Join Mrs. Belvedere (Kindergarten teacher) and Ms. Dirube (first grade teacher) for a fun week of engaging skills-based centers that are sure to help with the “summer slide” that many students face. Grade-specific early reading and math skills will be targeted along with exciting STEM challenges each day. Come join us!

    Grade 3rd-5th
    June 18-22
    (9 a.m. - 12 p.m. HALF DAY ONLY)

    Gear up this summer for some serious robotics challenges! Applying the Engineering Design process, students will build a Vex IQ robot, Vex Robotics catapult and Vex Robotics Single Gear Racer. The Vex IQ robot will be used in a competition on the last day of camp using the driver-controlled remote control in alliances with other camp teams. Students will be designing the robot to maximize points using the game for the VEX IQ challenge for the upcoming season. The catapult and racer will be for the students to take home. Additionally, students will receive an hour of ROBOTC graphical programming instruction each day using VEX IQ virtual worlds. The students will receive a year-long subscription to the virtual world so they can continue practicing programming even after the camp is over.

This year we will be travelling back in time to crack the code of hieroglyphics, unravel the mysteries of the mummies, and recreate some of the secret artwork buried in the pyramids. You will love developing your art skills as you paint, mold, sculpt, draw, sketch and create a beautiful ceramic piece inspired by the scribes and artists of Ancient Egypt. Mr. Heetderks will be ready to delve into the process of mummification, the bizarre work of the dung-beetle, and the science of building a pyramid without cranes, bulldozers, or electricity! We will also learn different songs, games, and activities played by the Egyptians.  Come strap on your sandals for summer excitement at Camp King Tut!

    The weekly fee is $350 and includes a daily lunch, art materials, camp T-shirt, kiln firing fees, snacks, and all the fun you can have while enjoying art and science.

    June 18-22, July 9-13, July 16-20, July 23-27
    (9 a.m. - 12 p.m. HALF DAY ONLY)

    All Aboard! Boys and girls in grades K3-2nd get ready because this year a boat is departing from WCS. Yes, you heard right. In our Spanish Camp this summer, we will be travelling to many Spanish speaking countries around the word. Our summer camp this year will incorporate nautical elements and sea animals into a fun-packed, activity-filled program. This program is not the same as the regular school program, since it is design to enhance Spanish speaking skills in a submersion program and not so much the writing skills. We will use songs, role play, games, and even food to learn Spanish in an entertaining and safe environment. Sign up online today! Or contact us with any questions at jbarboza@wcsmiami.org

This week is aimed at developing critical thought, forming good scientific understanding, and building communication skills all while enjoying the exploration of science at its best.

  • WCS Band Camp

    Grade 4th-7th
    July 9 -13
    (9 a.m. - 12 p.m. HALF DAY ONLY)

    The WCS Band Camp is a week-long performance and music learning experience for incoming 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students. No prior band experience is needed. The week will consist of students with no experience sitting next to students with experience – something I like to call Music Education in Action! Over the week, students will learn how to play a band instrument: Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Alto Saxophone, French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, or Tuba. Students with band experience will continue to develop their skills by serving as ‘beginning assistants’, helping the beginning students. With this also comes learning how to read music, breathing technique, posture, and many fun music activities! Band Camp is a way for us to continue to grow our God-given talents! By the end of the week, students will have gained a beginning mastery on their instrument and will perform a short concert to show our musical accomplishments from the week.
  • Robotics

    Grade 6th-8th
    June 18-June 22
    (9 a.m. - 12 p.m. HALF DAY ONLY)
    In the Robotics summer camp students take on the roles of mechanical, electrical and computer engineers as they design, construct and program competitive robots for the VEX Robotics Competition.  Students will work together in teams to come up with a solution to solve the challenge of the current VEX Robotics Competition season.

    Contact Mr. Gambrell with any questions, mgambrell@wcsmiami.org.
  • Drones Camp

    Grade 6th-8th
    June 18-June 22
    (3 p.m. - 6 p.m. HALF DAY ONLY)

    In the UAV drone camp students learn to fly, configure, reverse engineer, design, build and code Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or drones. After exploring aeronautics, the science of flight, students prototype a new Arduino-based flight controller by reverse engineering a complete system piece by piece. After mastering this first UAV Challenge, students extend their lessons learned to build a custom drone.
