Adventures for the Independent Spirit
Camp Clever Owl is going to be #STEAMtastic this summer! This three-hour program is designed and led by AIS Second Grade teacher Amelia Underwood, with incoming third, fourth, and fifth graders in mind. Camp Clever Owl will be packed with engaging, creative, hands-on, and team-based learning, with new lessons each week. Campers will participate in multiple STEAM challenges throughout the week that show them just how fun and relevant science, technology, engineering, art, and math are to our world. Campers will learn the design process, develop problem solving skills, build their growth mindset, and strengthen their communication skills. Looking to expose your child to the world of STEAM? Camp Clever Owl is just the place for them to practice and refine their skills!
Calling all tinkers and creators! Find out how things work, how they’re made, and how you can build your own unique creations. In this hands-on program, campers will dissect simple machinery and processes to discover why and how they operate the way that they do. They will also utilize a variety of materials to complete projects and activities designed to ignite curiosity and develop nimble hands.
Whether your camper is a natural performer or a newcomer to the stage, this new course has something for everyone! All types of performance will be explored: improv, character development, debate, public speaking, karaoke, dance and movement, and more! This is the perfect program to build a performance skill set, practice teamwork and team building, develop interpersonal skills, and gain self-confidence.
Sustainability and the ability to repurpose materials will be the focus of this new environmental art program. Campers will discuss the importance of eco-conscious efforts and be challenged to create something new out of what would otherwise be discarded. Choosing from a variety of materials, campers will build innovative art pieces that are not only one of a kind, but also kind to the environment.
Stay sharp over the summer in math and reading in this extended program. Campers will have the opportunity to dedicate quiet time to reading as well as work with the instructor on questions, concepts, and skills. They can also individually practice math concepts to prepare for the next school year, as well as participate in math games and activities with the group. This program provides a great opportunity to work on summer assignments, get extra practice, and keep academics fresh in a relaxed summer setting. *Afternoon Programs will have new lessons and projects each week, as well as snack and outdoor play!
