Main Camp Themes (Ages 5-7 & Ages 8-10)

Week 1: Camp Out in the Garden

Throughout the week the children will be learning about, soil composition, photosynthesis and more. While gardening they will be using math skills through measuring the progress of the plants by how much they are growing from week to week or counting the flowers on each plant. We will also be taking a trip to the Botanical Gardens! Campers will gain a sense of purpose and responsibility, along with communication and team building skills.

Week 2: Engineering

Campers will learn how to construct and discover how things work, along with problem solving skills. The children will work together to build an activity wall in the garden and to create their own bird feeders. We will take an exciting adventure to Lego Land to use their new engineering skills! Children will see how disciplines of math and science are relevant to day to day life.

Week 3: Wild West

The children will learn what the Wild West era was, where it took place in America and when it began and ended. They will be visiting the Booth Museum where they will see first hand artifacts from that era. They will also be going to Farmer Sue’s Art Barn to experience how to care for horses and other farm animals. The children will walk away with a better understanding of the colorful wild west.

Week 4: Introduction to Coding

STEM Theme! This is the class for any kid who has ever played a video game or watched a cartoon and wondered how they were made. We introduce students to Scratch, a coding language created by MIT that is designed to help kids learn how to code. This class combines technology and creativity as kids learn the basics of coding and how to apply their knowledge to make video games and animations. The more they learn, the more details and effects they can add, which makes them want to learn more. This is a class for the beginner coder and no previous experience is necessary.

Week 5: Camp’s Got Talent

Campers will find their inner SUPER STAR at Camp’s Got Talent. Campers have a chance to showcase their own unique talents and prepare themselves for a performance at the end of the week. They will walk away with a sense of pride and accomplishment.

Week 6: Science of Building

STEM Theme! Students get the opportunity to explore how science impacts how the world around us works. Some of our interactive group activities include building LED necklaces and foil boats, as well as studying the biomechanics of how a leaping lemur leaps and the chemical reaction of a volcano eruption. This module will open students’ eyes to the inner-working of the world and get them excited to learn more!

Week 7: Compute to Win

STEM Theme! We show students how numbers work in different areas, such as games, puzzles, and even art! Through individual lessons and group activities, we ponder math riddles, figure out number puzzles, and explore math-inspired art. This is a fun and interactive way to dig deep into the world of math. In this module, students don’t labor over math problems. Instead, they explore math possibilities.

Week 8: Nature Camp

Inspires creativity. Being outside encourages children to use all of their senses and visualize what they want to see. The children will explore the Chattahoochee Nature Center and The Reptile Wrangler will be making an appearance.

Week 9: Captivate and Accelerate

STEM Theme! Students continue applying every aspect of STEM to take their building skills to the next level! Through games and group projects that spark their imagination and sharpen their critical thinking skills, this module shows students what they can do when they have the power of STEM. Examples of the activities we do include constructing mega marble runs and testing marshmallow structures in an earthquake simulator. This module challenges and captivates young minds and lets them see what they can accomplish with STEM.

Week 10: End of the Summer Bash

The children will reflect on the friendships they have formed and feel a sense of independence and empowerment. We will be having a car wash, a visit from Kona Ice, fun at Central Park, an Ice Cream Social and a SUMMER BASH PARTY!
