Garden Club

Summer Camps

Primarily led by teachers, the summer camp instructors will determine the range of grade levels invited to participate, along with the minimum and maximum number for participants. Camp activities will ordinarily take place at ACS unless special approval (and parent approval) has been granted.

Farm Club

Wednesdays, 9:00am-12:00pm

Bring the ACS Farm to life this summer! Plant, trellis, weed, harvest, market, and sell veggies from the summer garden. Learn how to raise goats and chickens, including milking goats and gathering eggs. Work hard, get messy, and make new friends as you explore and care for creation (including 49 chicks and 9 baby goats in need of care and love).

Music Camp

June 18-21, 9:00-11:30am

There will be all sorts of music of many types. Each day we will work on instrumental and vocal musical projects - some we will do together in a big group, some will involve practice on our own. Whether you enjoy playing and singing solo or prefer to work in teams/groups this camp is for you. You will experience a variety of music genres: Disney songs to show tunes to jazz, to Christian, etc.

Any winds (brass or woodwinds), piano, strings, percussion, guitar and ukulele are welcome. You should already know how to play at least one instrument in order to enjoy this camp - if you can play more than one, that is great.

Students may choose to experiment and learn a different instrument that is new to them for part of the week along with enhancing their skills on their primary instrument. We will further develop our skills and increase our confidence and abilities.
