Raving Reporters July 23 - 27 Includes Robotics & Coding This week, our campers will take on the role of reporters! They will practice their research and report writing skills – all with a fun twist! In this writing-based camp, campers will use the writing process to produce a news article about a current event. This week will also feature other fun writing activities, games, and crafts. Finally, our reporters will have the opportunity to create a digital news segment!
We Say "Camp." Your Child Says "Fun!"
Sylvan summer camps adopt a Stealth Learning approach, so while your children are always having fun, they are also thinking creatively as they apply existing core academic skills and learn new ones every day.
All our Sylvan STEM & Academic camps are built around fun weekly themes with either a Math, Science or Writing focus.
Each day will consist of Robotics and Coding along with interactive games and activities.
Our exciting line up of other weekly themes are described below - please note the focus of each week
Week 2: Engineering Camp July 9-13 Includes Robotics & Coding Campers will become budding engineers in this fun and exciting math-based camp! Using experiments such as K'Nex, Lego, and other materials, they will learn about the mathematics of building strong, efficient structures and compete with their fellow campers to keep them standing! Campers will also have the opportunity to explore the world of coding – both electronically and in everyday life!
Week 3: CSI Forensics July 16-20 Includes Robotics & Coding This is a science-focused camp where our camper 'investigators' will come in on Monday to the scene of a crime! Our campers will work independently and in groups to collect evidence and clues as well as calculate information from our Sylvan 'crime scenes'. They will complete CSI checklists, reports, and analyses, and have fun challenging their own ideas and theories using deduction, critical thinking and fact checking using both science and math.
Week 5: Space Odyssey July 30 – August 3 Includes Robotics & Coding During this week, our budding astronauts will explore our real and imagined universe to expand their curiosity. In this math-focused camp, our astronauts will use teamwork and fundamental math skills in order to complete challenges to ensure their spaceship returns home to Earth safely. They will face obstacles involving asteroids, space weather, and solar storms! This week will also feature exciting science experiments, games, and crafts.
Week 6: Environment and Earth Science *August 7 - 10 Includes Robotics & Coding This is a science-focused camp where our campers will explore the Earth and the Environment and their connection to it. Our Eco-campers will enjoy working together to create weather systems and will examine the beauty and power of nature. Through exploration, discussion and experimentation, they will learn the importance of balance in the natural world and will examine ways to protect it. They will also be challenged to suggest creative ideas to reuse and recycle everyday items for function and fun! * 4 - day week
Week 7: Movie Making Madness August 13 - 17 Includes Robotics & Coding In this writing-focused week, campers will explore the behind-the-scenes fun of movie making! Students will learn about different styles of creative writing, and use the writing process in order to produce a small portfolio of work, including their very own original script! Students enrolled in this camp will also have the opportunity to try their hand at stop-motion animation, improvisation, and visual art!
Week 8: Exploring Ancient Structures August 20 – 24 Includes Robotics & Coding In this math-based camp, our curious campers will be going back in time to revisit some of the world's most famous cultures, architectural structures, and iconic artifacts. Campers will use mathematical skills to create to-scale replicas of the Pyramids, Parthenon, and more! They will also have the opportunity to compare our modern-day numerical system with ancient ones and learn about Greek, Roman, and Egyptian monetary systems!
Week 9: Smart Super Heroes August 27 - 31 Includes Robotics & Coding Our MARVELous campers will have a fun filled week learning about fictional and real super heroes. In this science-based camp, they will explore the science behind the most iconic super heroes and their unique superpowers and will have a chance to imagine, create and design their own super hero world and characters! Campers will partake in missions to explore scientific concepts such as gravity, velocity, speed, and sound.
