Alternately, students from kindergarten to fifth grade can brush up for the coming year or boost Trivial Pursuit scores with a morning Academic Friends Camp, focusing on reading, writing, and math in small intensive workshops.
Full-day Sports Galore programs zero in on sportsmanship and teamwork with a different pastime every day, including basketball, badminton, and room-temperature freeze tag. The all-day Fishing program sees anglers going fin to fin with catfish, bluegill, and bass, and afternoons bring release of both fish and campers into the water to foster natural gill development. The Digital Photography Studio program introduces students to the photogenic world of Photoshop and professional lighting equipment, granting them experience in framing portraits and nighttime snapshots of cookie thieves.
