Session 1: June 22–26, 2020

Preschool Adventures: Trolls and Fairies
Ages 3–5  •  $400
Come explore the magical forest, wooded paths, and brilliant Sunflower Hill as we gather natural materials to create fairy houses and troll dwellings. Moss becomes a carpet, twigs transform into a roof, pebbles pave the way for little feet. What does your fairy or troll look like? Can it perform magic or does it have superpowers? We are only limited by our imaginations! Bring your pieces home or leave them in the woods for our fairy friends and trusted trolls, it’s up to you! Combined with our water play, outdoor adventures, and fun art projects, this is going to be a very magical time!
Group Leader: Georgie Gladdys
Creep, Glide, and Soar!
Entering Grades 1–3  •  $400
When it comes to moving around, animals seem to have super powers!  How does the hawk soar looking for prey? How does the snake slither under the green brush without any legs? Why doesn’t a water bug sink as it skates across a fresh puddle? Join us as we explore animal locomotion. From hollow bones to wavy scales and beyond, we’ll search for critters on the move as we hike through the wooded forest, explore Sunflower Hill, and take in the sky above. We’ll round out our days with camp games and art creations.
Group Leader: Ellyn Einhorn
Let’s Put on a Show!
Entering Grades K–3  •  $400
Campers will be immersed in the magical world of musical theatre. Join us as we explore singing, acting, choreography, theatre games, and set painting. This fun-filled week will lead up to a fabulous, culminating performance!

Design Challenge
Entering Grades 4–6  •  $400
Start the summer by thinking outside of the box to solve a new design challenge each day. We’ll use the da Vinci Studio, the Inly campus and the I4 process to explore challenges like building bridges, creating robot mazes, and more. We’ll use the low ropes course to practice collaboration and problem solving and apply those lessons to our work. Are you ready for the challenge?

We’ll think like scientists as we use water and air to propel rockets into our colorful sky.

Campers will also venture off campus to perform some intense, no-nonsense research at Canobie Lake Park(!) where we’ll explore some of the engineering that goes into producing all the thrills!
