Event description

Description

Play is crucial to development, to happiness, to empathy, to creativity, to connectedness, to reducing stress, oh and it is just fun. So come play with us in this food-inspired day camp. Activities involve: constructing a solar oven to cook a delicious fruity dessert, and learning basic culinary skills to make Vietnamese inspired summer rolls with two types of dipping sauces. There will also be much explorative and creative play time throughout the day in our unique spaces like the nest, deep tinker, taste buds, showtime, flutter foot and the slide zone. Ages 10-14.


When: Wednesday, July 11th, 9-4 PM

Where: We’ll meet at the couches in the JUMP lobby and then go from there.

Cost: $50. Includes all supplies to make and take home your very own solar oven. JUMP will provide food and we will collectively make our own lunch/snacks to learn healthy habits and get culinarily creative! A variety of food to make will be available so kids can build meals that accommodate their dietary restrictions, but please feel free to reach out to programs@jumpboise.org with any further questions.


"I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing businesses and organizations - I was the Volunteer Coordinator for the non-profit, "Denver Food Rescue," I interned at the shop, "Moondance Botanicals," and I was the Nutrition Coordinator for the international organization, "Action for Natural Medicine." I am currently the Share Studio Coordinator at JUMP. What I love about my job is planning creative and educational community programs. When I am not working I enjoy cooking, bicycling, movies, dreaming about the beach, making art, and spending time with my husband and two cats."

What is your passion?

"I am passionate about new experiences. Opportunities that force us out of our comfort zone allow us to recognize and explore aspects of ourselves we might not have previously realized. This is why I adore travel and adventure; along with other places and cultures I am also getting to know myself, my fears, insecurities, and resilience through the exploration of the new and unknown."
