School is Out Mini-Camp – Fall 2017

Schools are closed for the day, and by popular demand, we will be open! We don’t have a set schedule of lessons for these mini-camps, and will choose activities based on the interests of the kids who attend. Some activities we have done in the past include:

  • Play Minecraft and other games on the computers and tablets
  • Enjoy a rousing game of Monopoly, Uno, Life, or one of the many other board and card games we have available
  • Experiment with STEM toys, like Snap Circuits, littleBits, Dash & Dot, and more
  • Watch music videos and have a dance party

This camp is appropriate for kids in grades K through 8.

Important: Camp is held from 9am-4pm each day. We will add before (8-9am, $10) and/or after (4-6pm, $20) care if we have enough requests for it, so please let us know in the order notes if you need it. Food is not provided at camps, so please make sure your child has lunch, snacks, and drinks for the day.

Introduction to Animation – Fall 2017 – Carroll County Homeschoolers

Join Coder Kids Club for 3 sessions of animation, on Thursdays, 10am-12pm, November 9, 16, & 30. Kids will learn about:

  • Animation terminology
  • Storyboarding and storytelling
  • Character planning and drawing
  • Traditional animation
  • Stop-motion animation
  • Computer-based animation

Kids will spend much of the time in this class creating stop-motion animations with a group of 1-2 of their classmates. They should plan to bring in small toys to use for their animations after they have planned out their animation with their group. Please take a picture of the toys before you send them in, to help everyone remember which ones belong to your child, and if you want to be extra sure you get everything back, put your child’s initials on every toy.
