There are 9 weeks of classes. We have two different options:
SINGLE DAY camps meet Mon-Wed and ONE WEEK CAMPS meet Mon-Fri
Our SINGLE DAY CAMPS meet 3 days a week, Mon-Wed from 9:30am -1:00 pm. Students register for individual days- sign up for all three days one or two weeks, or come every week on Monday- your choice. There will be the same theme for all three days of class, but each day will be self-contained- you may come Monday only or for all three days Mon - Wed.
The morning session is our "STEM CLUB" program. Classes will include in depth science activities and experiments as well as art activities that tie into the science theme.
In the afternoon, the kids will rotate between three different classes- music, art, and more science experiments. *Students ages 8-12 will receive beginning guitar instruction during the afternoon session- a guitar is suggested for this class. A limited number of guitars are available for student use but for students who will be attending multiple weeks we suggest purchasing an acoustic guitar to also have at home.
For all SINGLE DAY camps, tuition is $32 for the morning "STEM CLUB" session and $25 for the afternoon music, art, and science session.
Our ONE WEEK camps are special Mon-Fri sessions with more elaborate themed activities. For these classes, students will register for the full week. Single day options will not be available during these weeks because activities and experiments may be carried over between days. Students may choose the full day camp or just morning or afternoon sessions. The activities are different in the morning and afternoon.
Prices are the same for most ONE WEEK camps. The full session 9:30-3:30 is $250. You may also choose to attend $150 morning session 9:30-1:00 pm or $125 afternoon session 1:00-3:30 pm.
BEFORE AND AFTER CARE IS AVAILABLE FOR AGES 5 AND UP FOR THE ONE WEEK CAMPS. Before care: 7:30-9:30 am $40/week
After care: 3:30-6:00 $50/week
A Sailor's Life For Me! Single Day camps Mon-Wed
Come sail the seven seas!. We’ll voyage to some exotic ports- but be careful, pirates may sail in these waters! Campers will design the ship’s flag and select a name for our ship. Afterwards, they’ll start the voyage by learning what’s needed to be a part of our crew! We’ll learn about knot tying, pulleys, and navigating with compasses- we’ll even make our own compass. We’ll discover the reasons why boats work- we’ll learn about buoyancy, the significance of fresh water and saltwater, and use what we’ve learned to create different types of boats and see which designs float best. We’ll learn some history of sailing, including the mystery of scurvy and how the case was solved of who did and didn’t get it. We’ll also explore creatures that live in the ocean, and even dissect a starfish (optional activity.) In art, we'll create fantastic fish and watercolor ocean scenes.

In this exciting class, students will
explore rocks, the earth, and people who lived long ago through archaeology and
geology. Young paleontologists will dig
for dinosaur bones and make their own fossils. We’ll learn about the layers of the earth and the rock cycle, and learn
to identify rock types including igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic by
looking at a variety of rock specimens. We’ll
enjoy fun activities such as making crystal gardens and of course volcanoes-
look out, it’s going to erupt! We’ll
find out how archaeologist learn about ancient civilizations from long ago and
explore ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. In
art, students will make mosaics and pottery inspired by ancient works for art
and paint their own rock pet. It’s a
blast to the past your kids will love!
Mindstorms robotics sets. They will also be exposed to the various sensors that the
robots can use, such as light, touch and sound. Your child will also learn to build
and program their robots to perform mini-tasks. In addition to the robots, children will look at beginning computer programming using the SCRATCH programming language for children. This class is for students ages 9-14.
In this class we’ll explore the wonders in our own backyard! We’ll look at plants and how they grow, examine plant cells under a microscope, and create our own compost. We’ll look at the small animals found in the backyard including earthworms and caterpillars, create hypothesis and experiments, and learn about Linnean classification. We’ll also learn about weather and environmental concerns affecting our surroundings. Come and get your hands dirty
Chemistry can be defined as the study of matter and energy and the interactions between them. In this class, children will learn important facts about the universe through exploration, experimentation, and fun! We will begin with an overview of fundamentals such as molecules and atoms and the phases of matter. Once these basics are covered, we'll explore different topics through fun and hands-on experiments. Kids will enjoy experimenting with multiple types of slimes, goo, and playdoughs. We'll talk about the science behind the unique properties of the various types of goo and learn about different types of molecules and how they interact. Kids will bring home samples of their slime!
This class is designed to introduce children to a variety of different art techniques and materials. We'll explore acrylics, watercolors, pencils, oil pastels, and other materials. We'll create paintings, mixed media projects, drawing activities, and sculpture. Students will be introduced to a wide range of experiences, resulting in open-ended outcomes. Studies of artists and illustrators will also be included. The activities in this class will help foster a lifelong love of art and the creative process!
