July 10
Focus on Sciences:

Kids will get their hands dirty while participating in an outdoor education program to improve their environmental literacy and emotional connectedness to the natural world. They will learn how to sweep net for insects in the prairie and do some pond dipping for aquatic invertebrates in Lake Sagatagan.

July 17
Focus on the Arts:
This session will consist of an introduction to theatre as we spend the morning making new friends, engaging in storytelling activities, and working together to develop and perform original mini-plays. We will then venture “behind the scenes” with a backstage tour of Saint John’s theatre spaces. All skill levels welcome! The second block will bring us into the woods for an introduction to orienteering and hiking through the trails of Saint John’s University.

July 24
Focus on Cultural Exploration:
The first block will be an introduction to cultures around the world, and students will participate in cultural activities! Following this session, students will head over to the kitchen where they will learn basic cooking skills and prepare lunch together. Lunch will also include a traditional food item.
