Online Classes/Camps

Online Summer Camps

Our online camps are engaging and creative as students get busy using their hands, brains and bodies during meaningful activities. They will have time to connect with friends and thoughtful teachers who love to empower children to think creatively and consciously. 

Each teacher will lead 1 hour of camp, with two 15 minute movement/snack/bathroom breaks during the each session. 

We will post a supplies list here on June 1. Most items are things typically found at home. If we need you to have anything specific, we will drop it by your house.

Gardening 10:00-10:45 – Mindy of Dig Down Deep Garden Education will lead children on an adventure exploring the wonder of the garden through stories – how can we work with the magic of the garden? Along the way children will learn about garden science, lifecycles, plant parts and their own senses – how they give us critical information about the world.

Art 11:00-11:45 – Kids love getting creative with Joan Green of Green Art Labs. They’ll get to express their garden stories and more through art making with reusable materials. No need to buy anything new…we can use things you have around the house. Each day we’ll have a different project inspired by the garden or theater. We’ll even make some of the shadow puppets the kids will use in their theater class.  

Break 11:45-12:00 – We will lead a movement activity, or you can get a snack or use the bathroom during this time. 

Theater 12:00-1:00 –  Campers will get moving with a taste of everything theater as Courtney Corey of Theater Arts School of San Diego  leads them through building a shadow box stage to learn the parts of a theatre, stage and lighting. They’ll use shadow puppets to create improvised and scripted scene work, develop character voices, and even rehearse and perform their stories, and so much more!
