Entering grades 1-5
Calling all witches, wizards, and muggles! Experience the fun of Hogwarts with a week full of Harry Potter activities. Don’t worry, we know there’s no magic outside of Hogwarts, but we got SPECIAL permission from Professor McGonagall! After our sorting ceremony, be prepared to go to Ollivander’s Wand Shop for your own special wand, Charms class to practice spells, and Potions class to make your own concoctions. At the end of the week, the house with the most points will win the House Cup!


Entering grades 2-5
Go “behind the scenes” to learn how some of your favorite magic tricks come to life and master your own bag of tricks with a professional magician. Before you know it, you will be entertaining your family and friends! Each young magician gets a set of magic tricks and props to keep.


Entering K-grade 5
Prepare to engage your imagination and natural creativity! Our inspired artists work with a variety of materials such as paint, clay, sand, pastels and natural materials from the surrounding environment to create and develop fun projects, acquire new skills and express personal style. This is the camp where creativity thrives!


Entering K-grade 5
Fun discoveries and hands-on learning are in store as we mix Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math into this creative and exploratory camp. Kids work both individually and as teams to tackle complex challenges employing elements of science, engineering and design. Campers gain a better understanding of how basic scientific properties affect the world around us.


The curriculum and instruction for the following camps are provided by the Montclair Learning Center:

Entering K-grade 2
Campers are introduced to various robotics concepts such as simple and motorized machines by building and programming robots with the LEGO® Education WeDo™ Robotics Construction Set. Have fun using motors and sensors and learning basic engineering concepts such as pulleys, belts, gears and levels.


Entering K-grade 5
3, 2, 1…Blast Off! Shoot for the moon by applying basic physics concepts (angles, trajectory, aerodynamics, thrust, Newton’s Laws) and the engineering design
process in hands-on projects such as designing, building and launching your own rockets.

Entering grades 3-5
You are the engineer! Build your own remote control car, animal bot or electric guitar using the LEGO® Mindstorms® NXT Robotics Construction Set. Build
and program robots using motors and external inputs such as touch, sound and light sensors. Use your new skills to meet challenges such as following lines, processing sound or navigating a maze.


Entering K-grade 2
Develop S.T.E.A.M. skills while having fun with Star Wars! Build your own droid using the engineering process, code your own virtual Star Wars galaxy, make fun Star Wars science experiments (make your own lava slime or star play dough), and have fun with some Star Wars themed math games.


Entering grades 2-5
Develop critical thinking skills, improve academic performance, and build sportsmanship, self-confidence and discipline. Experience a fun mix of formal instruction, practical exercises, and playing opportunities. Beginners learn the basic moves and strategies of the game. Intermediate and advanced players take their games to the next level by learning more complex strategies, practicing tactics, and preparing for and participating in chess tournaments.


Entering K-grade 5
Explore the history, myths and legends from medieval times to the ancient civilizations of the Greeks, Romans, Inca, Egyptians and Chinese. Learn historical and cultural facts while understanding the principles they applied to their infrastructure. Build your own inventions out of everyday materials.

Entering K-grade 5
Create the blueprint of your dream house, skyscraper or city, then design it in 3D online, build, and decorate. Campers use engineering skills to add some electricity to their creation.

Entering grades 3-5
Explore different techniques while using creativity in a fun way. Use amazing brushes and symmetry to sketch and draw beautiful artworks. Campers create short animations and learn to alter images to create surreal effects.


Entering K-5 grade
Campers are introduced to video game design where they will combine their creativity and storytelling skills with coding and strategy in order to create their world and characters. Design original games that are fun to play, not too easy to win, not too hard to lose and pleasing to the eye!
