By Diane Sutton, Director of Summer Programs, Providence Day School
My daughter is part of the “Harry Potter generation,” and she absolutely devoured the books throughout her school years. Attending her first Harry Potter camp through Providence Day’s Summer Programs was truly magical for her. Fifteen years later, she still recalls the experience with delight. The next generation of Muggles can also enjoy the magic and wonder of Hogwarts as Providence Day continues to bring the world of Harry, Ron and Hermione to life as part of a summer’s worth of fun and adventure!
Not a Potter fan? There are so many other wonderful ways your children can spend their summer at PD. Miss Ava the Science Lady will have your budding scientist getting messy with Ooze, Glop, & Slime…..or creating beautiful artwork as they learn about light and color in Nature’s Art. Your young animal-lover can get close to real wild animals in Wildlife Wonders, or learn about the differences between domestic and farm animals in Pet Pals. Gamers can create their own Minecraft® server or design their own 3D game. Techies can take home their own drone in Miss Ava’s Innovators and Inventors.
Drama kings and queens have their choice of multi-week theatrical productions including the Complete Works of William Shakespeare; Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr.; and Roald Dahl’s Willie Wonka Jr. Does your child have an eye for design? Perhaps Digital Photography, Young Filmmakers Studio, or Project Runway might ignite a new interest. How about music? Piano, guitar, and even hand-held bar chimes all have a camp at Providence Day.
Young athletes have plenty of options, too. Our champion coaches will have your child dribbling, throwing, kicking, passing, and scoring throughout the summer. Campers love meeting Sir Purr at Future Chargers Football Camp, and Fencing campers will learn the difference between a feint, a fleche, and a froissement (try saying THAT three times in a row!).
Charger Chill Day Camp offers a traditional full-day experience complete with arts and crafts, sports, games, circus activities, AND water fun to cool off in the hot weather!
There truly is something for everyone, including a range of academic courses for half- and full-year credit. As a parent, I loved seeing my daughter make new friends over the summer as she explored her interests. As the director of Providence Day Summer Programs, I invite your children to come learn, create, and play with us this summer!
