Summer Programs Week 1: June 1-4

 

SECRET AGENTS

Grades JK-K
Amy Kilgore
8:30-11:30 a.m.

 

Is your child ready to be the next great secret agent?! They will be once they join Agent J. (Aka: Ms. Collyn/Ms. Justus) this summer to start their training! Their mission, if you choose to accept it, includes crafting their own secret agent identity, building ingenious spy gadgets, learning to read top-secret messages, analyzing fingerprints, dodging lasers, finding hidden clues, and more. By the end of the week, campers complete their personal agent dossier and go on a top-secret mission, using all their awesome new secret agent skills, earning their Double-0 status!

 

 

YOGA, MINDFULNESS, AND CRAFTS

Grades K-5
Elizabeth Cantrell
8:30-11:30 a.m.

 

I invite your children to join me as we practice mental and physical activities that can help us help reduce stress, strengthen attention and focus, and better resolve inevitable conflicts as they arise during these unprecedented times. While adhering to social distancing each day, we will share an opening circle activity, learn yoga, make a craft, practice mindful techniques, and connect to the natural world. 

 

 
SEWING CAMP

Grades 4-12
Lauren Dowell
8:30-11:30 a.m.

 

Come join us for four days of sewing bliss in this short but sweet sewing camp.

Both intermediate and beginner seamsters are welcome. Beginners will have the opportunity to complete basic projects such as a pillowcase, a nine-patch pillow, and a small stuffy. Intermediate seamsters will be introduced to more difficult concepts including the “Love Monster“ pattern from Fluffmonger patterns and some more complex quilt piecing.  All students will have the option of making pajama shorts. Shorts are a great summer project that can be repeated many times in many different fabrics. Yes, they will have pockets. All students, whether intermediate, advanced, or beginner are welcome to do any project after passing their “driving test“ and completing a few straight lines.

Please indicate whether your student is a beginner or an intermediate student. This will help us prepare kits for expected projects.

 

TITAN LACROSSE CAMP (INDOORS)

Grades 3-5
Tyler Whitchurch
8:30-11:30 a.m.

 

This camp will provide an opportunity to learn the basics on the offensive and defensive end of the game while in a fun and creative environment. We will focus on catching, throwing, ground balls, and specific dodges that are accustomed to the game. As we move away from stick work, we will cover 1 on 1 and build to 3 on 3 game situations. The only required equipment will be a stick. It is recommended to bring your own, but the school can provide them as well. Due to field maintenance, this camp will be held indoors this year.

 

 

MOUNTAIN BIKING

Grades 5-8
Jon Coole
8:30-11:30 a.m.

 

Middle School science teacher, Eagle Scout, and avid outdoorsman, Jon Coole will lead you on a biking exploration of Cherokee Park trails (or, as some have called it, the Church of Sticks and Stones). After working up a hearty appetite and thirst, mountain bikers will find a few yummy stops on Bardstown Road. Mr. Coole will also lead a mechanical tour of the gears, chains, and other moving parts of your amazing two-wheeled transportation. Each participant is required to have a bike that can navigate the trails and a helmet to protect them should the adventure take the rider off course.
