Maker Labs Classic


Instructor: Nat Davis and Staff
1 weeks
Carpentry/RC Car Machines and Mechanics: Two educational programs are teaming up to bring a full day (9am-2pm) of project based learning and fun! Each day in Maker Labs Classic, your child will have a 2 hour session of both carpentry and RC car machines and mechanics. Students may choose projects from examples, or use their imaginations to invent and design something. Bring a lunch and water bottle daily. All tools and materials are included in the enrollment fee.
Carpentry for Kids is designed to teach boys and girls practical woodworking skills with an emphasis on the safe use of hand tools. In the process of learning these skills, students will be exposed to a variety of valuable concepts, and will have the opportunity to make fun, functional, and beautiful projects to bring home.
In RC Car Machines and Mechanics students will learn to operate, maintain and repair radio control cars. Professional electric RC race cars, all tools and materials for maintaining and repairing the cars, and materials for building custom racetracks are on hand. Race car parts are interchangeable; when cars wreck or parts break from wear and tear, we have a valuable opportunity to learn mechanical and engineering concepts, through hands on experience working with tools, and electrical circuits.
Nat Davis and his team are passionate about project based learning, and have been teaching practical skills to K-8 for over 15 years.

Holly Hoppin' Summer Camp


Instructor: Holly Salamun
1 weeks
This is a mixed-age camp available for all children. These super fun summer days will have a great mix of awesome activities in small groups as well as cool choice time options (like riding a bike or roller skates!) This will be an inspiring environment where children have the opportunity to explore, create, discover and nurture their unique attributes. Children will fill their leisurely and creative days with:
-Nature walks and outdoor adventuring
-Games, sports, yoga and free play in the gym
-Music: singing and dancing
-Cooking/baking
-Arts and crafts and creative experiments
-Water play!
This is a family oriented camp, with the older children acting as mentors for the younger, with developmental benefits for both. We believe the multi-age classroom provides a strong foundation and a richer and a well-rounded educational experience. The younger campers will have the opportunity to learn from and look up to the older campers, who will intuitively lead and influence the younger. It is a wonderful camp experience for all ages!
*Wear sunscreen, bring a snack, hearty lunch, and water bottle each day.
