Camps offer lots of learning, creativity and engaging activities

Lots of learning, creativity and engaging activities were the features of this year’s math, literacy and technology summer camps at Harry Hoag School. Students enjoyed a variety of hands-on projects and challenges that taught them new skills, built upon their knowledge and provided some great opportunities for teamwork and growth.

Here are just a few highlights.

Soon to be 3rd graders put together a 500-piece puzzle from Roald Dahl’s book, “The BFG” at summer literacy camp. They also read the book and compared it to the Disney movie.

Math & literacy campers practiced making 2D and 3D shapes with marshmallows and toothpicks, reported Tayah Simmons. “Then for fun we got creative to see what we could build. Some built pools, campfires and houses!”

When these math & literacy summer campers head into 4th grade in September, they’ll bring with them skills they learned this week while journal writing, sketching, building with popsicle sticks, doing guided reading, using math manipulatives and having some crafting fun!

Matt Heiser’s Summer Tech campers created personalized movie promos using Adobe Express, a graphic design program.

One camper connected tech camp with her involvement in the summer musical: She created a promo for the Fort Plain/Canajoharie drama club production of “Holiday Inn.”
