Summer Camp

Investigate! Innovate! Invigorate!

Summer at Inly provides an opportunity for children to investigate nature, art, and theater, innovate with new tools and technologies, and invigorate their bodies and minds while learning new skills and making new friends.

Session 1: June 25–29

Preschool Adventures: Up in the Air
Ages 3–5  •  $400
Using elements of nature, children will explore and create art and objects that are inspired by air and wind. Kites, paper planes, and parachutes will all be part of our tinkering and learning experience.

No Bones About It!
K–2nd Grade  •  $400
Our group of sharp-eyed explorers will investigate the habitats around Inly for sightings and signs of animals without bones. There will also be some visiting boneless critters. We will create a garden for the helpful pollinators, be on the lookout for some uninvited invertebrates, and engage in crafts and games related to our theme.

Isadora Duncan Dance
Rising K–6th Grade  •  $400
The Isadora Duncan technique is a unique style of dance, inspired by the sculpture, myth and ideals of ancient Greece. Danced to classical music, the technique is one of the primary roots underlying modern dance and uses natural movements, free flowing energy and imagination. In our workshop we will explore the myths of Artemis and Atalanta, culminating in a final performance.
Group Leader: Colleen Quinn
 
App Design
Ages 9–12  •  $400
We will kick start into the summer by creating and coding apps. Campers will work together through the full design process from brainstorming ideas to coding the final product. The process will be hands on and collaborative as we discover what it’s like to be technology creators, not just consumers.

Session 2: July 9–20

Preschool Adventures: Down to Earth

Fly, Float, & Roll
Grades 3–5  •  $800
If it travels, there’s a good bet we’ll build it and test it during this two week session. We will explore physics and motion in several quick projects that will have campers thinking scientifically without even knowing it. Rockets will be launched. Cars will be built. Boats will be floated (literally and figuratively).

STEAMing into Nature: Playing, Experimenting, and Exploring in the Outdoor Classroom
Ages 8–11  •  $800
Children will play, explore, build, and innovate with STEAM in all of our outdoor spaces. Along with planting and caring for the many gardens and greenhouse, children will have the opportunity to harvest and sell the Inly organic produce each week. The farmer’s market will also include products (jewelry, toys, soaps, etc.) they make from natural materials. And as part of their garden work, children will brainstorm and design innovations that will benefit the gardens or other outdoor spaces. Each day also includes opportunities to write and perform plays and musical numbers, to construct forts, to explore the Discovery Trails, and play games. And by the end, the children will see the surprises and opportunities the outside world has to offer.

Level Up Village: Global Inventors and Global Programming
Grades 4–6  •  $800
During this two-week session, Inly campers will be matched up with global partner students living in another country.
