The Curricula Will Include
Some Camp Themes
Hot Air Balloon Festivals
There are hundreds of Hot Air Balloon Festivals every year. This camp experience will use these festivals as a launching point for exploration. Each day we will visit a new region and explore a new culture. Throughout the week children will learn about the history and engineering of hot air balloons and make their own paper maché hot air balloon to take home.
Samurai's and Tsunami's
These camp experiences explore Asia, and more specifically, The Ring of Fire. We explore plate tectonics, volcanos, earthquakes, and tsunami's. In addition, we use these uncontrollable natural disasters as a gateway to discussing human emotion, war, and the history and philosophy of ancient Samurai.
San Fermín Festival
While many associate the San Fermín Festival with "The Running of the Bulls" there is a lot more to this week long festival. During this camp children will be exposed to the Spanish language, create their own model rocket while also learning about the science and engineering of rockets, participate in El Struendo (The Big Roar), make their own cabezudos (big heads), and make and try foods unique to Spain.
Kite Festivals unite many regions and cultures around the world. During this week of camp we will explore a different region each day that participates in an annual Kite Festival. Children will learn about each culture through the arts, literature, history, and geography. In addition children will create and build their own kite throughout the week.
Olive Tree Charms that were made by campers during the San Fermin Festival camp. They were provided an olive taste test and learned about the history of olives and Spain's position as the leading distributor.
