2017 Summer camps

 

The Lower School campus is a small community and we participate in a variety of activities that helps add fun and service to our normal intellectual pursuits. These activities serve to define us, connect us with our extended community, or allow us to relax in the context of things we have accomplished. Here’s the list:

Our God made our world packed full of animals and places to inspire and excite us! The sea is no exception! Take an art trip to the sea this summer and create 2D and 3D art work based on real and imaginary ocean subject matter.
