Join us for ISA's Summer Camp of Adventure & Exploration!
Campers will have the option to choose camp in either French or Spanish. All language levels are welcome! Students will learn and play with new and exciting vocabulary relevant to the theme of the week. You do not have to be an ISA student to attend camp. We are open to everyone ages 2-12*! Campers must be 2 before 6/1/2023 to attend summer camp.
Students ages 7-12 will participate in iCode@ISA, a specially designed summer camp focused on science, technology, engineering and math.
We will also be bringing back some of our favorite vendors for some added fun and enrichment! More details coming soon!
**Extended Care is offered to everyone at no additional cost!**
Week 1 - June 3 - 7, 2024
For Campers ages 2-6: Theme – Dinosaur Days
Calling all paleontologists! Grab your shovels, hats, and boots while we explore fossils, rock formations and all things dinosaurs! This week-long day camp includes hands-on activities, learning through play, STEM projects, and art.
For Campers, ages 7-12: iCode @ ISA – To Infinity, and Beyond : Engineering Journey through Space
By looking out into space, scientists and engineers have been able to answer fundamental questions that have roots here on Earth. Campers will gain problem-solving skills with many hands-on activities such as simulating the galaxy formation with slime, building their own Mars rover, or 3D design a new type of spacecraft. Campers will gain problem-solving skills through hands-on, space-themed engineering activities.
Week 2 - June 10 - 14, 2024
For Campers ages 2-6: Theme – Commotion in the Ocean
Do you think fish, turtles, crabs and sharks are cool? Come spend the summer at sea with our ocean-themed camp! We will explore all things that cause a commotion in the ocean! This week-long day camp includes hands-on activities, learning through play, STEM projects, and art.
For Campers, ages 7-12: iCode @ ISA – Game Builder : Creating with Construct 3
In this introductory camp, campers will go beyond playing games, and get a behind-the-scenes experience, learning the art and science of game development. With hands-on projects, campers will be exposed to many digital tools used today for game creation such as Construct 3. Each game created throughout the week will start small and grow exponentially along with skills learned! By the end of the week, campers will really see that making games is more fun than playing them! Campers will be exposed to many of today’s digital game creation tools, like Construct 3, as they create games of their own!
Week 3 - June 24-28, 2024
For Campers ages 2-6: Theme – Jeepers Creepers!
Do you want to click like a beetle and wiggle like a caterpillar? Can you march like an ant and roll like a roly poly? Come spend the week exploring the wonderful world of creepy crawly bugs. You will be armed with butterfly nets and magnifying glasses as you participate in exciting hands-on activities!
For Campers, ages 7-12: iCode @ ISA – Robot Squads : Engineering Team Challenge
Mimicking the structure of some of the world’s most competitive robotics challenges such as First Lego League, and the DARPA Challenge, this fun and exciting week will give campers the opportunity to put their problem solving to the test! Using robotics, campers will team up and brainstorm solutions to many different challenges! During this camp, the skills of programming and engineering will be used to overcome obstacles. While campers work to complete multi-phased challenges, they will realize that teamwork is needed to solve the problems of tomorrow! Using Lego EV3 Mindstorm robots, campers will team up and brainstorm solutions to many different challenges!
Week 4 - July 8 - 12, 2024
For Campers ages 2-6: Theme – Adventures in Nature
Grab your backpack, flashlight and sleeping bag for this action packed camp! Come make s’mores, sing songs, and explore the wonderful world found in nature. This week-long day camp includes hands-on activities, learning through play, STEM projects, and art.
For Campers, ages 7-12: iCode @ ISA – Artist’s Studio : 2D & 3D Digital Design
Campers will learn to express themselves utilizing the digial tools of the art industry. Varioius pieces will be created throughout the week which will then be shared, and discussed as a group, giving these artists the crucial experience of personal feedback. Some of the areas that each new artist will explore include: photo manipulation, digital painting, 3D sculpting, and programming art! Campers will create an art gallery style presentation for audiences to experience and enjoy their projects. Campers will explore photo manipulation, digital painting, 3D sculpting, and programming art!
Week 5 - July 15-19, 2024
For Campers ages 2-6: Theme – Animal Planet
Join us as we answer the call of the wild in our preschool animal-themed adventure! Grab your binoculars and climb aboard as we learn about our favorite animals! This week-long camp will include hands-on activities, learning through play, exploration, STEM projects and art.
For Campers, ages 7-12: iCode @ ISA – Battle of the Bots : Tournament of Champions
Battle of the bots is a great way to learn how technologies like programming, sensors, gears, and mechanics work, all while having fun! Campers will learn the fundamentals of mechanical engineering as they team up to build robotic systems and compete against one another in tasks such as sumo-wrestling, tug-o-war, head-to-head combat, and much more! By the end of the week, campers will put their skills to the test and see who can build the best battle bot. Campers will learn the fundamentals of mechanical engineering as they team up to build robotic systems and compete against one another!
