Do your kids go to summer camp? Our girls leave at the end of the month for a 4-day camp and are excited about the possibilities. New friends. Innovative ideas. There is so much to see and do at summer camp each year.
But, camp doesn’t always go the way they expect it to go. Sometimes things can go much different, and actually turn out better than you could have imagined.
An American Girl Story: Summer Camp, Friends for Life
When aspiring filmmaker, Suzy, aka “Z,” and her best friend, Paz, a budding engineer, arrive at S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) summer camp, they can’t wait to enjoy their days in high-tech heaven.
But, their plans are derailed when the camp administrator (Golden Globe winner Camryn Manheim) invites all of the campers to “explore the great outdoors.”
In the eyes of Z and Paz, their summer is doomed. Until they meet an enchanting camp “counselor” named Jordan and things take a mysterious turn.
Jordan sends them on an eye-opening adventure that introduces them to a world of infinite possibilities — including making a new friend.
Together with their new friend, Drew, they learn how to think outside the box. To push forward and not back down from a challenge.
Don’t let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live. —Dr. Mae Jemison, NASA
By working as a team, they were able to solve the mystery and even invited to return each year as often as they could.
Much like the summer camp experiences my own children have had, they were able to form friendships that could last a lifetime, as well as learn something about themselves and the world around them.
From how to combine their passion for technology and the great outdoors, to how to notice the need for companionship in others.
