Civic Heroes Camp

Civic Heroes Virtual Summer Camp



Welcome to Planet Civic - where kids rule the world! On this planet, campers become Superheroes-in-training and will build their own communities, run their cities, and help their neighbors. Campers will participate in creative games, activities, and civic lessons to learn what it means to be a citizen. In the end, campers will leave as fully trained Superheroes for their communities.

Training and Top Secret Missions

Through the course of the camp, participants will be introduced to the five character traits of a good citizen: compassion, honesty, respect, responsibility, and courage. Each day they will dive into the basics of our government including learning about the Constitution, governing branches, American symbols, citizen rights and responsibilities, and the election process. They will have the opportunity to meet with community heroes from our area and even design their very own communities. While also learning about heroes who shaped history, they'll be inspired to be active citizens who make an impact on the world around them.
