Cornstarch Slime a Big Hit at Kent City Fun Camp

Kent City Elementary students made cornstarch slime called Oobleck, visited with a Kent County Sheriff Department officer, painted a large canvas and headed to the pool during Summer Fun Camp, a Monday through Thursday three-week program for kindergarten through fifth-grade students.

“Our big thing is it’s a good way to get the kids out of the house and engaged with other kids,” said coordinator Sara Schutt.

A big focus is outside play, with educational activities held outside.

Students can attend for a week in June, July and August. The purpose was to create an affordable opportunity for students, at $35 per student per week.

“It’s just fun to see your friends and do all the fun stuff we do here,” said fifth-grade student Marissa Bracewell.
