Main Camp Themes (Ages 2-10)

Week 1: Aloha Summer

Welcome to camp! Campers will make new, lasting friendships through ice breakers, art projects, science experiments, and more. We will explore beach creatures, analyze weather patterns, and make surf boards!

Week 2: Survive It

Can your team survive it!? This week is all about the importance of teamwork. Campers will have to work together to complete different activities such as tug-of-war, noodle tag, minute to win it, and a scavenger hunt.

Week 3: Sports Center

We are stepping up the plate, swinging the club, and scoring touchdowns this week! The campers will learn about and play a variety of different sports, from football to soccer, while incorporating math and physics.

Week 4: Out of this World

We are blasting off and exploring the planets and stars this week. We will make moon sand, look at constellations, and even eat astronaut food!

Week 5: Party in the USA

We are hitting the road and visiting exciting destinations across the United States! Campers will explore landmarks, cultures, festivals, natural habitats and more!

Week 6: Creative Campers

Charcoal drawings, clay, still art and portraits are just a few of the different art techniques that campers will be exploring this week. Campers will learn how to use different materials to create amazing works of art, while learning facts about famous artists.

Week 7: Character Counts

The six pillars are: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. CHARACTER COUNTS! This week in camp the campers will learn the importance of each pillar and participate in activities based around each characteristic.

Week 8: Community Helpers

Campers will learn the importance of different careers that hold our communities together. We will write thank you letters to our local firefighters and police offers and raise money for a local charity.

Week 9: Safari Adventure

Jump in the jeep and get your binoculars ready, we are going on a safari! We will travel to the African Savanna and learn interesting facts about the beautiful wildlife that roams there.

Week 10: We Will Rock You

Show off your talents in our singing competition this week! Campers will create bands and sing karaoke with friends. We will also create music with common classroom materials and learn about different instruments.

STEM Camp (Ages 4-5)

Week 3: I Wanna Be…A Sports Scientist!

Campers will discover the scientific explanations behind athleticism and develop an appreciation for the science of sports. Projects range from determining the optimal ball trajectory to score a field goal in football to making a Q-Tip Skeleton.

Week 6: I Wanna Be…A Marine Biologist!

From coral reefs to sharks that “sleep,” campers explore the unique, the strange, and the perplexing features of underwater life. Exciting projects include turtle shell backpacks and octopus sock puppets (socktopus!).

Week 8: I Wanna Be…An Archaeologist

Students learn about archaeological tools and identify optimal locations for digs. From artifacts left on land to historical treasures buried at sea, our mini-Archaeologists learn the hidden science behind this intriguing career.

Week 9: I Wanna Be…A Techie!

Topics include coding, robotics, and electronics. Students study the anatomy of computers, code a caterpillar (yes!), and look into the future of technology. Projects include programming PCs using ScratchJr and building simple circuits.

STEM Camp (Ages 6-10)

Week 2: Engineering A Metropolis

Campers explore what it takes to create a metropolitan area by designing their own city! From street layouts to power source identification, campers learn about the challenges that architects and engineers face when building cities from scratch.
