Courses

Courses offered at Camp Connect are under constant development. We are always looking for ways to improve our courses as well as generate new ones to keep campers engaged all summer. Course offerings are specific to a given session and will change throughout the summer based on our campers' interests and staff.

session one and session two

Computer Science, Cinematography, Medical Science, Entrepreneurship

Computer Science Level 1: Campers acquired the skill of thinking like a programmer, while sparking their interest for technology and code through collaborative projects.  By the end of the week, campers designed and implemented their own projects based on their personal interests. 

Cinematography: Cinematography was an immersive course that provided campers with the essentials of visual storytelling. By the end of the week, each camper created their very own short film. This course provided a rich and hands-on perspective into the beginnings of cinematographic storytelling!

Medical Sciences: Using case studies, creative projects, and online simulations, students learned about the medical field in a way they never have before! By the end of this course, students  established a tool set for assessing illness in order to make their own mock diagnoses. 

Entrepreneurship: During the week, campers learned about how entrepreneurs have shaped our world. They collaborated with one another to redesign an object in their everyday lives. By the end of the week, teams will come away with a business plan for a completely new product of their own! 

session three and session four

3D Graphics, Songwriting, Ecology, Fashion Design

3D Graphics: Campers dived into the 3D world to learn how to navigate, model, texture, and animate. Campers acquired the tools necessary to step into the endless world of computer-generated imagery used by concept artists, character modelers, animators, architects, game designers, movie studios, and so much more!

SongwritingWith no past music training required, this course gave campers the tools to produce completely original songs. From lyric writing to the basics of music theory, campers not only learned the techniques used by their favorite artists, but also cultivated their own, unique sound and musical taste.

EcologyEarth is home to millions of fascinating plants, animals, bacteria, fungi, and so many other living things. Campers explored the diverse, natural world around us, focusing on developing the skills needed for students to conduct their own research. 

Fashion Design: Fashion is such a powerful way of expressing our personality, creativity and culture. During the week, we explored the process of turning their designs into wearable art and even creating a clothing line from scratch! This course provided a window into the incredible world of fashion and all of its exciting avenues.

session five and session six

Coding, Acting, Epidemiology, Architecture

Coding: Building off of the skills learned in Computer Science 1, campers took a deep dive into the syntax and logic of coding in Python, one of the most used languages by today’s professional programmers! Campers learned to think like a software developer and create algorithms to solve problems through  project-based learning.

Acting: Throughout the week, campers were provided with the tools and confidence to become a star! Campers learned how to create characters, break down monologues and perform group scenes. Culminating in a digital performance performed by the campers, Acting was an incredibly engaging, collaborative course! 

Epidemiology: Campers learned how local, state, and national health agencies survey populations for contagious disease and the research methods that empower critical decisions such as quarantining cities. This course was rooted in research methods for public health and the health sciences and empowered students to decide which evidence-based policies they would apply to protect a population. 

Architecture: In Camp Connect’s Architecture course, campers learned how to analyze and create their own scaled architectural drawings. They turned ideas into blueprints, honed their fine arts skills, and crafted their ability to represent 3D structures on 2D paper. From dream house to skyscraper, campers designed the future of the world around them in Architecture at Camp Connect!

session seven and session eight

3D Graphics (Level 2), Photoshop, Website Design,

The Great Debate, Music Production & Engineering
