2017 Summer Camp Program (age 4-14)
Established more than 25 years ago, the ASL Summer Program blends an exciting mix of outdoor and indoor activities for children age 4-14. We provide a unique opportunity for children to learn valuable skills and make new friends through programs that are challenging, educational and fun. Based at our Waverley Place campus, our playing fields at Canons Park, and making use of our partnership with the Bushcraft company, students discover new interests, build self-confidence and learn how to work as a group.
Sporting and outdoors
Our Sports Camp at Canons Park allows participants to improve their individual and team sports skills. The Elementary Sports Camp, also at Canons Park, introduces organized activities to our younger campers at a less intensive level than the Sports Camp. Week 1 offers Basketball and Swimming, as well as the Basketball Camp in Week 2, which take place in ASL's gyms. These programs are open to ASL and non-ASL participants and have maximum group sizes.
Recreation Camp runs for four weeks during the second part of the summer. Based at Canons Park, the program involves a wide range of activities and games, including tennis, soccer, softball and volleyball, and is a favorite of many long-time attendees. Open to ASL and non-ASL participants.
Our Bushcraft program introduces students to a week of outdoor learning experiences, including a five-day and four-night camping experience in an ancient forest in Oxfordshire. Please note that Bushcraft will run from Saturday, 17 June, to Wednesday, 21 June 2017.
We have increased offerings in Week 1, with Basketball and Swimming as well as Gadget Camp—a hands-on design-thinking camp that uses the MILL (Make Innovate Learn Lab) and SAM Labs programmable components to create a range of innovative and fun creations. Gadget Camp enrollment will be divided into two groups—one for age 9–11, and one for age 12–16. Up to 60 participants can enroll.
Our well-established Discovery Camp for students age 4–6 starting in Week 2 can take 42 participants per week. (Please note that students must be able to use the bathroom by themselves.)
Our Exploration Week provides students with the opportunity to select from a range of morning and afternoon activities: creative arts, technology, cooking, drama, robotics and ceramics. A special day-long Science Camp is available for students in Grade 1.
