Week 1 Specialty Camps 2022

Week 1

6/21-6/24//22

Ceramics – 3rd-8th AM Camp

Clay, glaze, paint, and new friends will make up this week of creative artistry as campers explore the stages of clay piece production. Did you know that Camp Heritage Oak has its own kiln? This means that as campers decorate their cups, plates, bowls, etc. with paint and glaze, all of their items can be fired on-site and ready to go home and shared with their family members! If your child loves creating pottery projects at mall-type painting stores, he/she will have a fantastic time in this class!

 

STEM- Slime JK-8th  AM Camp

Does your child like to make SLIME? Making slime is not only fun but it is also educational. Is it a solid or a liquid? What is a Non-Newtonian fluid? 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. Children will practice basic warmups each day and learn the fundamentals of track and field as they focus on the long jump, hurdles, relay races and the shot put. 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.

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.
