Adventure Camp: Baylor Week

Baylor Week

SafeHaven kids learned about Baylor Bear pride during the third week of Adventure Camp!

"One big thing the kids were able to learn about was the prestige of Baylor's law program. The kids went to the library this week to research legal terms and the court process, and then were able to go back to the shelter and write their own court case. On Friday, we took them to the mock court room in One Safe Place, and they acted out their own case and convicted their criminal."

Bureau of Engraving and Printing

Did you know that half of U.S. currency is produced right here in Tarrant County? After starting the week at the library and the pool, Adventure Camp kiddos headed to Fort Worth to tour the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing to learn about U.S. currency and how it's made. 

Incredibles 2

One of the most anticipated field trips so far was to see the Incredibles 2 movie! Kids from both shelters loaded up to kick back with drinks and popcorn to watch everyone's favorite family of superheros! 

"We have a 7-year-old boy who has a speech delay and rarely speaks. As the movie started and then each time it got loud or exciting, he would sit up in his chair and exclaim and wave his arms. It was so nice to him come out of his shell and let himself get excited in the safety of camp." - Victoria Daniel

Family Justice Center Courtroom

With lawyers, a judge and a jury, Adventure Camp kids acted out their own case on Friday in a real courtroom located in the Fort Worth Family Justice Center. The two lawyers dressed up in professional outfits and questioned the "criminal." A congregation of "jury members" announced their verdict and sentencing for the criminal.
