Kid's College is cancelled this summer due to COVID 19.

Four weeks of content-rich curriculum! Each week your child will enjoy PE, art, music, theatre, dance, and academic blocks all focused around that week’s theme. We strive to embed play-based activities, positive management, and STEM initiatives into all that we do. Character Education and Leader in Me lessons are embedded in our mixed age group houses that foster leadership skills, build relationships, and result in lifelong friendships.

Register in confidence knowing we conduct background checks and implement Darkness to Light training with all our camp personnel.


Our theme for summer 2020 is Get Moving! as we embed all forms of transportation in to our daily content. We'll study planes, trains, automobiles, rockets, boats, hot air balloons, and physical fitness as we learn about the principles of motion, physics, and more. The camp operates on a positive house-based model where each participant will become part of a caring and supportive group of peers all driven to achieve positive goals and bond under a common theme. Weekly team building experiences will create powerful connections to help promote positive self-esteem and participation. 

Weekly focus/content of instructional blocks: 

Select the one-week experience (or as many as you like) that you think your child would enjoy or send them for all four weeks. Weekly themes and order are subject to change.


Week I: (June 1-5) Boat Week: 

Buoyancy and stable designs will be the focus of this fabulous floatation week.

Week II: (June 8-12) Plane Week:  

Paper airplane designs, contests, and principles of Bernoulli and lift will be the focus of this high-flying fun week.

Week III: (June 15-19) Rocket Week: 

3-2-1 BLAST OFF! We’ll be designing, building, and launching rockets this week while studying propulsion and safe descents.

Week IV: (June 22-26) Hot Air Balloon Week:  

Up, up, and away! We’ll study convection currents while designing our own balloons for release.  

You can register for all four weeks, a single week at a time or select any combination that best suits your needs.
