Our summer program will look somewhat different this year and we are striving to provide fun and educational activities for students to engage in virtually.

During the month of June, credentialed elementary teachers will lead virtual sessions for families with rising first through sixth level students. Students can engage daily in themed hands-on activities led by teachers in a virtual group setting. Breakout sessions will allow students to collaborate with one another to generate ideas and share their learning. Enrollment will include “kits” with the supplies children will need to create projects alongside their teachers and peers during two-hour morning sessions. Materials kits are included in the $125 weekly tuition fee. A minimum of 5 enrollments are required for each session to make.

What do Khufu, Hatshepsut, Tutankhamun, and Cleopatra have in common? They are all rulers of an ancient civilization that left behind stunning artifacts, breathtaking structures, and timeless stories that continue to strike our imagination and pay homage to the ingenuity of the human mind and hand working together. We’ll learn more about these rulers, the lives they led, and the evidence they left behind.

Frank Lloyd Wright said, “The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.” Our architecture camp will give kids who are curious about architecture the chance to explore the elements of architecture and test out their own design ideas. Our budding architects will put together small model cities, construct skyscrapers with whatever they can find at home, and design and build the ultimate home fort.
