Fourteen children from throughout the area combined science with super hero fun at Park Osagi on Wednesday, July 24.
The "Super Hero Science Day Camp" was the second of four hosted by the Douglas County 4-H. Alexandria hosted the first one. Other camps will take place at the Brandon School on Wednesday, Aug. 7 and at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on Friday, Aug. 16.
The camps are for children in kindergarten through third grade and run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
At Park Osagi, the students made super hero shields, bookmarks and masks. As part of an adventure initiative, they also played challenging course games and "Lemonade,'' a game that combined charades, running and chasing.
One of the science lessons was making a "fire snake" by mixing together sugar and baking soda and safely lighting the mixture on fire.
Anna Mundahl, a 4-H summer intern with the Extension Service, was the leader of the event.
The fee is $10 per camp. Stop into the Extension office for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 320-762-3892.
