Summer Camp Themes:

Each camp session is packed with fun for every camper. Each camp incorporates art, sports, and plenty of outdoor play. At EBI, summer campers learn Spanish through experience! Each session has an overarching theme to guide their explorations.

Pre-Kinder-3rd Grade Themes

 

Session I (June 25 - June 29): Ooey Gooey

Get your hands dirty as we explore things that are too messy for the classroom! Campers will become mad scientists and discover how to make things that are sticky, gross and that even erupt! They will have a blast while making a mess outside in the sun.

Session II (July 2 - July 6): The Life of Bugs (No Camp July 4)

Ever wonder how bugs think? Where do they go during the day? What do they do? This camp will focus on the dirty and sometimes gross, ins-and-outs of a bug's life.

Session III (July 9 - July 13): Dino Adventure

Get ready for an adventure to the world of dinosaurs! In this camp we will explore everyday life of some of the world's most mysterious creatures. We will make dinosaur eggs, and even learn a few excavation tips. Who knows what prehistoric things we might find!

Session IV (July 16 - July 20): Treasure Hunters

Embark on a journey to find hidden treasures! We will use our imagination to travel, by boat, plane, and foot to far away places! Campers will create their own maps, and overcome challenges that test their smarts, strength, and teamwork on this wild adventure. But treasure means different things to different people, what sort of special things will you find?

Session V (July 23 - July 27): Civilizations of the Americas

During this session campers will explore amazing ancient empires of the Americas. We will examine what the ancient Mayan calendar can tell about the past. We will create our own ancient waterways to farm like the Aztecs and build grand structures like the Incas. Join us as we explore the mysteries of the Americas!

Session VI (July 30 - August 3): Under the stars

You can turn off your flashlight for this Make-believe camping trip, because we'll be using the light of the moon and the stars! Campers will explore the ancient world of space, from stars to planets and even learn about black holes. We'll make our own mini-galaxies, and play with space slime! It's going to be out of this world!

Session VII (August 6 - August 10): DIY Makers

Do you know how to sew, cook, plant, or paint? Gear up to share your craft and learn a new one! Campers will learn the steps from start to finish and how to become a Maker. By the end, they will have a product of their own, and also have the knowledge to recreate this, or other products, again and again!
