The rhymes and silliness of Dr. Seuss are incorporated into reader’s theater, crafts, team activities and outdoor play.

July 17-21: The Great Outdoors (rising 3rd – rising 8th grade only)

Games and activities indoors and out will focus on physical and brain fitness! Nature hikes in the woods around campus are a big part of this week, so athletic shoes are required. (NO flip-flops, Crocs, open-toed shoes, sandals, etc.)

July 24-28: The Wizarding World of HDS

Campers are sorted into “houses” to compete throughout the week. Some activities include concocting “potions”, writing “spells”, and playing the HDS version of Quidditch!
