All the World’s a Stage
Let your imagination run wild in this camp for kids who love to act. Bring to life scenes from plays and even write and star in your own. You’ll sing songs, play musical games, create scenery, and debut an original work for your audience.

Art Exploration: The Storybook Masters
Young artists will learn how to express their ideas through
drawing and painting scenes inspired by the storybook masters such as Eric Carle and Dr. Seuss. “Oh, the places you’ll go!”

Art Exploration: Upcycle Fun!
Repurpose everyday materials into beautiful works of art. Think outside the recycle box!

Art Exploration: Mixed Media
A perfect program for budding artists who enjoy making beautiful messes. Get ready to cut, glue, sculpt, paint, and bedazzle your way through 2D and 3D projects.

Art Exploration: Painting
Ready, set, paint! Brush, dabble, splatter, and smear with mediums from acrylics to watercolors to puffy paint to salt. Yup—salt!

Citizen Invention: Junior Makers
Making is creative, inventive and fun! In this summer maker club, you will build ramp walkers and motorized bots, design paper circuits, explore pixel arts, and tinker with light, sound and motion in maker projects. Learn about STEM principles and modular electronics through these hands-on activities!

Comic Creators
Transform your comic creations into live works of art with the help of our imaginations, improv, teamwork, and tons of creativity. Bring your artwork, comics, and illustrations to life through construction projects, acting and directing. Join the journey!

Crazy Delicious Cooking Camp
Calling all junior chefs! Build your skills and learn cooking techniques such as making fresh pasta, creating tacos, and baking fabulous desserts! Bring these skills into your own kitchen at home and impress your friends and family!

Game Time!
Shake the ants out of your pants and get in the game. Enjoy all your favorite activities from gym and recess, such as sink the ship, crossover, tag games, and much more. No particular skills are required, but you gotta wear sneakers and you better be ready for fun!

LEGO® Constructors & Building Fun!
Design and build with LEGO®s and a variety of construction materials. Experiment, design, and build your ideas; you’ll apply real-world science, architecture, and math concepts, but mostly, you’ll use LEGO®s and other materials to build spectacular constructions limited only by your imagination.

Toymaking: Build & Play!
Enjoy exploring your creativity by making and playing with your own toys and games! Flex your art, math, writing, and creative skills by designing and creating toys. Some of the projects include slime, board games, trading cards and catapults.

Video Production: My Movie with iMovie
Create your own video from script to final production. Work in small groups, plan and storyboard ideas, film with digital cameras, edit using iMovie, and present to our Friday afternoon audience! Don’t just watch the movie; make the movie!

Video Production: The Camera Loves You!
Take control over how you present yourself! Learn how to be more camera friendly; what works on video and what doesn't. Show your talent and share your strengths! Practice self-recording, or work with a friend. Explore what it takes to become a YouTube star!

Video Production: The Whole Show!
This session will bring several components together for a whole show! Review some favorite existing videos, or create a new short film, and import it into a whole class project. We'll need script writers, news anchors, reporters, commercials, graphic designers and more! Come join the new crew!
