Kiara is super excited to go to Camp Firefly for the summer and be with all her friends, including the rest of Fort Builders, Inc. And this year, she can’t wait to enter the camp-wide CREATE contest. One lucky team will win the prize of building something from scratch, using all the DIY skills they show in the competition.
