Creators & Explorers

Creators & Explorers Camp

Aurora’s Creators & Explorers Camps are a full or half day of fun! Each day all campers rotate through and participate in a variety of activities including: Science, Coding, Woodshop, Creative Writing, Arts & Crafts and Sports & Games.

Open to campers entering grades K-6 and Counselors in Training entering grades 7-12. Limited spots still available in only a few age groups.

Adventures in Science
From simple experiments to engineering challenges, we’ll explore scientific concepts designed for fun and learning!

Woodshop
You will work on individual or group projects ranging from very simple to abstract inventions, all while learning basic tools and methods in woodworking. It’s fun, challenging, and inspiring.

Coding
Using the well know Code.org curriculum and Scratch / Scratch Jr. programming language to teach basic coding principles, your camper will be able to explore the word of coding at their own pace at an age-appropriate level.

Creative Writing & Comics
Let your imagination take over! Here’s a chance to learn how to take all those wonderful ideas and put them on paper, whether as short stories or comic strips.

Sports & Games
This is the kids chance to move, grove, and have fun out on the yard. We will explore sports of all types along with other active games such as tag, obstacle courses, and more!

Arts & Crafts
This part of our camp day will include a vast array of kid-tested crafts of every sort. Projects will range from simple paper and pencil crafts to the more involved use of specialized materials such as clay and paint. Crafts will be adjusted as needed to be age appropriate.
