When the students are finished building, they will link the physical to the digital world as students design their own comic strip story out of their LEGO creation. The LEGO Education WeDo platform, powered by LabVIEW, redefines classroom robotics, making it possible for primary school students ages 7 to 11 to build and program their own solutions.

General athletic drills designed to develop footwork, coordination, and strength will also take place. Campers can also expect to spend some time in the classroom for "chalk talk" sessions.

    Note: This is a non-contact camp.

    Water Polo Camp

    The Water Polo Camp is developmental in nature, designed to teach basic and intermediate water polo skills and fundamental techniques. While we encourage athletes of all water polo experience levels to attend, this camp is specifically designed for athletes that are deep water safe. By the end of the camp, our goal is to give each camper training with the following skills:

    *Offensive techniques with and without the ball
    *Defensive techniques on and off the ball
    *Team play


    Campers should also expect to spend some time participating in "dry land" drills, which will teach foundational principles outside the distraction and added challenge of the pool. For most drills, campers will be separated by ability and will be instructed based on skill level.Items to bring each day: water bottle, towel, swimsuit, sunscreen, athletic shoes for dry land.
    We hope to provide a fun water polo experience!

    Prerequisites: All participants must be able to swim 50 yards freestyle and 50 yards backstroke and be deep water safe.

    Preparation for Pre-Algebra

    Are you looking forward to taking Pre-Algebra next school year, but not sure if you're ready? Are you feeling uneasy about how you will do next year in math? Then you're in luck. This course will be perfect for you. During this week long process, students will refresh and review previously learned topics, along with new concepts that are fundamentally all things Pre-Algebra. This course is geared towards students who might want extra practice with understanding these critical foundational concepts, before entering into Pre-Algebra in the fall. Ultimately, there's no better way to feel prepared for this next level in math, than to spend a week really diving deep into the concepts you're going to build on for the next nine months.
