3-Week Jr Science & Arts Camp (A)
Arts, Movement, Mindfulness, Engineering, Maker, Science
Due to local COVID-19 regulations, this site currently requires campers to consecutively attend multiple weeks. With this restriction in mind, we have grouped together some of our exciting themes to give your camper a package they are sure to enjoy.
Week 1: Books & Boogie
Emotion is energy in motion, and that's why we want to focus on boogying down! This week, we'll have a fun-filled time exploring stories, emotions, and creative expression through movement. Kids will dig into stories that incorporate motion, experiment with creative and interpretive dance, and build skills in communication and emotional awareness. From oral traditions and improv exercises, kids will learn to express and interpret emotions and their impact in their lives through words, sound, and movement. Get ready to dance and wiggle this week!
Week 2: Crafty Chemists
We can’t have chemistry without the element of color! This week, kids will test out their curiosity with fun, hands-on experiments filled with chemical reactions full of color. Each day will build on their understanding of atoms, starting with crafting a candy atom. As we widen our lens, they'll explore how the atoms in a molecule determine the type of reaction it produces and learn the chemistry behind the world of colors. While experimenting, kids will collaborate in order to try out new ideas and will problem-solve to make new solutions. Put your goggles on and grab an apron as we dive into the world of atoms, molecules, and reactions this week!
Week 3: Empathy Innovators
Open your hearts and minds with EDMO as we create and engineer with empathy! Kids will get to showcase their maker skills while crafting projects that are intended to make people smile. They will use the design thinking process to brainstorm, blueprint, and construct a work of art or a useful invention to make the lives of their loved ones easier. After a year filled with stress and disruption, spreading love and joy has never been so essential in our world. This theme places special emphasis on social and emotional learning, with the intention of creating more connected communities. Engage with others and make the world a little brighter this week!
