Full-day themed camp sessions
Primary Main Camp Themes
The Wild West
As Cowboys and Cowgirls living in our make-believe ranch, we will learn all about the Wild West, pioneers, gold rush mining, a visiting real Cowboy and much more!
This camp challenges children to think outside the box. Campers will create and invent activities that encourage curiosity and collaboration, and will also learn about famous inventors of the past.
Campers will become Legendary Pirates this week as the hunt for gold treasure and make a huge ocean mural! We will also learn about real sea life and imaginary mermaids.
The Animal Planet
This is a week of discovering animals around the world through live animal shows, interactive learning opportunities, and imaginary activities.
Art and Music
A full week of what we love to do the most: creating masterpieces! We will be using a wide-range of multi-media art materials as well as dancing, singing, and playing musical instruments. Campers will also learn about renowned composers around the world.
What do you want to be in the future? What will the world look like? We will answer these questions through fun activities, using our imaginations, and expressing ourselves with video and photographs.
Children travel back to the medieval times to unravel mysteries, become knights in shining armor and beautiful princesses of the castle, and learn about these faraway lands. Royalty awaits this week!
MASS Olympics and Fitness
Olympic games offer many opportunities for physical activity and learning for kids. Let’s get fit, win gold-medals, and learn the importance of being a team player!
A special summer week based on Montessori ideals and principles for primary children and taught by a certified Montessori teacher. This week is a great way to experience a taste of the Montessori education, to transition new students, and to help current students refresh their Montessori education over the summer.
Children will learn about Mexico and its colorful culture: Mayan art, mariachi music, and pinatas, while learning vocabulary about days of the week, months, and seasons.
Campers will discover the Amazon rainforest, the coffee triangle, and will learn how to dance salsa! This adventure will also teach them about animals, body parts, and clothing in Spanish.
Join us as we learn about the Andean mountains with a week full of tango, art, and soccer! Children will also learn about sea animals, fruits, and vegetables in Spanish.
The Chopping Block
We’ve got big cooking plans this summer! Baking Boot Camp, Dips and Donuts, Snack Attack, and All American Summer Favorites are some of the topics we will cover. We will also take a trip to Great Harvest Bread Company and test our skills at making and baking bread!
Sports, Go, Sports
Campers play traditional sports and are exposed to new sports they didn’t even know existed! The coach’s goal is to help your child improve in sports and learn important life skills like teamwork, goal-setting, good sportsmanship and leadership.
The Amazing Race
Just like the TV Show, at our Amazing Race Summer Camp, campers will be in teams of 4 and will use critical thinking skills, athletic skills and team work to complete challenges, overcome road blocks and pass detours.
Writing and Photography
Campers learn about grammar and creative writing, and will create a cut-and-paste magazine filled with student photography and features on local landscapes and people.
You Gotta Have Art
The camp is taught by professional artists. During the week, your child will make some incredible art – canvas painting, clay project and drawings in various mediums as well as cartooning techniques. Friday afternoons we will showcase all of the student’s art work in an art show!
Drama and Theater
This camp is week of fun, creative and educational theatre! Campers will learn about all aspects of theatre including set/costume design, technical sound, and producer duties such as advertising. The week ends with a culminating performance on Friday afternoon for friends and family.
Campers will enjoy going off-site to purchase international ingredients, a trip to Great Harvest Bread Company and a special guest chef! Daily themes include: “Molto Italiano”, “Amazing Asian”, “Mexican Fiesta”, “French Bistro”, and “All American Summer Favorites.”
Hiking and Nature Exploration
Campers will explore area parks for day hikes (Sawnee Mountain Preserve, Dawson Forest, Kennesaw National Park – to name a few). Local Flora and Fauna will be studied and reflections and sketching will be encouraged.
Primary STEM Camp (Ages 3-6)
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.
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.
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.
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!).
Elementary STEM Camp (Ages 6-12)
This camp focuses on the hardware and coding that’s required to create machines that model living and breathing beings. Projects include mechanized contraptions ranging from robotic hands to real programmable robots using LEGO WeDo!
Freaky Forces and Elusive Energies
From the magic of magnetism to the science of sound, campers explore a world filled with energies and forces! Projects such as lava lamps, clay boats, and catapults allow children to touch, feel, and see concepts that are the building blocks of physics.
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.
Coding and Gaming
Using MIT’s Scratch computer language, campers learn how to program their very own unique games and animations. Projects include a computer program uploaded to MIT’s website and an original board game.
mBot Robotics (4th – 6th Grade only)
Campers move beyond LEGO and build a real robot – a robot called “mBot” that they take home to keep for further exploration! This autonomous roving vehicle can navigate around obstacles and provides countless hours of enjoyment and further learning.
