Summer Camps and Classes are LIVE on our website!

Mr. Laurence has worked hard to create several new camps and classes for us to bring into our summer camp and class line up. All sorts of things like LEGO Robotics, Math Magic 1, 2, and 3, Beginning and Advanced Excel, and Video Editing (which I might take myself). We are also bringing back favorites like Mad Scientists, Zoology, Astronomy, Art Appreciation, Mean Machines, and Manners Matter.
Check them out. You can even sign up online this year.

LEGO Club is Back...

…at a new time and day. We are changing Craft Day into LEGO Club Day. On the first Friday of the even numbered months, we will be hosting the much-loved LEGO Club from Noon to 2pm. Come, bring a friend, or 6, and join us for some creative free-building fun.

Summer Camp: Zoology

We kicked off the summer break with a bang by hosting Zoology Camp this week! Our campers learned how to classify an animal, what the majors differences were between classifications, made some awesome crafts and wrapped it all up with a trip to the El Paso Zoo today. These kiddos are so smart, I am quite proud of them and their hard work this week. 

Summer is almost here!

Hi Lifelong Learners. There are only 6 weeks left of school! My mind is boggled at how quickly this school year is going past. Have you made your summer plans yet? Do you intend to fill your days with reading, playing outside with friends, staying up way too late and sleeping in until noon?
If you haven't made plans to travel, sleep, or game away your whole summer, please consider joining us for some fun and educational summer camps. A full list of camps, their dates and prices can be found on the camps page of our website. We will be learning and playing together all summer long. Hope to see you here!

Spring Break Camps are right around the corner!

Can you believe that Spring Break is only a few weeks away? I cannot wrap my mind around it. I know you’ve all been working so hard this school year and are ready for a break. We are offering lots of camps this spring break “season” and hope you will be able to join us. We say season because between the public, private and charter schools in town, there is a full month of spring break days this year. So we are offering camps for the whole month. If you’re a homeschooler, you can take advantage of any of the day camps we offer.

We are trying a new camp format for Spring Break this year. Instead of a week-long themed camp for a few hours a day, we are offering a full-day themed camp from 8am to 4 pm each day. Each day’s theme will be based around a movie, with a trip to the park, reading time, free play, and a craft included. Cost is $30 per day. Registration and payment is required to sign up. See the CAMP page on the website for more details, or call the office at (575) 208-6395 to sign up. 

Mad Scientists Camp

I think I'm learning more AND possibly having more fun than my smart little campers. :) What a blast we are having this week! So far, we've talked through paper cup and yarn phones (they really work!), and played with Oobleck (Oh, the fun of a Non-Newtonian Liquid), attempted to decode secret messages using lemon juice and heat but that didn't work (an important lesson in all science experiments), separated the colors in markers with water (seriously cool), discovered that rate IS proportionate to particle size by dissolving antacids, dehydrated cucumbers by using three options of sugar, salt and baking soda, made balloon rockets and paper rockets. All that's left is Explosion Day on Friday! Here's some fun photos of the things we've tried this week.

 

EDIT: Friday was super fun! We put Mentos in Diet Coke and watched it become a geyser! And the, we made our own ice cream by "testing" the difference between just shaking it in a bag of ice, versus shaking it in a bag of ice and salt. Good times.
