Big Blue Summer Juniors Day Camp
Big Blue Summer knows that learning happens when it is experiential, purposeful, and contextualized. This summer, campers will experience activity areas designed to engage their curiosity. Enthusiastic specialist teachers in each area have created age-appropriate curriculum to open campers’ minds to new ideas. Counselors travel to each activity to help campers dedicate their attention to growth and learning! Rotations vary and may include…
STEAM Arts Lab: Campers explore the interactions between art and science, working on a new creation each week. They might explore physics through Calder-inspired wire sculpture mobiles, experiment with color mixing through chemical reactions, or engineer a Rube Goldberg machine. Projects focus on collaborative art-making for community.
Outdoor Adventures: From hiking to gardening and natural science to archery, campers take full advantage of Pingry’s beautiful 192-acre campus. Pingry’s commitment to stewardship and sustainability extends into our summer programming, encouraging campers to appreciate our natural environment.
Music & Movement: Performing arts activities pave the way for explorations into the many languages we use to communicate – from music notes and mathematical patterns to visual imagery and poetic voice. Campers will explore self-expression in an age-appropriate format, ranging from rhythm patterns in the Minis to music interpretation in the Senior age group.
Team Sportsmanship: Campers develop speed, balance, strength and coordination playing a variety of sports and games. Positive sportsmanship is practiced during both developmental drills and competitive scrimmages.
Campers can register for single weeks, or all 7 weeks.
