Vacation Camps: April 22-26, 2019

The Park School is excited to offer VACATION CAMPS during the week of April 22-26, 2019.  We want to offer our community the chance to get the kids out of the house and actively engaging in fun, hands-on learning.  We have programs in fitness, engineering, and fashion/sewing available.

But, we understand the need for flexibility to be able to do other things too.  So each program is set up to be ONE DAY LONG.  So you can pick and choose to make a schedule that fits your family's needs!

All camps run from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and include daily recreational time and a snack.  LUNCH IS NOT PROVIDED - so each child will need to bring a bagged lunch.

Also, Extended Day Care is NOT available for these events.

Fun + Fitness

Kids will have fun and get fit as they learn that fitness is a way of life.  Enjoy games, sports, and many more ACTIVE activities while making new friends and learning team building skills too!  Get ready for soccer, basketball, kickball, obstacle courses, capture the flag...if it involves moving, you'd better believe they will do it at this camp!

COST PER DAY PER CHILD:  $50

(Kids will be divided into smaller groups based on similar ages.)


Engineering

Engineering for Kids will be joining us at Park School to offer some amazing one-day-long events for our budding engineers!  Kids who join in will be engaged in a variety of hands-on projects and learn basic engineering concepts through cooperative learning and building.  So much fun will be had by all!

COST PER DAY PER CHILD:  $60
 
Here are the details:

MONDAY, WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY:  Apprentice Engineering
Children in grades 3-5 will be exploring Electrical Engineering and VEX IQ Robotics each of these days.  Although the content area is the same, the projects and learning opportunities will be different each day - so join us for one, two, or all three days.

APPRENTICE ELECTRICAL:  The curriculum for the Electrical Engineering program is designed to introduce students to the concepts of circuit design, conductors, insulators, building, and maintenance through various hands-on activities. Students will walk away with an in-depth knowledge on basic circuits while making flashlights, bristle bots, and wind turbines!

VEX IQ ROBOTICS:  A VEX IQ class is designed to expose students to STEM fundamentals within the context of building a robot. Without even realizing it, students will begin to instinctively apply these lessons to their as they advance through the program. This hands-on process, establishes an intuitive and deep-rooted expertise that simply cannot be replicated by traditional teaching methods.
