Potterville

This year our most popular camp is back, but with a new twist!  We’re using a Robotics/Coding/STEM theme as our campers compete in their own houses.  Each robotics/coding/STEM challenge will require campers to solve challenges throughout the week.  We’ll take the Hogwart’s Express, climb the Quidditch Tower, join the Triwizard tournament, and meet Dumbledore in the Great Hall.

Week 9: Aug. 13th - 17th

Tiny Homes - Building, Architecture, and more

Have you ever checked out Tiny Homes or micro houses?  While homes of all shapes and sizes have existed for many years, tiny homes have gotten more attention from building designers, environmentalists, and others in recent years.  They are getting new designs and modern, environmentally-minded updates.  The city of D.C. has a few called micro houses.  We think our campers could bring their creative ideas and design their own tiny home!  We’re looking forward to see what you can create!  

 

Week 10: Aug. 20th - 24th

Mysteries, Detectives, and Clues

What’s hiding behind that secret passageway? When was the last time you saw Mr. Baroody?  Is that a red herring or has the mystery been uncovered?  We invite all campers to join Baroody Camp’s detective teams as we solve mysteries and create our own!  The clues are scattered all throughout camp.  You might be the first to solve our next mystery!  

 

Week 11: Aug. 27th - 31st
