Summer camps:
Summer Art Studio | June 2-7 | Grades 9-12

This program is for rising 9th - 12th grade students who have an interest in ceramics and printmaking. Throughout the week, campers will learn about surface design techniques and hand-building, an ancient pottery-making technique where campers will create forms using their hands and simple tools. They will also try their skills at wheel throwing and learn about barrel or smoke firing their work. In addition to ceramics, campers will also experiment with colorful and expressive printmaking techniques to make progressively complex images through layering. Campers will then compose and construct artist books to present the images they made. Camp will take place in Biggin Hall and the 3D Arts Building where campers will receive instruction that will jump-start and expand their art making abilities.

For anyone interested in a field of emergency medicine, or in serving on the response team as a non-EMS responder in the government, corporate, law enforcement, or corrections field, the Emergency Medical Response course provides invaluable skills and knowledge to help responders appropriately help at the scene of an emergency. This team-based, interactive course covers topics such as medical terminology, effective communication, and basic patient assessment techniques. Campers will learn how to take vitals, proper lifting and moving skills, in addition to treatment for a variety of common emergencies. Campers will also earn their healthcare-level American Heart Association Basic Life Support certification.

This camp is made possible through a partnership with CarePoint Resources. It is led by active and experienced Paramedics with additional insight provided from local leaders in the field of emergency medicine.
