Scratch: All Levels

Week of July 6
$365
Recommended for campers entering 3rd – 5th grade
“Learn to Code, Code to Learn” – words from the Director of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group of the MIT Media Lab whose group developed the Scratch programming language. This session will introduce our campers to Scratch where they will begin to learn the fundamentals of Scratch programming. Additionally, they will be learning mathematical and computational concepts in a creative and collaborative way. It is our hope that after this camp session, campers will have enough knowledge to continue to independently learn more Scratch and will continue “Scratching” all summer long. Campers will learn enough Scratch to attend the intermediate/advanced session held in August. Join us!

Note: In the Middle School camp, additional programming/technology opportunities are available for students (entering 5th grade) which include Lego, 3D printing and Digital Music.

 

STEM Design Challengers

Week of July 27
$365

STEM Design Challengers offers campers the opportunity problem-solve like an engineer using the Design Thinking process. This week’s theme will focus on water craft. Friendly competition will motivate teams to build and test rafts, boats and other flotation devices using only simple materials. As campers complete various design challenges, emphasis will be placed on developing social skills necessary to work effectively in groups including listening, considering the ideas of others, empathy, and compromising. The week will culminate with our 1st annual cardboard boat regatta where campers will put their engineering prowess to the test by building and paddling full scale boats capable of transporting passengers across a pool.

Farm to Table Cooking

Week of August 3
$
Summer is the perfect time to explore the culinary arts. What better way to do so than in the company of friends. Farm to Camp provides our young culinary artists the chance to explore the world of organic farming combined with cooking.  Campers will maintain and harvest produce grown at the WFS Organic Garden to be used throughout the week. Field trips to local farmers markets will provide campers with other fresh and healthy ingredients to supplement delicious recipes. The week will culminate with a picnic lunch at our off campus garden site at Bellevue State Park.
