Virtual Summer Fun for Children!

0

Summer at Friends wraps up its Virtual Summer on August 7, completing eight fun-filled weeks of unique virtual experiences. There are program options for participants as young as 4 and as old as 14.

One of the options that the staff is most excited about for the last two weeks is the Senior Soiree. Designed for campers ages 10 to 14, Senior Soiree is a blend of themed activities and time to socialize with old and new friends. For the week of July 27 we’re bringing back a camp favorite, Cooking Around the World!  Join Mr. Sam and learn to create different quick and easy dishes to share with your family while at home!  We’re talking main dishes, desserts, and a whole lot of fun!

Virtual Summer Brings the Camp Experience Home!

Summer at Friends isn’t on campus this year, but your child can still enjoy many camp favorites from the comfort of home. The Camp Staff has carefully adapted some of their most popular programs to be offered as virtual classes. These Virtual Summer programs are designed with kids in mind, and are scheduled to make it easy for busy parents! Most programs are one hour long and feature a mix of instruction, time to share projects with friends, plus a few activities for children to enjoy throughout the rest of the day! There are plenty of options, and you can mix and match different classes to craft a schedule that is perfect for your child.

“The children have been really enjoying the Virtual Summer programs so far, even though it’s very different from a normal summer…” said Director of Day Camps, Steve Cusick, “we’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback. The classes are spread throughout the day so there is still time for the children to do other things away from the computer. Many are taking the opportunity to expand on the projects we’ve done in class.  We just added a variety of new programs for the next few weeks, including a digital photography class and a makers program.”

Newly added programs also include a creative writing class (“Writing with Friends”) and 2 math based classes (“Sports and Stats” and a “Math Tune Up”) that are a great way to keep children thinking while still having fun!

Budding Artists, Actors, Dancers and Musicians Have a Home at Summer at Friends!

0

Do you know a child who loves art? What about dance, drama (the good kind!) or music? Summer at Friends is the place for budding artists, aspiring musicians, young actors, and dancers to spend their summer. Summer at Friends’ Fine Arts camps offer the perfect blend of art and summer camp (think fun games and activities, swimming, lunch, and more!) This year Summer at Friends is offering several new Fine Arts Camps. And don’t worry – you won’t have to pick just one!

Visual Arts Camp (June 18 – July 13) explores the works of artists around the world while drawing, painting, and sculpting a variety of animals and plants! Campers can attend one or more weeks. This new camp is selling out fast – less than 10 spaces remain!                                                                                                                                     

Dance Camp (July 30 – August 10) is a two week coed camp focused on developing and strengthening fundamental techniques for beginners and seasoned performers alike! Dance campers will be featured performers in our closing ceremony.

Dance and Film (June 18 – 29) using the Friends School campus as a stage, campers will choreograph and film dynamic routines using the pool, dining hall, and other spaces as beautiful backdrops.

For campers who want to rock, there’s Rock with Friends (July 9 – 20). Come join the band and learn how to jam on guitar, bass, drums, keys, or vocals!

Young performers will feel right at home in Imagination Alive (June 18 – July 13) as they work through the process of staging a production; while older performers looking to hone their skills will love TAKE TWO! (July 16 – 27). Did we mention that all of these performances take place in the beautifully renovated Forbush Auditorium?

 Summer at Friends is pulling out all the stops to provide campers with performance opportunities and hands on experience. Find out more at www.fscamp.org or call 410-649-3218.
