For the past few years, I've had a reputation at the camp I work at for being a "cube master," which my boss has been obsessing about.

Today they celebrated the 35th birthday of the camp. Guess what my boss decided to give every single camper in honor of it? Camp Rubik's Cubes! And not the $0.50 crappy keychain ones. Real rubiks.com custom cubes. Just though I'd share/pictures attached.

You have a great boss! I worked for the British Council and a few years back they were giving out cubes to potential students. I was in tears begging for one, but because I wasn't a student they said NO! Can you believe it? I was why the students were there! Anyway, I enrolled my daughter in a class, but with the condition that I was given two cubes! I got my cubes and the joke was on them. Since I was staff, she got her classes for FREE!!!

I wish my bosses were so nice!

Kind? Do you know how many cubes I had to solve today for kids? Lol.

When she announced to the camp that everyone would be getting cubes, my friend (who can solve them too) turned to me and said, "Why does she hate us?"

Think of it this way, you're bound to get quicker at it!

I don't know how legal it is, or what the reaction would be, but I was teaching kids to solve the cube many years ago and used OHT's of Denny's solution. It is very visual and easy enough for a 7 year old non-english speaker to understand. Maybe you could pass out copies to the kids.

I just got back from an engineering camp at North Arizona University. Literally 1/4 of the other campers could cube fairly well. I was the fastest though.
