The Nature of Art
Create pieces of art with items found on campus, do a nature scavenger hunt and create a magical spell book, build a birdhouse from sticks and twine, make a twig loom, leaf-imprinted clay necklace, and more.
Learn the skills needed to survive in the outdoors with limited supplies. An outdoor classroom filled with adventure and problem solving. Learn how to use a compass, identify foliage as you navigate our campus. Thursday enjoy a farewell sing and campfire cooked treats. Friday will consist of Field Day events.
You're Bugging Me!
Attract bugs you want in your garden and repel those you want to keep out. Get up close and personal with some amazing bugs as you learn about life cycles and habitats. Get creative when building your own brushbot and other “buggie” art.
How Does Your Garden Grow?
Campers will learn how to plan a garden; knowing which vegetables are friends and foes is key to a plentiful harvest. Care for a garden and start a sensory garden on campus.
Let's Join the Circus!
Campers will work on their agility skills, dexterity, and play fun carnival type games that they create. Getting inspiration from Cirque del Sole to design and create a fantastical mask.
Ready, Set, Go!
July 30 – August 3
Design, build and detail your own race car to show at the GLTW Auto Show and then race it to the finish line for Friday’s GLTW Cup race.
Campers in grades 1st through 3rd will focus on programming using LEGO WeDo 2.0 to explore, connect and create. Campers in grades 4th through 6th will be working with Little Bits, learning as they collaborate to explore ideas, investigate, design inventions that solve real world problems, and share their inventions with their peers.
Design and Build
Practical applications of math will put your design, thinking, and engineering skills to the test. Transform your design into reality while transferring an outdoor space. Have fun while leaving a lasting gift to be enjoyed by your friends throughout the years.
Sky's the Limit
Build a water rocket to launch to the sky, put a catapult to work by knocking down objects. It’s all about physics this week of camp.
