Jamboree's Travel Around the World summer program art activity

This summer, kids at many Jamboree properties are traveling through foreign countries across the globe without ever leaving their Community Center. Travel Around the World is a summer program that provides kids with creative and interactive ways to learn about the customs of other cultures, enhancing their views of the world they live in. 

Our global travellers first did their research, examining maps and globes, and identifying continents, countries and states. They are learning to identify the seven continents, and creating many of the animals that inhabit them. They are studying modes of travel – planes, trains, ships, and cars, as well as key airports, passports – and even tips and tricks on packing a bag. Plus, they are discovering different kinds of currency and thinking about the kinds of souvenirs they might bring home.  

No international trip is complete without sampling the cuisine, so participating kids enjoy a specific snack every day from a different country, even learning to cook various dishes and tasting unique flavors so different from what they’re accustomed to. While traveling through Europe, they are making some delicious Kartoffelpuffers (potato pancakes). And, in crossing the huge continent of Asia, some of our travelers are learning to write their name in the Japanese script, Katakana, and cooking 葱油饼 (scallion pancakes). 

Our world travelers will begin a new adventure this fall, and would love to have you join them! Volunteers provide valuable support and have just as much fun helping with the various projects. If you’d like to volunteer with us this fall, send us an email.
