Kid Zone Summer Camp Class Descriptions
Cooking– Long ago, there were many different kinds of dinosaurs. Contrary to popular belief, most dinosaurs were herbivores, not carnivores. Like herbivores, we’ll try seaweed salad and other unique veggie treats.
Sports– We’ll transform the Kid Zone gym into a Jurassic playground, and play games like Feed the T-Rex, Prehistoric Swamp Relay, and Move Like They Did, and join in the fun as we do the funky Caveman Shuffle.
Art– Cave painting was a form of communication and expression. We will try our hand at this earliest art form and make realistic fossils and other artifacts.
Science– Discover the earth long ago with a hands-on introduction to dinosaurs and paleontology. We will recreate basic tools modeled after the ones used by the earliest humans.
Performing Arts– Imagine what the world would be like if dinosaurs and humans met! Taking inspiration from our favorite dinosaur movies like The Land Before Time and Ice Age, we’ll create a roaring performance.
Join us in a time when ideas in scientific thought, art, and culture were expanding more than ever before! We’ll expand our own minds this week as we make connections from hundreds of years ago to our modern lives.
Cooking– Believe it or not, this was the first time in history that bread and pies became popular foods. We will make bread and pies from scratch. We’ll also make other popular sweets from the time like cannoli and gingerbread.
Sports– Medieval knights participated in tournaments to gain wealth, esteem, and skill training. Join us for our own medieval tournament. Activities will include crossbow and archery, horseshoes, jousting, “skittles,” and an early form of badminton.
Art– Like members of the noble court, we’ll design our own jeweled crowns and swords. We’ll create our own stained glass and illuminated manuscripts. Also, we’ll try painting upside down, just like Michelangelo when he painted the Sistine Chapel.
Science– We will learn about amazing inventions of the time, like the mechanical clock, windmill, and astrolabe. We’ll discover the magic of chemistry and its beginnings with alchemy. We will also have fun exploring how the Scientific Method can be used.
Performing Arts– We’ll invite characters like King Arthur, Lords and Ladies, Princes and Princesses, and the Knights of the Round Table as we create a performance fit for a king!
Set sail on an overseas adventure and discover new worlds as we follow the legendary voyages of explorers like Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, and Captain James Cook.
Cooking– To prevent scurvy, we’ll cook up some healthy fruit recipes packed with vitamins and lots of flavor. All aboard as we travel to the Spice Islands and make some zesty recipes inspired by the unique flavors of these newly discovered islands.

This was an age of excitement and change! Travel back to the early 20th century when things like cars and chocolate chip cookies were brand new!
Cooking– Many of our favorite treats were developed over 100 years ago, like Hershey’s chocolate bars, Pepsi-Cola, waffle ice cream cones, and boxed cereal. We will use these ingredients to make some delicious treats.
Sports– The early 1900s brought many exciting new things to the world of sports. We’ll play games to commemorate the invention of basketball in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1891, the first year women competed in the modern Olympics in 1900, and the first World Series in 1903.

Performing Arts– This was a time of great change in the entertainment industry. Jazz became all the rage, the Disney Company started making cartoon shorts, and vaudeville took audiences by surprise. We will incorporate all these skills into a performance to remember.
The 1940-50s were the beginning of the modern American Dream. Families worked hard to create new opportunities and advanced technology for the promise of a bright future. What did the American Dream mean to people at that time, and how do we still share many of the same values today?
Cooking– This was a time of simple comfort food in America- we’ll make classic 1950s diner food and our own homemade TV dinners. We’ll celebrate the 1947 invention of Betty Crocker Cake Mix and the Pillsbury Bake Off with our own baked goods.
