Maumee City Schools Summer Camp 2018
Maumee City Schools is Proud to Offer Our Summer Camp for the 2nd Year
Due to our success last year and many parent requests, we have expanded our summer camp program during its second year to include incoming students in grades Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. Students will receive individualized instruction to meet their needs during this hands-on experience. Students can choose from four different themes or can even choose to attend all four weeks. Below is some important information, along with links to pictures from last year's camp so you can what all the buzz is about. Don't be left behind this summer...enroll your child today!
Week 1 - Space & Rocketry
This week is a focus on space & rocketry concepts at every grade level. Students will visit the Makerspace every day this week to develop and create amazing projects such as Milo, the space rover, Virtual Reality (VR) trips to the Moon and Mars, building their own space pod and many more. K-4 students will end their week visiting space at the Ritter Planetarium and the 5-8 students will complete a mock space mission at the Challenger Center.
Week 3 - Living Things
This week, student will learn about all different kinds of living things from bugs to mammals, from plants to large ecosystems. Many hands-on experiences will happen each day as they visit the Makerspace and spend time in the various outside living spaces our community has to offer. K-4 students will end their week visiting the Toledo Zoo and 5-8 students will explore local ecosystems up close and personal.
Week 2 - STEAM (Art Focus)
This week is focus on melding digital design with classical art concepts. Students will visit the Makerspace every day this week to develop quality art projects that integrate technology into their design. Students will also become familiar with characteristics of specific artists and their artwork. They will also learn about the design process and what it takes to develop these projects. All students will end the week with a hands-on experience at the Toledo Art Museum.
Week 4 - Makerspace
In the final week of Summer Camp, students will become innovators and dreamers as they create things both with traditional and technology materials. Robotics, circuitry, 3D design and printing, cardboard building, coding and more will be a part of this exciting week. K-4 students will wrap up this week by visiting the Imagination Station and 5-8 students will visit the Henry Ford Museum.
- Intervention classes with a reading focus available for all grade levels. These are smaller class sizes and taught by one of our many Intervention Specialists. The Intervention classes focus mostly on reading skills with content time related to the theme of the week.
