Update: We no longer offer Spring Break Camps, but your young learner can experience programs like these — culinary, art, robotics and more — at Summer University each year June through July.
Spring Break Camps are returning for the second year in a row! From April 4-8, kids will have the opportunity to participate in 4 great programs: Junior Chefs Academy, Stop-Motion Movie Making – Claymation, Tykes & Bytes LEGO® Robotics, and LEGO® Robotics Engineering & Programming with EV3.
“These camps are geared towards fun, educational learning and we offer something for every age group,” Andrea Cochran, camps director, said.
Camps are available for rising 1st-graders through 12th-graders from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and extended care will be available from 3 p.m.-6 p.m.
Early elementary students in Tykes & Bytes LEGO® Robotics will be able to explore the world of simple machines while building and programming incredible structures with LEGO® WeDo.
The LEGO® Robotics Engineering and Programming with EV3 camp is designed for 4th-6th graders. This camp is taught through a hands-on approach. Building skills in teamwork, students are encouraged to pair up in order to find creative solutions to problems. Then they will be able to develop those solutions through a process of selecting, building, testing and evaluating.
Junior Chefs Academy will also be open for 4th-6th graders. Students will have the opportunity to work in a full kitchen and prep two recipes daily. As the camp progresses, they will be taught advanced measuring, mixing, cutting, cooking and baking skills. The importance of fresh ingredients and healthy choices will be implemented.
For the Stop-Motion Movie Making – Claymation camp, available to 7th-12th graders, students will be able to create their own characters with clay and molding tools. They will learn how to create their own multi-scene movies with transitions, titles, credits, sound effects, and narration using cameras, animation, software, and video editing software.
