4-Week Jr Science & Maker Camp (A)
Arts, Science, Movement, Mindfulness, Engineering, 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: ARTapalooza
Listen to your art with EDMO this week! Kids will express their creativity by using different mediums to create works of art, sculpting, painting with different kinds of paint, drawing and blending with pastel crayons, and making pinch pots. In the process they'll learn the basics of color theory, test out the functionality of different mediums, and practice their fine motor skills. Kiddos will have the opportunity to dive into their imaginations and experience art in action!
Week 2: 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 3: 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 4: Character Crafts
Take your favorite character from the screen to your very own hands! Join us in creating fun, colorful crafts representing some of the most exciting video games, shows, and movies that kids absolutely love, including Pokemon, Paw Patrol, and their favorite superheroes. Kids will create crafts based on their favorite characters and even practice mindfulness using Pokemon stress balls. Not only will campers get to collaborate and share their awesome creations, they will learn and demonstrate what it means to build great character traits such as honesty, empathy, and problem solving.
