspires the pursuit of technology education. MCWT Foundation created it to address the primary reasons girls lose interest in technology: confidence, social relevance, and social (peer) acceptance.

The camp:

  • Builds confidence and capability with hands-on technology activities such as robotics and computer game design
  • Demonstrates that technology is fun through the execution of engaging projects with other girls, with high school girls as counselors
  • Reinforces social relevance by featuring visitors from the local technology community that explain how their work is important to society at large

Founded in 2004, Camp Infinity helps spark girls’ interest in math and science, which tends to decrease during middle-school years. It separates the girls into two groups of 20 by grade to better cater to their technological experience. The fourth and fifth grade girls focus on website, app and video game design while the sixth and seventh graders focus on robotics and web and app design.

During lunch, professionals from leading area companies meet with the girls and encourage them to continue learning about technology. Access to role models like these reinforces the rewards and opportunities a career in technology can bring.

Date: Holland – July 16th thru July 19th

  • Lunch will be provided each day.
  • Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided each day.
  • All camp supplies will be provided.
  • Camp Infinity times are from 8:30am-3:30pm Monday – Thursday
  • Cost: $75/camper. Limited scholarships are available to reduce the cost to $25/camper.
