Morning Kids’ Summer Camp

For students who have just completed grades 2, 3, 4 and 5

The Kids’ Summer Camp is a three-session package designed to keep our campers thinking and moving!

East Asian Fusion

Laura Williams, Instructor

If you’re looking for an unusual, travel adventure, this creative, cultural experience is sure to blend the best of the Orient. From crafts to cuisine, calligraphy to costumes and maybe even karate, this interactive, hands-on session will encourage campers to think and create as they immerse themselves in the daily life and traditions of East Asian cultures. So bring your sense of fun and imagination to this exciting workshop designed to develop creative thinking skills in an Asian atmosphere

Survival 101

Beth Hummel, Instructor

As a tour ship passenger you find yourself shipwrecked on a desert island and soon discover that you are not alone! The island is also inhabited by a group of castaways who, with the exception of a two-way radio that barely works, have lost contact with civilization. Together you try to find a way off the island but when the radio is suddenly misplaced, everyone starts to wonder! This light-hearted mystery provides an opportunity for scientific fun as well as a creative thinking and team building experience!

Junkyard Parts: Reimagine, Rethink, Reinvent

Jackie Sheaffer, Instructor 

In this unique workshop, campers will have the chance to “visit” the junkyard of time and see what our disposable society has left behind. Activities will focus on lost arts and traditions and how to rethink and reimagine those ideas and objects that have long been forgotten. This exciting workshop includes a mixed bag of hands-on experiences that will encourage campers to reinvent and hopefully, realize that with time, everything old can be new again.

Afternoon Special Topics

 All sessions are open to students who have completed grades 2, 3, 4 and 5 and will be held daily from 1:30 - 3 p.m.

This year students will have the opportunity to follow their morning camp with a brown bag lunch from home and one of our afternoon special interest topics.  Students can choose from:

 Junkyard Art

Jackie Sheaffer, Instructor 

In the spirit of going green, this exciting arts and crafts workshop extends the morning workshop and focuses on a series of creative projects designed around recycled materials. It’s all about possibilities and what an imagination can do with everyday objects. Drawing, painting, building and sculpting all combine to give kids an experience with an extensive range of art concepts and skills and an awareness of unusual ways to reuse and recycle

Puppets Plus 

Janet Latchford, Instructor

The art of puppetry serves as a catalyst for this interactive workshop designed to give campers the opportunity to stretch themselves in a more creative and expressive way. Through guided play and the manipulation of a variety of puppets and props campers will combine the process of animating inanimate objects and the art of storytelling to create a complex, magical theatre performance. This workshop gives campers a safe, secure environment to step outside themselves and hopefully, discover something new!
