SUMMER TINKERING

An immersive, five-day building experience that springs out of Mark Day School’s long standing collaboration with the world-renowned Tinkering School in San Francisco, this program seeks to empower students by introducing them to real tools and challenging them with these four goals:

1. Make mistakes and learn from them
2. Build something bigger than themselves 
3. Collaborate and make new friends
4. Try harder than usual

Each week-long session at Summer Tinkering at Mark Day is a student-centered experience during which students ages 7-11 imagine, design and build incredible large scale creations out of wood under the watchful guidance of caring and experienced Mark Day faculty and staff. Each week begins with a surprise theme that provides the structure and story for the week. Past themes have included Harry Potter, where students designed and built the Hogwarts Express steam train, and Pirates where students spent the week building a GIANT pirate ship and an island to hide their treasure on! 

Dates:

  • Session 1 - June 27 – July 1 
  • Session 2 - July 4 – July 8
  • Session 3 - July 11 – July 15
  • Session 4 - July 18 – July 22 

Ages: 7-11
Time: 9:00am - 3:00pm
Fee: $675
Instructors: Tatian Greenleaf, David St. Martin and more

KID STOCK - PERFORMING ARTS PROGRAM

Kid Stock Summer programs are one-week day camps that give kids the chance to grow and express themselves through workshops in dance, drama and singing. At Kid Stock, we emphasize fun! Here are three of the many ways we reduce the competitive pressure of traditional theater environments for young adults learning to come into their own creative selves: 

  • Community building to establish comfort and confidence amongst peers
  • Eliminating the visible, stressful casting process
  • Crafting roles with student input
  • Focus on the overall process and not the final product

Dates:

  • Session 1 - Monday, June 20 - Friday, June 24
  • Session 2 - Monday, June 27 - Friday, July 1
  • Session 3 - Monday, July 11 - Friday, July 15

Grades: K-8
Time: 9:00-3:00 
Fee: $550 
Instructors: Kid Stock Faculty
