K-2 BON VOYAGE
Pack your bags because we’re setting sail on the S.S. Pinecrest for a dream cruise vacation through the Pacific! Imagine the sites we’ll see as we chug across the vast ocean all the way from Alaska to the land down under. After a proper bon voyage party before we hit the high seas, we’ll drop anchor in some of the most magnificent places and see what there is to see – the wildlife, the landmarks, the music, the food. Get ready for an unforgettable journey!
K-2 GARDEN SPROUTS
Have fun learning about seeds, sprouts, stems, flowers and garden critters in this nature-based camp. With stories, games, science, crafts and cooking, you’ll grow, play with, make, experiment and enjoy the world of plants and their allies in the garden.
K-2 PRINCESS PARADE
Hear ye! Hear ye! Attention all princesses! You are hereby invited to join us on a royal journey to explore the world of princesses and discover the kingdoms of some of your favorites. We’ll have all of the trimmings of a proper princess including our tiaras, of course, and practice our very best etiquette, learn of our royal duties and discover what makes a princess royal on the inside. The king and queen await your arrival so dust off your tiaras and get ready for a week fit for a princess!
K-2 RAINFOREST EXPLORATION
A wealth of the most colorful and unique wildlife makes tropical rainforests chock full of interesting things! Fly above the emergent layer, swing from the canopy, climb in the understudy, and crawl through the forest floor as we explore tropical rainforests. From flora and fauna, to animals and insects, we will learn all about this amazing environment, its inhabitants and what we can do to preserve it.
K-2 SILLY SCIENCE
Gummy worms, dancing raisins, shrinking marshmallows, flying toilet paper, bouncing bubbles…what do all these things have in common? They are all super silly, but they can all be explained with serious science! If you are ready for some ridiculous chemistry and frolicking physics, then come join us for many exciting experiments and hilarious hijinks. And don’t forget to bring your funny bone!
2-6 PROJECT EARTH
Our big, beautiful planet needs your help! Together we will explore ways to save the Earth and the environment both at school and home. We’ll learn new ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle in our daily lives and learn about sustainability. We’ll be super-savers of water and energy and use solar Legos to explore renewable energy. We can give everyday trash and recyclables new life as we make them into usable items and great works of art! Make a difference this summer, and join Project Earth as you do your part toward saving the environment.
3-6 ART STUDIO
Unleash your creativity while you immerse yourself in the studio arts: drawing, painting, sculpting, printing and more. You’ll enjoy a myriad of artistic media using a variety of materials – charcoal and clay, pastels and paints, inks, wire, thread and more! No experience necessary – suitable for beginning artists, as well!
3-6 ENGINEERING 101
How does a dam withstand the crushing pressure of a lake full of water? How does a suspension bridge resist the forces of wind and traffic? Why can we walk in the shadows of mammoth skyscrapers, drive through tunnels deep underground and sit beneath soaring stadium domes, confident that these giant structures will not collapse? Investigate these questions and more and build great structures using all kinds of materials from straws to sponges, playing cards to paper and toothpicks to tape as you become the engineer.
3-6 GOTTA DANCE
Can’t sit still when the music starts? Whether you’ve studied dance before or like to shake it up in your living room, this class is for you. It combines many styles of dance to give campers a fun and exciting week of moving and grooving to your favorite tunes! Spend the week learning ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, line dancing and even how to choreograph. Whatever your style, this is a week of guaranteed fun and exercise, with a performance on the last day of the class.
3-6 SCHOOL OF ROCKS (& FOSSILS)
Dig deep in this class and learn about the science that lies beneath your feet. From the basic types of rocks to mineral identification to the slow – but sometimes earth-shaking – movements of the tectonic plates, you’ll explore the world of geology. With hands-on activities, you’ll make your own rocks and fossils, learn about fault lines and earthquakes with bread and jelly, investigate seismography and more. Rock on!
3-6 SUMMER AT HOGWARTS
Leave the Muggle world behind and enter a magical world filled with wizards, house elves, cauldrons, invisibility cloaks, floo networks, Marauders’ Maps and the elusive Golden Snitch! We’ll make wands and magical pets, concoct potions and cast charms, visit Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, sample chocolate frogs and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans and, of course, play a game of Quidditch. Not even He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named could spoil the fun at Hogwarts. Note: This class is offered in the morning and afternoon, but please only sign up for one session. It is the same class offered twice.
