Session 1: Life on the Brandeis Farm
(June 10 - June 21)
Let's get our hands dirty this summer! We’ll be exploring the wonders of the plants and animals of both the farm and the natural world. Campers will create their own little Camp Brandeis Farm, by building planters, planting our own vegetables and flowers, making pottery, sculptures and more. We’ll learn about ecology and the life cycle of plants and animals, how to grow and care for them, and how nature is connected to our everyday lives. In addition to the building and growing, campers will also be moving their bodies learning various types of dance and doing some centering yoga! For our field trips we’ll be heading to a local farm and to the Oakland or SF Zoo (TBC)!

If you could create every aspect of the world we live in, how would your world look? Let’s dream, design, build, and get creative! During STEM time, campers will design, build, and construct their own buildings, towns, cities, and worlds. We’ll go wherever our imagination takes us!
For our arts focus this session we will be diving into the theater arts where campers will be designing their own costumes, playing and learning lots of fun theater games, singing, and working on our very own plays and skits. For our two field trips we’ll be spending the day at the Exploratorium at the Embarcadero and mini-golfing at Stagecoach Greens in Mission Bay (TBC)!

What is summer without the sun and the water? As we move into the heart of the summer we’ll be enjoying lots of outdoor time, with water play and cool water based STEM projects each day. Bring your bathing suits and changes of clothes! For our arts focus we’ll be leaning into our summer looks with fun jewelry and fashion activities. We’ll be designing our own summer fashions with a culminating runway fashion show! We’ll also create our own jewelry accessories like necklaces, bracelets, hair clips, and more!
