How would you like to invent your own story? What would it be about? Goblins? Wizards? Superheroes? Best friends? What if you could step into your story for real? With this mission, you can go as wild as you like… you can build amazing dens, go on quests, light fires, and make your own adventures into amazing stories!
Rooted in play and using den building as a catalyst for story writing, Into the Woods is designed to nurture confidence in outdoor skills, and creative writing. As the dens grow, the characters and stories develop. Using iPads, den building materials, games, props hidden in the grounds, and camp fires for stimulus and group bonding, the children will create a story they can be truly proud of. On the final day, the mission will conclude with a short performance for parents!
The children’s stories will be produced using the award-winning Book Creator app. A true multimedia app, it allows the children to use their own photos, text, drawings, audio (including their own voice), and video. At the end of the mission, everyone will be sent their story.
