Summer camp: It’s a staple of American childhood as a way to fill up some of the summer’s time off from school, and add a dimension to a child’s development. Camp Curiosity takes it up another notch. It’s summer camp reimagined.
Here, children can actually design and code games in the online world of ROBOLOX, a pretty cool program your child’s peers will either want to join in on or be envious of. They can also learn to build a skateboard from raw materials, or explore the world of cooking as an edible science. For those seeking a more physically challenging activity, how about ziplines through the treetops? Also check out the Circus Camp, Woodshop, Drawing and Sculpture, Exploring Flight and Lights Curtain and Action camps.
The reimagined program will offer camps that will pique your child’s curiosity and put them in a position to have fun and learn at the same time. In addition, the camp offers eight separate days of travel adventures where adults and kids will explore new places together — perfect for a parent’s day off or a special day with a grandparent or sitter. Choose from adventures such as: the American Girl Doll store in NYC, the Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania, LEGO Land in Philadelphia, kayaking or paddleboarding, a scavenger hunt at the Smithsonian and more.
Camps are available for children in grades Pre-K to 9th grade. The final schedule is being fine-tuned: check harford.edu/campcuriosity for details. Registration begins March 18.
