Animal World

Week 1 Recap

Girlstart's first week of camp was filled with adventurous, animal-loving campers. Girls researched animal facts to create a 3D habitat to design their own Girlstart Zoo, investigated how animals use bioluminescence for their survival, and tons more. We are looking forward to two more weeks of animal adventures.

Hands-On Wednesday

Avalanche Rescue

Snow rarely falls in Austin, Texas and when it does everything shuts down and we all enjoy a fabulous snow day! As southerners it is hard to understand how individuals go to school, work, or even outside when it is so cold outside however those locations are well prepared for severe weather situations. Girlstart’s Ice Age Summer Camp is around the corner and we will explore several extreme weather scenarios including an avalanche. Check out this Hands-On Wednesday Ice Age Sneak Peek.
