2019 Summer Mystery Camp

Who borrowed the Blue Jay? Help us solve the mystery this summer!
Students of Seaford School District Elementary Schools….we need your help! This summer, join us at the Blue Jay Summer Mystery Camp to help solve the case of the missing Blue Jay mascot!

We will be meeting once a week on Tuesdays at Blades Park and the Seaford Library for 6 weeks as we try to figure out which principal took the blue jay mascot, which school they took it to, and for what purpose. Each week, you will solve puzzles to receive clues, along with many fun mystery themed activities.

For every week that you show up, you will earn points, and these points can help you get an invitation to our final session which is sure to be packed full of fun and games as we find out the answer to the mystery of the missing blue jay!
