Sweet Cream & Book Dreams Summer Camp

Monday-A full day of all things Ben & Jerry’s. Each camper will make a tie dye tee shirt, homemade ice cream, create a waffle cone, tour the store, and learn about Ben & Jerry’s history, what fair trade is and why NON GMO matters. We will end the day Ben & Jerry’s trivia and prizes.

Tuesday- Main Street Books is bringing back the lost art of letter writing. We will read The Day the Crayons Quit (a book written in letters, of course) and start letter writing from the beginning by folding our own envelopes, creating our own stationary, composing letters, and addressing them correctly. Come prepared with address of a friend or we will have military pen pals you can write to. We will mail our letters and end with a tour of the Davidson Post Office to learn how letters get from here to there. 

Wednesday-Ben & Jerry’s, Davidson and YOU!-Grab your camera and get ready for a photo extravaganza. Think Where’s Waldo, but it’s Where’s Jerry, of Ben & Jerry’s of course! We will draw/color and laminate “Jerry” and take him around Davidson taking photos along the way. We will create a photo album that includes Ben & Jerry’s, Davidson and YOU!

Thursday – Are you a fan of Wreck This Journal? Camp will start with an inspiring story time and Main Street Books will teach basic bookbinding and guide kids in making a custom Wreck This Journal-style journal that will get your creative juices flowing. In addition, we will upcycle books into bookmarks. 

Friday-The final hurrah! Decorate your own Ben & Jerry’s ice cream cake and take it home! Learn different styles of cake tips, how to color icing, different types of toppings and how to write on cakes. If you are going to do a single day camp, this is the one to pick!
