The weeklong program for rising 4th-8th graders will run from Monday through Friday. Surprises and other events may be planned for Fridays! Camp will take place, rain or shine. Students should come dressed for outdoor activities in the morning. Sturdy shoes (no flip-flops), bug spray, sunscreen, and water bottle are mandatory.
Outdoor Adventure: Start out the day with active Adventure! You will do many activities, such as high/low rope challenges, experiences on the pond with kayaks, getting to know Middle Tennessee’s flora and fauna. Rainy day? No problem. Climb the rock wall, participate in team-building activities, play unique games and problem-solving activities.
Conversational Chinese: Learn basic phrases, greetings and vocabulary. Learn about China, Chinese history and modern culture. Do Chinese art, such as paper cutting, calligraphy, painting, and traditional children’s games.
Mind Benders: Once you try one, you won't be able to stop! Levels from beginners to college age. Oral math and science brain puzzlers along with fast-paced activities to peak your interest and exercise your higher level thinking abilities.
LEGO Robotics: Dive into the world of Robotics. Using the LEGO Robotics program, students will build robots and use software to plan, test and modify sequences of instructions from a variety of real life robotic behaviors. They will also gather and analyze data from sensors using graphing software. This is an exciting way to introduce a young student to Robotics and to bring all the aspects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) together in a fun and interactive activity.
Art Imagination: If Picasso had lunch with Andy Warhol tomorrow…what would they discuss? What would a collaborative piece of artwork look like from the two? Considering the cultural, social and environmental impacts that influence artists, students will create a series of artwork merging the past with the present. Popular techniques such as zentangle-ing and mixed media will be infused into the recognizable characteristics and methods of Warhol and Picasso styles. A minimum of four pieces of artwork will be created which will together tell the story of a modern day luncheon of two iconic artists.
Writing: Take time to work on your writing skills and explore the written word. Talk with Tennessee’s Poet Laureate who lives right in Bell Buckle! Write not only in the way you need for TCAPS, but also in creative ways.
