Process Art

Teacher: Jennifer Hamilton

In our Process Art class we plan to celebrate the experience of creative discovery through different artistic methods. The final products will be unique to each child and the focus lies in the fun of the creation rather than the completion of a set craft. Kids are invited to get messy and let their imaginations loose as they have fun creating. Please be sure to dress your child appropriately as projects will be messy.

Birds in Flight

Teacher: Nadia Kachelreis

As a bird sanctuary, Camp Catalpa will be a fitting classroom for us as we learn all about our feathered friends. Along with learning to identify birds by sight and by listening to their calls, we'll tackle a different topic such as nests, wings, feathers, beaks, eggs, migration, principles of flight, etc. through an assortment of creative projects, experiments, and/or games. Come dressed to get messy while learning all about birds.

Group Games

Teacher: Tiffany Jones

In Group Games, we will have fun playing different games.  Badminton, soccer, frisbee, and tag are all possibilities, but so are plenty of other creative ways to run, jump, and play.  Game on!

STEM Challenge: Part 2

Teacher: Kristen Simpson

In this class, students will work in teams and compete to achieve the best results with unpredictable STEM and STEAM challenges each week.  The twist is that they will have to use items which they can source for themselves outdoors, though they may have a limited selection of bonus materials to use to satisfy the rules of the challenge.  After the allotted build time is up, teams will put their wild creations to the test. There will be all new challenges this semester, along with maybe a couple of favorites from last semester with an added twist.  This class is a stand alone class and participation in the fall STEM Challenge class is not a requirement for taking part 2.
