Please share out about the camp DEAI assessment. What was it and how did it go? What data do you think will be helpful to future programs? What would you change about the assessment if you did it again.
My name is Heather Drouse and I’m one of the Summer Programs Interns this year at the Amazeum. I’m a senior creative writing major at the University of Arkansas.
What is your favorite moment from the internship?My favorite moments this summer have included being able to bring my dog Bentley to camps. The kids always love being to interact with a live animal, and my dog absolutely loves kids. Bentley shows them all of his tricks and often dressed up based on the theme of the week in which he appears. For example, for the Mythical Tales camp, Bentley dressed up as a dragon for the kids!
This year our museum store, Curiosity Corner wanted to add a little twist to our birthday traditions: a T-Shirt contest! The rules were simple- it must be original artwork, incorporate the number 7 and have a design that incorporated the values and heart of the Amazeum. Our winner had all of these.
