Week 1 (June 6-10) – Adventures in Space: Be ready to blast off for a week full of adventure! Packed with STEM activities, this hands-on camp will give campers the opportunity to experiment with and test ideas related to constellations, the solar system, gravity, rockets, and more.
Week 2 (June 13-17) – Farm to Table: In our journey from “Farm to Table”, campers will learn what it means to grow, harvest, raise, and preserve food. Campers will rediscover lost skills of farming and use science to see nature at work in our food. Campers will bring home all the natural goods they crafted at the ‘farm’ to share!
Week 3 (June 20-24) – Super Citizens!: “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” Ralph Waldo Emerson’s words set the stage for this week of camp. Campers will be encouraged to embrace the mindset of being a ‘Super Citizen’. They will look at those who have made a difference through art, service, and the various ways people practice their culture worldwide. Throughout the week, campers will become real life superheroes as they consider ways to serve communities both locally and across the globe.
Week 4 (June 27-July 1) – Myths, Marvels, and Martial Arts: Eastern Asia has given us many treasures to behold. During the week, campers will explore the myths, marvels, and martial arts from this corner of the globe. Activities include ancient fine art forms, karate, mindfulness, and more. Campers will be challenged artistically, physically, and mentally.
