In this camp we will learn the properties of polymers and explore the science behind making different types of slime. Glow in the dark, Thermochromic, Clay and Sand slime… just to name a few, each slime a new effect! Use critical thinking, math and measuring skills. On the last day campers will develop and make their own unique slime.

Husky Track Stars – JK-3rd AM Camp
Strength, stamina, and spirit will forge the path to a medal at this beginning track camp.

Our coach will encourage each camper to build endurance and stamina as he/she races to the finish. The camp will conclude with an Olympic Track Meet on Thursday where parents can cheer on their favorite Camp Heritage Oak Olympians. Campers should bring water and wear sunscreen.

Guided Reading Gurus – JK/K AM Camp
This class is designed to build a framework to develop reading fluency, comprehension, and phonics skills. The tailored small-group lessons will develop the reading process supported by independent reading strategies. It will provide a wonderful environment for students to receive differentiated instruction to improve their reading skills in preparation for the upcoming school year.

Writers Workshop – 1st- 2nd AM Camp
This writing class will not only strengthen campers’ skills, it will also foster a love of writing in a fun, encouraging environment. Because this class will focus on writing using a voice, campers will draw inspiration from creative projects done inside the class such as painting and crafting. Each student will also keep a writing journal which will be used daily. Comparison writing activities from the start of camp until the end will allow parents to see the wonderful progress made by their campers.
