HALF DAY; Morning (Entering 1st - 3rd), Afternoon (4th - 6th*)

Campers will be introduced to the basics of coding with multiple types of robot programs during this camp. Students will learn visual coding and program different robots while learning new coding skills. Students will also have the opportunity to produce a coded plan for these bots to navigate obstacles, retrieve gear, and maneuver their environment. This camp is great for children to develop problem-solving skills and more.  *Prerequisite to Robotics 2.0

June 19 - 23, 2023

IMAGINEERING: Andrew Henry's Meadow

FULL DAY (Entering 3rd - 5th)

Campers will be introduced to several different fields of engineering as they design a model of their own unique house.  They will learn how to build simple machines and other necessary contraptions for their house. Students will also learn the importance of creating, testing and refining their projects to solve real-world engineering challenges while enhancing critical thinking and problem-solving development skills that will benefit them in various academic areas.

June 26 - 30, 2023

AWESOME ARTISTS

HALF DAY;  Morning (Entering 1st - 2nd), Afternoon (Entering 3rd - 5th)

This week is all about expanding a child’s love for art, getting creative, and learning about different artists.
