Summer 2024 Theme Weeks* 

Each week will feature optional activities based on that week’s theme. No camper has to participate in the themed activities.

Week 1 (June 17-21): Amazing Architects

Campers will be challenged to explore architectural design and planning using a wide variety of materials (blocks, Legos, boxes, cardboard pieces, styrofoam, paper plates/cups, plastic straws, paint/clay/collage, etc.).

Week 2 (June 24-28): Make it Float. Make it Move. Regatta Races! 

Campers will delve into such scientific concepts as force, density, pressure, mass, and weight as they explore various loose parts and designs in creating a boat that will float. The boats will be put to the test at the end of the week as campers participate in a regatta boat race. Which boats will float the longest, remaining upright along their journeys? Which boat(s) will be able to hold the most weight? Which boat(s) will weather high winds in their journey along the length of the pool?

Week 3 (July 1, 2, 3): Full STEAM Ahead!

Campers will perform scientific investigations, design and build structures in the West Yard, create beautiful art and practice their mathematical skills in a week full of challenges and fun.

Week 4 (July 8-12): ACP Ninja Warrior

Campers will put their mental and physical abilities to the test this week! They will work together to design and build a fun and challenging obstacle course for all ages and all levels of athleticism. Having fun, challenging themselves and gaining new skills on and off the obstacle course are the goals this week. Teamwork and collaboration will make this a memorable experience for every camper. Do you have what it takes to be an ACP Ninja Warrior?

Week 5 (July 15-19): Culinary Adventures

Fruits, veggies and tasty treats too. Bake it, blend it, let’s see what you can do! Campers will engage in a delicious culinary project each day and will learn basic skills in the kitchen.

Week 6 (July 22-26): Project Runway 

Campers will pave their own way in the world of fashion as they design clothing and accessories from a wide variety of recycled materials. Not only will our fashion designers gain an appreciation for upcycling, they will also sharpen their mathematical thinking skills as they utilize both standard and nonstandard tools of measurement to ensure the perfect fit. The week will culminate in our annual fashion show! See you on the Runway!
