STORY & ART Camp (June 29 – July 2) (Grades K-3)
Offered for students Kindergarten-3rd grade, STORY & ART Camp is the most fun way to get in your summer reading! Each day, Miss Shaye will read aloud a story and then students will make a craft to go along with it. We won’t be reading the same books as last year – it’s going to be a brand new lineup! If you’ve enjoyed Afternoon Art with Miss Shaye episodes, you will love this camp. STORY & ART Camp will be from 1:30-3:00, starting on June 29 and ending July 2.

MERMAID & PIRATE Camp (July 6 – 9)
Ahoy mateys – another brand new camp is coming this summer! At MERMAID & PIRATE Camp, you don’t have to choose between being the captain of a pirate ship or a mystical mermaid.

This just might be the camp we were most excited to announce to you all! At CREATE A CASTLE Camp, each student will receive their own plain wooden castle and two pegs. We will spend four days painting the exterior, applying wallpaper and flooring, designing dolls, and creating furniture. Will your child create a castle fit for a courageous knight, a daring ice queen, or a colorful unicorn? That’s up to them to imagine!

STEAM Camp (July 20 – 23)
Our final camp of the summer is none other than STEAM Camp! This camp focuses on science, technology, engineering, art, and math. We’ll make scribbling robots, color changing slime, levees that withstand a “hurricane” and SO MUCH MORE! This camp was a HUGE hit last year and we can wait to bring it back for another summer! STEAM Camp begins on July 20th and ends July 23. It is offered for Kindergarten-3rd Grade (1:30-3:00) and 4th Grade-8th Grade (3:30-500).

What happens if we can’t meet face to face?
We know that right now, a lot of plans are uncertain. While we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to have in-person camps this summer, we are positive that our arts camps will be happening one way or another. If we are not able to be together this summer, we will offer our camps virtually. We will assemble all the supplies in “Camp Kits” for parents to pick up at Wintergreen prior to the camp date. Miss Shaye will create a private classroom Facebook page where she can stream live broadcasts and post videos of craft tutorials each day. We will also have ZOOM classroom meetings so students can share their artwork with each other. It may be a little different than our in-person camps, but we are confident we can still capture the magic of our summer camps virtually.
