Date Morning 9 – 12 pm 
July 16-20 Creative Writing (ages 8+)

Our ability to create is one of the greatest forms of expression given to us as human beings. We have a natural desire to communicate our ideas and share what we create with our imagination. This Creative Writing Camp will give your child the tools to exercise this skill using words and the written language. Using fairy tales as a teaching guide, students will greatly expand what they are able to produce and portray from their imagination.

The teacher will help each player learn new skills so to be better gamer. Each game is packed with hours of fun and opportunity for competition. The objective is to have as much fun as possible, learn new techniques and meet new people while doing an activity many people love.

Come and join us as we learn about the different peoples and cultures of Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, and South America through their stories, music, art, games, and food.

July 23-27 Strategy Board & Card Games (ages 8+)

Strategy Games play a huge role in teaching us critical and logical ways of thinking. These types of games help develop the mathematical side of our brain through making decisions and keeping track of how many pieces we have and where they are positioned, what we should do to win the game, and the consequences or risks we must take against our opponent(s).  In this class, we will focus on learning strategies for classic games like Chess, Risk, and Settlers of Catan as well as card games such as Hearts and Pinochle.

July 30-Aug 3 Martial Arts & Fight Choreography (ages 8+)

Martial Arts, like dancing, is an excellent way for growing your body in strength and dexterity. It challenges both your body and mind with its focus on precision and patterns for the most effective way of defending oneself. Not all martial arts are about self-defense however. A wide form of martial arts that is now used is known as Movie Martial Arts. This is a form of martial arts used for performance and show that allows the artist to demonstrate their skills without needing to be in an actual fight. In this class we will be going over a bit of both kinds of martial arts. This will give them the basic knowledge of self-defense along with the ability to use what they have learned in a constructive way through creating their own fight scene and sharing it in a performance.
