Tour and Explore the Global Shores Camp

Grades 4–8 | Aug. 7–11 | 8 a.m.–5 p.m.

The Office of International Affairs is delighted to introduce the first year of a unique camp, “Tour and Explore the Global Shores.”  For five days, this cultural camp will introduce children to world cultures with a week of stories, music, crafts, games, snacks, and special guests from other countries and cultures. Campers will focus on cultural/language immersion, experiential learning, and making meaningful connections across national, linguistic and cultural borders through activities. They will also be able to explore their feelings in a supportive environment. Campers will “visit” a different country each day, create their own travel scrapbooks, receive a passport and a Tour & Explore the Global Shores T-shirt. Campers will practice tai chi, discuss books, play Don Quixote, try their skills at Korean brush painting, explore German holidays, and much, much more!

Participation in this camp will expose youth to become well-informed global leaders and citizens, travel and outdoor adventure, and an interest in studying abroad as early as in high school and in college.

The camp will culminate with PowerPoint presentations from campers on their favorite country.

Youthful Essence

Grades 5–8 | Aug. 14–18 | 8 a.m.–5 p.m.

Campers will establish a business by creating a natural skin care product line. You will witness your child transform into a scientist as they begin to mix a variety of natural ingredients together to create a new product. The campers will control every aspect of the skin care line from marketing to packaging. Logos and labels will be created by the students for the finished products. They will become educated on how chemicals affect the largest organ of the body, “the skin,” and obtain an understanding of why there is growing awareness of the hazards everyday skin care can cause. Due to allergy issues, parents will be supplied with a complete list of all the natural ingredients that will be used during this week of camp.
