Summertime is coming, and with it, time for lots of fun! St. Luke’s June camps extend our great programming and enthusiasm three weeks closer to summer vacation!

Campers should wear comfortable play clothes and sneakers (no crocs or sandals).  Campers will be grouped by age and move between classrooms and outdoor activities throughout the day to keep them engaged!

Each week of camp has its own theme, and families can sign up for any or all camps. We look forward to having your child participate. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office at 703-765-6699 or via email at stlukesdayschool@cox.net.

Registration is now open to current students. Families registered for 2018-2019 school year may register April 1-May 1; outside families may register May 1-May 15, assuming spots remain.

Week One: Tuesday, May 29 – Friday, June 1
Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs, dinosaurs everywhere! What’s more fun than a camp full of dinosaurs? Ask our junior paleontologists! They’ll excavate bones, study different species, compare carnivores and herbivores, and move like a stegosaurus. We’ll explore outdoors, sort bones, build a skeleton, learn about dinosaur habitats and definitely roar like a T-Rex. If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll see one!

Week Two: Tuesday, June 5 – Friday, June 8
Raiders of the Lost Artifacts: Treasure hunters, this camp’s for you! Each day we’ll study legendary world explorers. How did they get to faraway lands? What were they looking for? What methods did they use to uncover new civilizations and, in some cases, treasure? What did they find and who did they share it with? Join us as we create a new generation of brave, inquisitive explorers – and maybe find some treasure along the way!

Week Three: Tuesday, June 12 – Friday, June 15
Mission Impossible: Solving special missions – with science! How many STEM activities does it take to solve an impossible mission? We’ll look at gadgets and gears, engineer with Legos, learn how to make slime and what makes a volcano explode. We’ll mix colors, find out how sunscreen works, observe magnetic forces and make it rain. And in the process, we’ll solve some pretty tough challenges!
