How Does Your Garden Grow? for campers ages 3-Kindergarten

Young children will experience the wonders and excitement of cultivating food.  Join WSSL, Early Childhood teacher, Valorie Helt, as we will spend time planting, tending, harvesting and cooking some delicious herbs and vegetables.  The children will also create some art while “playing with their food”.  Circle time and stories will round out our garden theme for the week.

Woodwork Camp for incoming Grades 4-6

Become a woodworking apprentice in the WSSL wood shop and learn the basics of woodworking. On our morning walks we will gather fallen branches to work our magic on. Saws, axes, rasps, and files will be our tools of choice. By the end of the week, campers will have created their own tool box to continue practicing their woodworking skills!

Designed for music students in Grades 6 through 9, this camp will focus on music of the Renaissance era, performed in small chamber ensembles. We will explore the musical styles of the renaissance, and will incorporate activities focused on composers, dances, and instruments of that time period. Players of violin, viola, cello, and recorder should feel comfortable reading music on their instrument to join the camp. Other instruments or voices will be considered with instructor approval. The week will culminate in a performance on Friday afternoon.

This music camp is designed especially for string players (violin, viola, and cello) in Grades 4 through 6. We will spend our week playing traditional fiddle tunes from Ireland, Scotland, and the United States. The emphasis will be on learning tunes the traditional way – by ear – and learning styles and embellishments common to each genre. Our days will include snack, lunch, storytelling, and crafting time in addition to our musical endeavors. Some music reading experience will be helpful, but not necessary. We will finish the week with a hoedown together with our friends and family.
