Overview

Camp Troubie 2022
Morning camp for rising 5th-8th grade girls

Join us for a fun morning of classes and activities! Each Camp day features three class rotations, outdoor time, and snacks. Campers will rotate through the following classes:

Stories and Strategies

In this collaborative course, you will practice strategy, negotiating skills, and following directions in a variety of game settings. To enhance critical thinking skills needed for any good game player, we will read a selection of fun, clever, and thoughtful short stories that will culminate into the creation of an original game.  You may find that thoughtful discussion and playing well with others are skills that go beyond the game table.

Math in Action

This camp enriches campers’ understanding of math by exploring real-world applications of mathematical concepts, while focusing on “growth mindset” in mathematics. Through collaboration and project-based learning, students develop math confidence while reviewing and enriching the critical areas of study as outlined for 5th-8th grade Math and Algebra. Sessions will group campers by grade and skill set for a customized Math experience.

Creative Writing:  Finding Your Voice

Immerse yourself in a world of creativity with our creative writing course. We will discuss point of view, tone, imagery, dialogue, and character development.  In this course we will not only write, we’ll also work on oral presentations of our written work. By the end of this course, students will feel confident in their ability to express themselves verbally, while also having developed an engaging portfolio of short stories and poetry.
