Winter Camp and Game Designer’s Camp

Hello Everyone,

We are going to have a Winter Day Camp and a Game Designer’s Camp this winter from December 29 – January 2, no class on January 1st.

The day camp is a great and cheap alternative to day care. It is for children in grades 1-8, and runs from 9am – 3pm at John Maclure Community School. The kids will have an opportunity to socialize during the winter break. The camp will also include organized gym games, crafts, movies, computer time, and much more. The cost is $70 for the 4 days. Please see the sign up sheet below.

The game designer’s camp is a quick one week camp where students will have an opportunity to get introduced to programming. In the one week, we will cover introduction to programming, logic, problem solving, and exploring the applications of math in computing. The children also learn about character design, level design, and game design. The camp will end with a pizza party on Friday, and a chance for the kids to show off their games to their parents. The camp runs from 9am – 12pm, and is $50 for the 4 days.

Summer Camps are over!

Hello Everyone,

We had a great summer here at WACSS. We’ve kept busy, working non-stop ever since school has been out. We held a total of 6 weeks of summer camps. This year was a record year for our Summer Slam camps, as we had an average of 31 students/week in our camps. The kids had a lot of fun through out the summer, and many of them returned for multiple weeks. We had lots of out trips, including fishing, mill lake, wildplay, extreme air park, library, museum, firehall, and more!

Our Scamper program concluded it’s 5 week run as well. Many of the participants were able to reach their grade’s reading levels! Congratulations everyone!
