The Summer Olympics may have been pushed back to 2021, but the children at Discovery Point still got the chance to “Go for the Gold!” with our Summer Camp 2020 program.
Each week, we explored a new gold-base theme, taking our students on an exciting new adventure to engage them, to help them learn, and provide some fun! From Hollywood Gold to the Gold Coast of Australia to Egyptian gold in the pyramids and more, we learned about different types of “gold” all summer long.
