WEEK THEMES 
 

July 8-12 - Week 1: Summer Time With Textiles

Lead Guide: Megan

Where do our clothing, bedding, furniture and other textiles in our life actually come from? This week's camp will allow kids to delve into the world of soft textiles and their origins. We’ll learn how natural fibers come from, how they’re created and what we can do with them. Camp activities will include examining the plants and animals they come from, natural dyeing techniques and methods, weaving fibers into cloth and finally sewing cloth and fabric (both by hand and with sewing machines) into beautiful handmade creations that kids adore. 

July 15-19 - Week 2: Intro to Ballet

Lead Guide: Vicky

The week will engage both first time dancers and those with some experience in a fun and disciplinary way using technique and musicality. The session will also include guided video observation of ballet dance, proper safe stretching, restorative rest poses, and creative movement time.

July 22-26 - Week 3: Fun With Arts & Plants

Lead Guide: Blythe

During this immersive nature week, we will be working with items grown from both the school's garden and the surrounding wild, creating arts and craft projects with nature to bring home and use. We will also learn about the health of a plant and plant care, and enjoy the "fruits of our labor"!
 

July 29 - August 2 - Week 4: Outdoor Living / Hiking Skills

Lead Guide: Blythe
This week we will spend lots of time outside learning about building shelters, using different methods to cook outdoors, fire building/safety, map reading, what to pack on a hike, how to handle different emergencies while outdoors and of course the Leave no Trace philosophy.  The culmination of the week will be a longer hike where we can put our learned skills to practice.
