Dream It, Build It
Let's build together! Budding architects and engineers will have a ton of fun this week as we explore the history and science of architecture through hands-on projects. We will craft Native American lodges from natural materials, create pyramids with hidden chambers, build ancient temples and amazing skyscrapers, and design and construct modern homes. We will put it all together in our own innovative city which we unveil at the art show! Early Drop-Off and Late Pick-Up are available to extend the day from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. $35/week for either morning or afternoon, $65/week for both.

Camps for 4 and 5 year-olds
Camps for 4 and 5 year-olds introduce approaches to manipulating different materials, with a focus on the magic of discovery! Themes connect to the children’s growing interest in make-believe, humor, and the connection between what they are making and the wider world. We play with scale, textures, and include lots of picture books and looking at art- whether we are exploring jungle animals or superheroes!

Each camp has one lead teacher and one assistant.
