Special Camps, K-6
Magic: The Gathering Camp is Back!
Magic: The Campening is returning, back by popular demand! Odyssey is teaming up with local game store, The Gamer’s Haunt, for a third year to provide a safe place for kids to build and test their skills, make new friends, and have fun. Magic: The Campening is a camp designed for campers interested in the strategic trading card game Magic: The Gathering. Whether you are new to Magic: The Gathering, or a long-time player, Magic Camp has something for everyone. As a game, Magic helps players develop close reading skills, logical thinking, social skills, math skills and creativity. Campers in the beginner and intermediate groups will spend each morning at Gamer’s Haunt, then return to Odyssey in the afternoon for swimming and active play. The advanced group will spend the whole day at Gamers Haunt and will have pick up there.
This year we are offering three different Magic Camp experiences:
Week 1 (June 13th – 17th) will be for Advanced Magic the Gathering players focussing on deck building and advanced play strategies including older formats like Modern, Legacy and Commander. The advanced section is for campers aged 11-16 who have prior experience with playing Magic. $350/ week
Week 2 (June 20th-24th) is geared more towards newer players aged 8-13.. Campers will learn how to build a deck, draft, sideboard, and play strategically. The week will culminate in a Standard tournament in which players will compete for Magic The Gathering prizes such as a playmat, deck boxes, and sealed packs. $350/ week
Week 3 (June 27th – July 1st) will be geared toward intermediate players, although it is open to anyone aged 8-13. This week will focus primarily on the Commander and Pauper formats.Campers will learn how to build a 100 card commander deck, and have the chance to try out older formats. In this week, every camper will get to build a new Commander deck as well as draft the Commander Legends set to help build their collection. $350/ week
In June and July Odyssey Campers can choose a special add-on option camp class in the afternoons!

ART with Teri
Student artists will discover their creative and artistic uniqueness exploring watercolor, pastel, acrylics and charcoal techniques in this class taught by seasoned artist, Teri Adams. Sessions will include learning how to draw and paint animals, landscapes, and portraits in the Chinese brush style, French Impressionism technique, and much more! Visit www.teriadams.com to see more.
CERAMICS with Cat
Teacher and artist Cat Ramsey will be hosting this hand-building class in clay. In her class, kids will explore some different techniques for working with clay, creating pieces that the kids can use in their everyday lives as well as some more decorative/ sculptural works. On our last day together, we will spend some time glazing & kids’ works will later be fired.
* We will not be working on the pottery wheel in this class*
Note: Your child’s pieces will not be sent home the week they are made. All of their work will need to dry completely before going through the first firing. Lydia will then clear-glaze the items that need to be glazed, fire them again, and then they will be ready for pick-up. You will receive an email from her when your child’s pieces are ready to be picked up:)
WILDERNESS SKILLS & NATURE CRAFTS
Join KJ to expand your primitive play and skills! Learn to build and shoot blow-guns, make and tend to a fire, move through terrain without being detected, and more! Each afternoon we’ll go on a nature adventure getting lots of movement in our bodies, playing collaborative games outdoors and exploring the world of nature all around us. We’ll incorporate aspects of the natural world into our crafting and play cultivating inner resourcefulness, cooperation, a respect of nature and creativity.

We also offer swim lessons during camp! For more information, please give us a call.
