This afternoon session will offer swim lessons, skill building, and pool games for campers already treading water and floating independently. Assessments on the first day of each camp session will ensure readiness for this program. Campers will be grouped and placed in ability groups.
A 1.5-mile bus ride from Lowell yields access to beautiful horses, professional instruction, and grooming, tacking, comfort, and performance lessons. Beginners receive basic horse knowledge that forms a solid foundation for any discipline of future horseback riding. Intermediate riding instruction is also provided for students who have previous riding experience. Campers will enjoy activities on campus before leaving for the stable each day. Families can pick up directly from the stable, or campers can ride the Lowell bus back for a 3:45 pm arrival on campus.
Campers will participate in a week of clever games and challenges as they try to determine who among them is the mole! Challenges will push campers mentally, physically, and out of their comfort zone and may involve traveling away from campus via school bus or public transportation.
Lights! Camera! Action! Campers will create their own destiny in this exciting course by picking, staging, and performing a musical theater showcase. With the help of seasoned counselors, all personalities and talents will have an opportunity to shine in a musical revue that will leave the audience in awe.
Campers will spend four days learning techniques for picking up choreography, building improv skills, and enhancing stage presence and performance skills. Lowell’s own dance teacher, Taylor, will share skills and tips while infusing friendships and fun. This camp is a great addition to the Gotta Have Glee! camp in Session 1.
Campers are challenged to find points of interest and little-known locations in and around DC. Armed with a set of clues, campers research a map of public transportation routes and set out to find the history and culture that make DC unique. Campers love traveling around DC and the independence this program allows.
Learn to mix songs and beats to create your very own custom remix. You’ll leave with your own remix, a dope playlist, and the opportunity to try dropping it all at a camp dance party. What are you waiting for?
Campers passionate about serving the community will spend a week finding ways to lend a helping hand and make a big impact. Campers will brainstorm ways to use their voice and show support for humanity beyond drives and donations. Service-learning hours will be granted to those who need them, if accepted by their school.
Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whoever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. All campers will have a role in the show’s production. Pre-camp auditions for characters will be announced in early spring. Campers interested in backstage work will not be required to audition.
Campers in the program will roll up their sleeves, get their hands dirty, and get creative by making skin care products, experimenting with nail art, creating vision boards and wall art, designing and making jewelry, and more. It’s a week of fun and projects among friends, old and new.
It’s the return of the welding camp! Campers will split the day between wood and metalwork in this hands-on workshop. Each camper will design and build an item to take home at the end of the week. The program is led by Lowell’s beloved, experienced, and supremely talented craftspeople, Mario and Trevor. All safety equipment will be supplied. Space is very limited.
Are leaders born or made? Campers will look at what makes a leader, then challenge themselves to find their own leadership skills and power. Through an in-depth look at other young leaders, these campers will hone their own leadership skills and work together to identify leadership pitfalls. Campers will work collaboratively and individually and must be open to new ideas and pushing themselves. The program will include a service component for which SSL hours can be attained.
