Courses

Below are the program offerings for summer camp 2020 at Mark Day School. For more detailed information and to sign up, please visit the UltraCamp website here.

ARTS IN ACTION

ARTS IN ACTION provides a fun way for children to find their inner artist. By combining art and theater in one camp, kids are given opportunities to create with different art mediums, and to experience acting and singing live onstage. It's the best of both worlds. Campers need only bring their creativity and enthusiasm! This year's drama production is James and The Giant Peach.

HOOPZONE

Sharpen up your skills with coach Lewis Usher! This training session will provide an excellent opportunity for boys and girls, ages 7-10, to improve their skills and to further develop a love of soccer and basketball!

TINKERING SCHOOL

The use of real tools to tackle real problems creates a unique atmosphere of trust and responsibility for tinkerers aged 7 to 11 years old. We empower our tinkerers with tools, autonomy, and space. Big responsibilities build competency and leave lasting memories!
