The summer program at Rowanberry School was designed to provide an unhurried, child-centered alternative to traditional children’s summer camps. The daily rhythm will include circle games and songs, time for inventing, messing about, and play in the garden and treehouse. A wholesome organic snack will be served daily. Children will have the opportunity to share their work at the end of camp. Why “Maker Camp”? Because the work we are doing can not be classified as strictly art. It does include traditional arts and crafts, but also has a strong design element.
SESSION 1: July 10TH-July 14TH
How do tiny robots like to play?
Children will make their own “bristlebot” (homemade hexbug) and work together to create play spaces for their creations. Using basic engineering skills and reuse materials, we will create pathways, bridges, racetracks, and whatever else we dream up. This is one of our most popular camps.
SESSION 2: JULY 17TH-JULY 21st
Rowanberry’s Robotics Studio will provide the children with an opportunity to continue work with bristlebots, hexbugs, and their environments. This year, inspired by a longtime camper, we will add scribbling machines to the mix. Reuse materials will also be available for whimsical creations.
Maker camp is Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Best suited for children ages 3-10 (alumni ALWAYS welcome!) $250 for one week or $225 for both weeks.
