Today Steel City Pops joined us to celebrate a great summer! Our Math & Writing Institute campers and all of our counselors got to enjoy popsicles by the pond on our beautiful campus. We have loved having these middle and upper school campers in the first year of our Institute. We hope that they’ll join us again next year for new curriculum and exciting electives!

We will have lots of pictures of our Discover Day Camp, Creative Arts Camp, and Explorations campers in our gallery¬†tomorrow!! Check here to see pictures of all of the fun that they’ve been having.


Our Discover Day Camp and Creative Arts Camp had lots of fun outside today! Discover kids got to enjoy a bounce house and snow cones! Creative Arts Camp enjoyed Splash Day and playing on the playground. Don’t forget the Creative Arts Camp show coming up on Friday.

In our Math & Writing Institute for middle and upper school students, there was a math scavenger hunt. Students had to successfully solve a problem in order to move to the next clue. In the Art Class elective, students got to sit in the shade and sketch the pond and flowers. These older campers come from all over the metroplex to be a part of the Math & Writing Institute. It is awesome to see how our teachers can give them personalized curriculum to meet them where they’re at and to help them improve. These campers will surely be ready for an awesome school year!

Our 7-on-7 Football Rocks group ran some awesome flag football scrimmages today. Many of these campers stepped up to demonstrate leadership through play calling and integrity through their sportsmanship. We are proud of the progress they are making as team players and as athletes. Our Discover Day Camp had a Splash Day today! Our Creative Arts Campers enjoyed playing freeze dance. Our Pretty Please campers set up their table for a formal dinner and served each other soup. We’re looking forward to all of the fun that we will have the rest of this week!
