Specialty Camps (ages 6 to 14)

In stimulating children’s creativity and sense of adventure, we offer over 13 different specialty camps all designed to engage children in activities that keep their interests while fostering learning, a sense of inclusion, and fun.  The artistically inclined child will have a blast in one of our themed art camps.  We offer fun summer themed art projects and activities utilizing some of the most popular art forms including painting, drawing, collage and sculpture.  

For the puzzle solvers at heart, we offer our Escape Room Camp.  Children will get to expand their creative and cognitive muscles by designing and building their very own escape rooms that their peers will get the chance to solve.  They will also get to visit a local Escape Room and try their luck at solving its puzzles while learning the art of creating their own.  

Book worms will rejoice in our Harry Potter Camp where their beloved stories will come to life.  Each child will be immersed in the world of Harry Potter.  They will become a member of one of Hogwarts Americana’s esteemed houses: Dracoyorn, Alicorn, Cerberus, and Basalisk, and will be enrolled in several of Hogwarts Americana’s most popular courses including Transfigurations, Care of Magical Creatures, and Potions classes.  Harry Potter themed foods, crafts and games will all be a part of the fun! Children will compete in Quidditch and end the week with the Tri-Wizard Tournament. 

Cosplayers, gamers, and geeks will be fulfilled during our Jedi, Pokemon Camps, and Dungeons and Dragons Camps.  Children will become Pokemon Masters by caring for their own Pokemon buddy and playing in card and video game tournaments all while showing off their impressive Pokemon Card collections.  They will become one with the Force by completing their Jedi training and graduating from being Padawans to full fledged Jedi Knights.  They will hone their role playing muscles during our Dungeons and Dragons camp where they will be immersed in worlds of their own creation and design, working with their peers in collaborative story telling.  Kids will have the chance to express their “geeky” and creative sides in a safe and fun environment with kids that have the same interests as they do.  Please see below for our offerings:
