Prospect Sierra is pleased to host several sessions of camp on our campuses this summer! Beginning with our colab camps, your rising 2nd-6th grader can choose two weeks of camp with our amazing Prospect Sierra faculty. Each week has a unique theme, and tons of amazing tech, making, design, and science activities. Campers will be in small rotating groups so they can work with each of our camp leaders throughout the day.
And there’s more! We’re also offering drama, basketball, pokemon, magic, and movie-making camps. See below for details and register online.
NEW! What a Wonderful World: Poetry and Meditation
July 31-August 4
Come join our enrichment class instructor Cintra Harbach during the summer and write in exciting poetry forms including acrostic, alphabet poem, calligram, and more! Practice a walking meditation outdoors to develop awareness and inspiration. Make small books to hold your poems.
NEW! Movie Making
Do you like movies? Do you like to make your own movies at home, or want to learn how? Then come to this camp where you’ll talk about how to use techniques for storyboarding, camera operation, light, sound, and editing to produce fun home videos on iMovie with our very own 5th grade humanities teacher David Allen. Plenty of time will be devoted to making fun movies!
NEW! Magic: The Gathering
Come and join our 5th grade humanities teacher David Allen to summon mythic creatures, cast magical spells, and vanquish your foes on the battlefield! Magic: The Gathering, a popular fantasy trading card game, engages players in problem-solving, strategy, tactics, and fun! In this friendly environment, students with all levels of experience can learn basic rules, deck building strategies, and battle tactics with ample opportunity to test their burgeoning Planeswalker skills. (Magic cards will be provided for students who don’t have their own decks, but those who do are encouraged to bring them.)
Love Pokemon? Want to design your own Pocket Monster and do Pokemon-themed activities with Charlotte and Kathleen? Come to camp and enjoy all Pokemon all the time! While you won’t be playing the actual game, you will be making videos, creating Scratch animations and games, geocaching, learning the history of the creatures you love so much, and doing other exciting activities that will not evolve you into a Snorlax.
July 3-7 (there will be camp on July 4)
