[ARCHIVED] Thrive 2020 Summer Camp Registration Now Open

Thrive Summer

Enrollment for Thrive’s 2020 Summer Camp is now open!

This program is designed to engage youth participants in outdoor exploration, STEM activities, trips to the pool, and fun in the sun. Subsidy available for qualifying families, and additional scholarships available if needed.

Week of 6/22: Ecosystem Explorations     

Learn about wetlands and water quality, habitats, adaptations, and local Vermont wildlife! We will engage in hands-on activities led by guest educators from the Winooski Valley Parks District.   

Week of 6/29: Edible STEM

Engage in hands-on activities that are both delicious and fun. We’ll build and use solar ovens, design structures using edible ingredients, and explore chemical reactions that create tasty treats.            

Week of 7/6: Slime Time!

Explore and learn about all things messy, slimy, and sensory! We’ll follow and adjust recipes to make different kinds of slime, stress ball balloons, oobleck, and Play-doh, and compete to see who can create the most powerful bouncy ball.

Week of 7/13: Makerspace Creations

Our classroom will transform into a makerspace as we build, design, and create. Students will think like inventors and artists as they make robots, racecars, rollercoasters, and more.

Week of 7/20: Aquatic Adventures

Cool off with water-themed activities and games! We will create our own ocean animal sensory bottles, simulate an oil spill clean-up and apply scientific principles to design boats that can hold the most weight and travel the fastest.

Week of 7/27: Construction Week

We’ll take advantage of the learning opportunities at the WSD campus this week, interviewing the workers who are helping the Capital Project become a reality. We’ll design and build prototypes of our own visions of the new school.
