Chess Camp

        

Sign up for chess camp! Students will learn chess fundamentals and strategies that enhance learning skills and critical thinking. We will build confidence. Novice students and experienced players are encouraged to sign up as we will have two levels. The first day we will have an assessment at the beginning of the day. This review is simply to assign campers to appropriate groups as some already have chess experience. A great feature of chess is that we separate by current ability- age is not significantly important. You will see this at tournaments too. A first grader with experience can easy be stronger than a fourth grader just starting the game. This allows anyone that knows how to play to be competitive for their current ability level. We always encourage the kids to "Study and Practice" to improve at anything. This approach will allow them to move up in rating and compete against more challenging opponents. Each day we will try to complete two chess lessons for each ability group. In between lessons, we will be practicing with each other or having some creative chess teamed activities.

Middle School Hiking Camp

Campers will explore hiking and other activities during this week of outdoor adventure, many of which will occur off-campus.

The benefits of hiking for adosecents are too numerous to count, but here are some of the main ones:

  • Fun. The most obvious of the benefits of hiking for middle schoolers is the fact that hiking is, first and foremost, a bonding experience. There are very few situations in which bonding time isn’t beneficial to all parties. Hiking includes many parts of a full-on camping trip, while only requiring a fraction of the time.
  • Physical health. Although it goes without saying, going on regular hikes improves the physical well-being. Hiking can lower the risk of many nasty diseases, as well as simply being useful to keep in good shape.
  • Mental health. Hiking is not only good for the body; it is good for the mind. Hiking can alleviate the effects of stress and even help depression. Middle school students who go on regular hikes are more likely to stay healthy in other important areas of their lives as well, including keeping a sleep routine, which in turn can mitigate the effects of many mental disorders.
  • Improved mood and school performance. Exercise such as hiking can make a person feel fresh – and this freshness, in turn, translates to quicker thinking.
  • Connection with nature. There is no better way for a middle school student to discover themselves than to have time surrounded by fresh air and beautiful scenery. By having time to reflect, they can learn who they truly are.

Your kids will not only have fun, they’ll learn positive messages about sharing, teamwork, dreaming big and self-worth. They’ll learn calming techniques and ways to sharpen their focus. Yoga can improve your child’s strength, balance and flexibility. It’s also a great complement to other activities like dance, gymnastics and soccer. Each one-hour class includes breathing, yoga poses, crafts, games, mindfulness practices and end with guided relaxation. Each camper will receive and decorate their own yoga mat, eye pillow and other crafts may include “calm down boxes”, stress balls, sun prints and dream catchers. We will also have one day out of camp for a yoga adventure outdoors.

Youth Hoops (REGISTER DIRECTLY ON YH WEBSITE)

 

Youth Hoops is a youth basketball instruction firm offering ongoing basketball camps and clinics to kids (boys & girls) ranging in ages 6 to 14. The camps and clinics are based on a comprehensive course curriculum, which emphasizes basketball fundamentals. Such basketball fundamentals include dribbling, passing, shooting, one-on-one defense, footwork, screening and rebounding.  Using professional and portable basketball drills, kids will be able to improve their game greatly. In addition, many drills may be repeated anywhere.  The goal of our camp is to provide every camper, within a fun-filled atmosphere, the basic fundamentals necessary to play basketball. We emphasize the fundamentals. Every camper will be shown what to practice and more importantly HOW TO PRACTICE. Everyone will receive plenty of individual attention. We want each camper to be a better player when the week is over.
