Welcome to “Be My Neighbor” Summer Camp!
PBS Fort Wayne, PNC Grow Up Great and Fred Rogers Productions are proud to bring this virtual Summer Camp experience to you, our neighbors! Our goal is to provide educational hands-on opportunities for you and your family to safely explore, learn, and grow with a different activity each day over a five day period.
Below are five days of summer camp activities for you and your family, plus a video to help guide you through each of the easy and safe crafts. Also listed day by day are PDF files of each day’s lesson to download and use as a guide.
Have fun learning and using these one at a time or all at once!
Day 1: BUGS
On the first day of camp, we‛re going to find out what bugs live right here in our own backyard. We‛ll make a bug craft and show you how to make a snack that looks just like a bug you can eat.
Day 2: BIRDS
Day Two will focus on our feathered friends, birds! Can you find all the birds by sitting quietly in your backyard? Learn how you can attract birds by making your own birdfeeder!
Day 3: SHAPES
Math and art merge on the third day of camp. Learning colors and shapes helps understand math. Head outside and see what shapes you can find. Then, we‛ll do a craft and make something cool with shapes!
Day 4: TREES & FLOWERS
Learn about the different trees and flowers that are common to Indiana. Did you know that much of the food we eat starts as a seed?
Day 5: SOUNDS
Sound is produced when something vibrates. The vibrating causes (water, air, etc.) inside of something to create a sound. We‛ll make a musical craft and learn about sound!
