Questions to Ask Your Crawdad Camper

If you’re wondering what your camper has been up to this week, here are some questions to get the conversation started…

  • This is a shorter week of Schoolhouse of Wonder, so we are going to create as many memories this week as possible. What is your camper most excited to do this week? If this is your camper’s first time here, what Schoolhouse tradition is becoming their new favorite?
  • Today we played a game called Camouflage, a running and hiding game. Just like a crawdad burrows under rocks, your campers were encouraged to find a hiding space to avoid predators (in our game, counselor Zoe was the one to hide from). Where did your camper hide? Did your camper do anything special to camouflage?
  • Staying true to our camp group name, our campers get a chance to find crawdads and other critters down by the creek. Did your camper encounter any cool animals today? If your camper got to meet a crawdad, were they where they were expecting? Ask them to share how it felt if they got to hold one and feel the tiny pinchers.
