Clara Barton Summer Camp will run from Monday, June 17 through Friday, August 16, 2024. There will be 5 sessions as follows:

Session 1: Awesome Authors & Illustrators; June 17-21, 2024 (closed June 19)

The wondrous world of fiction and poetry will come alive for campers this session! Each classroom will explore the works of an author, illustrator or book and build a world around their themes.

Session 2: Boom! Science!; June 24-July 5, 2024 (closed July 4)

Campers will dive into science as they actively participate in exciting chemistry and physics experiments. They will concoct elephant toothpaste, create slime and silly putty, explore the properties of bubbles, and discover the science behind making ice cream! We will even have a visit from a real scientist!

Session 3: Color Burst; July 8- July 19, 2024

A  favorite and much requested Clara Barton camp staple, children will use their imaginations to celebrate the wonderful colors in our world! Campers will get very messy exploring the rainbow through tie-dye, and painting with magnets, balloons, bubbles, bowling balls and anything else our creative staff can drum up. We’ll get wild and crazy with a colorful foam party, and back by popular demand, we’ll paint a car!

Session 4: The Great Outdoors; July 22-August 2, 2024

We will spend a lot of time outdoors, as children embrace their curiosity and explore nature! Using field guides, magnifying glasses, binoculars and other field equipment, campers will learn about the myriad of insects, mammals, birds, and plant life that call our backyard home. We will be joined by Echoes of Nature and her animals for a safari “walk!”

Session 5: Fantasy: Pirates and Princesses and Ninjas, Oh My!; August 5-August 16, 2024 (camp closes at 12:30 pm on 8/16)

“Let your imaginations soar” is the motto of this session. Campers will use their unbridled creativity and collaboration skills to formulate characters and worlds from their own inspirations. From pirates to princesses to ninjas and beyond, the possibilities are infinite! Mystic Drumz will take us on a world music safari adventure!
