3-Week Science & Arts Camp (A)
Arts, Science, Movement, Mindfulness, Maker
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: Dino Science
Roar into the summer with dinosaur science! Kids will learn about different dinosaurs and how they impacted the environment as campers put on their excavation gloves and get dirty, uncovering fossils in a dinosaur dig. They will use their knowledge of dinosaur biology to create skeletons, and recreate the beauty of these prehistoric creatures with painted masks. We'll also focus on responsibility and empathy this week as kids learn how to be good environmental stewards and respect the world they live in, keeping it safe for generations of humans and animals to come. Get ready to roar with excitement!
Week 2: Video Game Crafts
Let's get Minecrafting! Bring your favorite video game characters to life this week as we make awesome crafts inspired by fun games such as Minecraft, Pokemon, and Animal Crossing. Kids will create colorful 3D art using techniques such as origami, painting, and modeling to make many of the characters they already love. We'll meld gaming, arts, and social-emotional learning: As they create, kids will collaborate with each other on how their favorite characters solve problems and the type of traits needed to build great character.
Week 3: Expressive Arts
Follow your art to Camp EDMO this summer! During this week, kids will explore a variety of expressive art forms. They'll be exposed to a variety of expressive art disciplines, including visual arts, creative writing, dance or movement, music, and dramatic expression. In the process, they will discover how to use their own internal experiences as catalysts for creativity and innovation. Together, we'll talk about how creative engagements are fundamental to the human experience, offering an array of benefits and opportunities for cognitive gains, emotional maturity, improved self-efficacy, and increased empathy. Express yourself this week with us!
