Special Camps, K-6
Every week Odyssey Campers can choose a special camp class in the afternoons!
We have a new immersive camp offering!
MAGIC: THE CAMPENING!
We are excited to announce the first ever Magic: The Gathering summer camp! Magic: The Campening is a collaboration between Odyssey Summer Camp and local game store Gamer’s Haunt and campers between the ages of 8 and 12 are invited to take part in this immersive camp experience, offered during weeks 2, 3, and 8.
We will meet at Odyssey each morning and then travel to Gamer’s Haunt to take part in a variety of Magic: The Gathering games, including drafting, commander, pauper, deck-building workshops, learning combat math, magic card design, and advanced game-play strategy. Each week will culminate in a tournament where campers can test their skills!
Every participant will receive:
- A Spindown 20-sided Life Die
- A Gamer’s Haunt T-shirt
- A Deckbox
- A Playmat
- A Trading Card Binder
- 500 Magic Cards
- 3 Booster Packs (for drafting)
After lunch, campers will return to Odyssey to enjoy the pool, the gym, and the playground. Parents can pick up their campers back at Odyssey at 3:30.
Taught by Lydia Hearne, summer ceramics is all about creative whimsy! Students work with texture, handbuilding, underglazes, and create up to four projects to bring home.
Nicholas Rake is returning to teach coding this summer, guiding campers to create through technology! Nicholas differentiates his coding instruction so that campers of all skill levels can learn something new every day.
Monica Wright, a student of vocal music education at Lee University in Tennessee and participant in the Berkley School of Music Theater Summer Program, is offering her music class again this summer! The focus for this class will be developing community, play, joy, and movement through music!
World-renowned musician, River Guerguerian, teaches percussion in his recording studio! Campers receive direct instrument instruction, and have a chance to truly unleash their creativity through rhythm every day.
Michele Torino Hower, choreographer, dancer and lover of all things somatic is sharing her joy for emboldened movement expression. In Dance, students will play movement games that energize new pathways of connection both in the body and across people.
Led by Odyssey’s High School Science Teacher, Andrew Rabin, each class we will have a different building challenge using ordinary materials. We will build towers, bridges, race cars, paper airplanes, kites, egg drop insulators and more!
