Gotta Love This Camp: The Inquisitive Campers are Back

August 10, 2015 -- Schools like Brewster Academy know that educating students to be successful in the 21st century requires ensuring students possess critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and creative skills as much as knowledge and content skills. And, while the Academy works thoughtfully to deliver such an intentional and robust curriculum during the academic year and during its own summer session, there is another group in the Brewster community that is working hard to empower kids for 21st century success.

Anyone who has spent time on the Brewster campus during the summer in the past decade may recall a group of spirited pre-teens who are known to break into cheers at lunch or a version of Mike d’Abo and Tony Macauley’s “Build Me Up Buttercup” on a walk across campus. They are neither shy nor quiet. They travel from one challenge to the next adorned in whatever colorful wardrobe the moment might call for. They have come for the challenge, for Camp Gottalikachallenge.
