Join the ADVENTureā€¦ NEW Virtual Programs for July 2020

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL CAMP PROGRAM?
Our camp sessions will be taught in real time over online meeting platforms with necessary cyber security measures.

Camp sessions are several hours long with a mix of direct instruction, interactive activities, group discussion and independent activities.

Many camp sessions will have supply packs or materials available for pickup (or registrants can gather their own supplies).

WHY GO VIRTUAL?
Adjusting our format to virtual programs allows us the flexibility to provide unique summer learning opportunities for students but keep our campus facilities closed as we prepare new classroom layouts and organization in preparation for the best protocols for the 2020 - 2021 academic year.

SO, TAKE ADVENTURE CAMP TO THE LAKE HOUSE, TO THE AUNTā€™S HOUSE, OR TO THE BACKYARD AND OUR INSTRUCTORS WILL GUIDE STUDENTS THROUGH A WIDE VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES TO KEEP HANDS AND MINDS BUSY THIS SUMMER!
