Our theme this summer is…


Do It For Yourself To Believe

Sometimes you have to do it for yourself to believe that you can actually achieve whatever you set your mind to do. It’s about creativity! And empowerment! These are two of the most powerful assets we can support in our young students. The Studio School Summer Camp is specifically designed to do just that. Enrolling your child(ren) in this camp not only builds their skills, but also gives them a real camping-like feeling–like the sort of camping experience that makes you feel refreshed and ready to take on bigger challenges in life and in school. After camp at The Studio School, students are inspired to learn while loving the whole process of learning.

Throughout each day, students will have time to break away from building and use our rope swings, explore our edible garden, play an instrument, eat a snack, or take some time to just relax. This balanced approach is by design and enhances student performance and student enjoyment.

Session I: Building with Wood
July 9 – July 20, 2018; 9:00am – 3:00pm
For: Ages 6 – 10 years-old
Min/Max Group Size: 7-15

In this session, students will get their hands on lots of wood (from blocks to two-by-fours). We will use design challenges to focus our work, but there will be plenty of space for creative approaches to building with wood. We will facilitate students’ use of real woodworking and design tools as well as methods for engineering real solutions that are useful. In addition to improving design and building skills, these experiences will edify students’ sense of agency and inspire their future initiative to take on challenges with joy.

Session II: Building with Stories
July 23 – August 3, 2018; 9:00am – 3:00pm
For: Ages 6 – 10 years-old
Min/Max Group Size: 7-15

In this session, students will start with the hands by designing their own stamp(s), which will be used in the design of the cover for a book that they will bind by hand. The stamping and bookbinding will be underlying skills for the storytelling process. The books can be used to capture ideas, but the handmade approach connects to a history of artisan methods for many forms of art, including story. Next, students will go through the creative writing process using an array of methods (from writing pen-to-paper to improv exercises that include props and the whole body). Toward the end of the session students will experience the dramatic impact of story through story acting exercises that challenge them to see the story through by going into it. This session offers students’ an intensely literary experience (supporting reading, writing, and communication skills) that will inspire the way they engage future content presented in any context.
