Painting with squid ink, pulling prints from a real octopus, and even creating authentic sand designs are just a few among a tidal wave of art projects that Mrs. Heetderks will have planned for you! If you like slurping like a seahorse, dissecting slimy sea creatures, playing with live shrimp, or even using real shark teeth to catch your next meal, you will LOVE getting into deep water with Mr. Heetderks! We will sing, play, and end the week with an epic dance party that will surely get you out of your shell!

  • WCS Band Camp

    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.

    In the Competitive 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 EDR Robotics Competition.  Students will work together in teams to come up with a solution to solve the challenge of the current VEX EDR Robotics Competition season.  
     
    In addition, students will also learn to fly, modify and program drones for the upcoming Ten80 UAV Challenge season. By using drones equipped with cameras, students will conduct a mapping of a particular area for a possible search and rescue. After exploring aeronautics, the science of flight, students will learn a bit about the rules and regulations that go into flying drones. By the end of the week, campers will attempt to obtain their Group 1 Novice Pilot certificate by completing a number of flying challenges.
