Comic Book Creators

Comic Book Creators is offered to campers ages 10-13 during Session 2: July 8 – July 19

Camp Season Program Description

Comic books, graphic novels and even comic strips are all great storytelling methods that allow artists and writers to tell exciting stories in a visual way.  If you have an interest in drawing or writing comics then this will be an exciting opportunity to learn more about how these books are created, and a chance to make your own!  Are you a comic reader? Come try your hand at scripting, inventing characters, learning how to compose panels and pages, how to ink and color pages, and some of the digital techniques that brought your favorite books to life.  Campers will have the chance to work with traditional and digital tools and materials as they work towards making their own characters and stories, and ultimately work towards making their own issue of an original comic. Some of the exercises may include drawing thumbnail and model sheets, learning different drawing perspectives, creating dialogue, working with exciting figure poses, developing a personal style of comic drawing, introduction to storytelling methods, layout and inking of comic pages, working with watercolor, and some basic Photoshop for digital drawing and coloring.  From Manga style to classic heroic figure drawing, all styles and levels of experience are welcome!

Tens to Twelves Program Overview

 

Eights to Twelves   Eights to Twelves

Tens-Twelves Program Description

The camp day for the Tens-Twelves is 9:00am-4:00pm Monday through Friday.

Children in our Tens-twelves program are divided into Homegroups. Children in the Tens-Twelves are going into Fifth, Sixth and Seventh grade next fall.

Each Tens-Twelves Homegroup is a consistent place, team of teachers, and group of children that meet over the course of camp. When registering, parents choose a Homegroup with a specific “Focus” that best suits their child’s interests. Focuses range from movement, to table-top games, to crafting. While all Homegroups will experience a variety of activities throughout each session, the focus represents a period of time each day when campers engage in activities that align with the Homegroup focus.

The camp program for children in the Tens-Twelves includes Homegroup Time, Choice Classes, Outdoor Play, and Theme Wednesdays.

Homegroup Time

Homegroup time  Homegroup time

Homegroup room doors open at 8:50am. Activities are set up throughout the room in order to engage children in the beginning of the camp day. The camp day starts with a Morning Meeting shortly after 9:00am. Since campers come from many different schools, these meetings are focused on activities that help them get to know one another and to build a sense of community.  Meeting time may include games, a chance to share thoughts and ideas, and a discussion of the camp day.  

Homegroups enjoy a healthy lunch together, Monday through Friday.  Following lunch, physical activities take place at Houston Ballfield, Downing Street Park, in our Physical and Performing Arts Space, or in Homegroup rooms.

Both before and after lunch, Homegroup TIme is allotted for campers to spend time creating, playing, and experiencing activities that are unique to one’s Homegroup Focus.

Choice Classes
