This camp (like Sew Beyond the Basics) is for the young home sewer who has access to a sewing machine, basic knowledge of how to use it and is excited to learn more. Attendees need to have either taken Sew Easy, So Fun (week 1 or in a previous year) – or already have some experience using and threading a sewing machine. Together with Ms. Collyn Justus, campers will continue exploring various fun patterns and projects, develop additional troubleshooting techniques as well as best practices for cutting, pinning and designing. Projects will include some frivolous, some functional and some fashionable. Due to the unique needs of this camp, it is best if campers can bring their own sewing machine to use. If a camper cannot bring a sewing machine, parents can make a special request to use one of the few teacher provided shared machines. Space is limited, sew… be sure to sign up early!

Coding

Teaching young people to code early on can help build skills and confidence and energize the classroom with learning-by-doing opportunities.” Collegiate teacher Bill Flinn takes this challenge to heart as he leads students through the thought process of coding, as well as offers many opportunities for students to insert their own creativity and imagination in their coding creations. Focusing on the Java language, students will create fun cards, games, and web page designs, all while strengthening their problem-solving skills and creative thinking.

Global Online Academy 6/18 – 8/3
Grades 9-12
$250 Collegiate Fee
$750 GOA Fee

Global Online Academy is a not-for-profit consortium of 50+ independent schools from around the world. Started by a group of independent schools looking to bring the benefits of online learning to their teachers and students, Global Online Academy prepares students for a global future by providing new, modern ways for students to learn and teachers to teach.

Students take Global Online Academy (GOA) courses for credit at Louisville Collegiate School and the course is reflected in the student’s schedule and transcript. GOA allows schools to expand what they offer and help students test their passions in ways typically unavailable on a single campus. The courses are interactive, instructional, and experiential. All GOA courses have asynchronous components (students participate each day on their own schedule) and synchronous components (when students collaborate together or work with their teacher, generally using video conferencing software).
