June 15 – June 19   Think Like a Chemist

Pre K-First Grade, 9:00am – Noon

This camp is for children who are crazy about science experiments! In this hands-on camp, students will make putty, observe chemical reactions and explore dry ice. Favorite camp activities include color mixing, food science and fun experiments. Campers also get to take home cool items like test tube waves, tie-dyed clothing, slime and a color-changing cup.

June 22 – June 26   Early Wheels Community Service Camp

Grades 8-12, 9:00am-3:30pm

Learn design thinking, coding/programming, fabrication and electronic skills all while giving back! GoBabyGo is a national program that makes unique modifications to toy cars for children with disabilities. At this camp participants will meet the families and the children through the non-profit Early Wheels and will then custom “hack” ride-on power toys suited to each child. Every camper will learn about the design thinking process while gaining skills necessary to adapt the steering, circuitry and seating of the vehicles. On Friday the families will join us to see what the campers have created, and their children will test drive their new wheels! Ninth and 10th grade students will earn their required 15 community service hours for this camp, and 11th and 12th grade students will earn hours that can be applied toward the Presidential Service Award.

Parent Quote About Early Wheels Camp “The Early Wheels camp was the most amazing camp my daughters have ever attended. Not only were they able to develop their mechanical and electrical skills, they were also improving their soft skills . . .  It was an incredibly powerful experience with too many life lessons to count, and I am grateful to Parish for providing such a meaningful opportunity for my daughters. We will never forget it!” -Stacey Bixby, Summer 2019
