Registration Now Open: Grace College Offers Academic Summer Camps for Youth in the Community
Grace College & Seminary is pleased to announce its summer camp schedule for the summer of 2023. The school is offering three camps to meet a variety of student needs and interests: visual art camp, exercise science camp and engineering camp. The full schedule can be found at www.grace.edu/camps.
“These camps really bring academic skills to life,” said Adrienne Daeger, director of event services and camps at Grace. “Our hope is to make learning fun and tangible,” she said.
Students of various ages will experience hands-on instruction as well as individualized mentorship from Grace College faculty, students and local professionals. Through Grace College’s academic camps, students will be given the opportunity to learn new skills, build relationships and gain exposure to careers in a variety of fields.
Campers interested in attending the visual art camp will take their artistic interests and abilities to the next level, developing creative skills in drawing, painting and visual design. The camp includes a trip to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo and Fort Wayne Museum of Art to gather inspiration for projects that will be presented in a final showcase for campers’ families on the last day of camp. Students will also take home an art supplies kit that includes paints, brushes, drawing pencils, a sketchbook and a canvas.
The exercise science camp will be led by sports professionals and give students the opportunity to complete a traditional athletic combine event, including a 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump and more. Students will receive a body composition analysis and functional movement screening, engaging directly with tools of the exercise science trade.
For students looking for hands-on design experience, the engineering camp will provide the opportunity to learn about real-world engineering. Students will visit local engineering companies; learn computer-aided design (CAD) and use it to design a race car; utilize 3D printers, robotics and virtual reality; and participate in a car race at the end of the week.
Each camp includes snacks and lunch. Parents are also invited to a section of each camp to see what their child has been working on over the week. If camp costs are a barrier for a student to attend, need-based scholarships are available upon application. To learn more, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.grace.edu/camps.
