Giddens School Summer BLAST Camp 2011 Pre-School - 5th grade Field Trip every Friday for K-5th grades Minimum of 2 week enrollment
June 27 - July 1 Critters and Creatures Slither, hop, crawl, swim, and climb on over to Giddens for this fantastic camp that explores a plethora of animals and creatures. Expect visits from professionals who work with all sorts of animals! Study the movements of an ant colony, feel the spines of a porcupine, create working feathers, sort the eggs of different kinds of birds, and hunt for the marks of beavers and turtles and more on our fieldtrip to the arboretum.
July 5 - July 8 Mixed Media 3-D art, tie-die, recycled materials, ceramics, paints, wood, metal, music, and colors will be mixed, hammered, taped, and pulled into amazing works of art - all of which to be created by elbow grease and a truly eclectic assortment of arts supplies.
July 11 - July 15 Words Alive We love to read and speak and shout and feel the power of words. We can read and write ourselves into and out of limitless situations. With the magic of our senses, words will move, shake and roll us, make us giggle and build our strength, and stretch out the creative potentials of the world around us as we tromp and push, whisper and yell our way through this powerful week of exploring words.
July 18 - July 22 Comedy and Drama Let the show begin! Actors and designers, costume makers and weavers of stories, we want your talents for this camp. Our week will be overflowing with excitement, stories, paint, ideas, anticipation, and preparations for a Friday performance that is sure to knock the socks off of all who attend!
July 25 - July 29 Exciting Experiments What bubbles, bumps, floats, clicks, disintegrates, expands, melts, and changes color? This week at camp, of course! Put on your goggles and prepare to study, question, hypothesize, and experiment each and every day of this jam-packed camp of science wizardry, with just a dash of salt, pennies, agar, and helium. (Note: All experiments will be structured and appropriate to each age group in camp.)
August 1 - August 5 Music and Movement A daily dose of international beats, rhythms, dancing, stomping, and rapping will spin our bodies and imaginations this week! Join us for an adventure in all things music and move-move-moving.
August 8 - August 12 World of Numbers During what was our most popular camp last year, you’ll be thrilled at the places we discover and imagine. Spend a week playing with numbers in stories, movies, music, games, and more. Under the hat? Running through water? Scavenger hunts with equation clues? Yes please! We’ll even end the week with whipping up our own batch of edible equations.
August 15 - August 19 Sports and Games Will it be you or a ball that slides, rolls, and bounces each day? Explore obstacle courses that take you through tunnels and water, enjoy games that are played with popsicles and games where you can only move your eyes, and challenges that make your brain sparkle and your body jump: that’s what we promise for sports camp, Giddens style.
