Summer @ Park Tudor 2018 Website Is Live!
It might be cold and snowy, but summer will be here before you know it. Park Tudor is gearing up for another great summer of camps and classes; course descriptions for students from age 3 through high school are now available at www.parktudor.org/summer.
Registration will open February 13. Options include arts and athletics, academics, enrichment, STEM, Spanish immersion, traditional day camp, and more!
Pack your bags! We will be visiting a different Spanish speaking country each day! This Spanish immersion camp for grades K-6 is offered in two-week sessions (June 4-15 and July 9-20). We will learn about Spanish-speaking countries and incorporate STEAM activities into each lesson as we draw out the Spanish language from the students. Students will learn about geography, locations, local customs, food and much more all in Spanish. After we establish routines by the 3rd day, class will be conducted 90% in Spanish.
Returning for its fourth year is the Innovators Institute for students entering grades 9-12. Students will learn and experience how to apply principles of innovation, design, and entrepreneurship to create their own ideas and turn them into reality. New this year: There are one, two, and three week options available. Students can sign up for one, two or all three weeks!
- Week one (July 9-13): Principles of Innovation and Design
- Week two (July 16-20): Principles of Business and Social Entrepreneurship
- Week three (July 23-27): Pitch Challenge Week
The summer Southern Studies course is returning for 2018. This for-credit class is designed for students entering grades 10-12, and will run June 4-24.
Co-taught by English Department Chair, Jane Sidey, and Social Studies Department Chair, Dr. Sven Dubie, the class includes two weeks in the classroom followed by one week of travel through the South.
This year, our primary destination will be "the Big Easy" - New Orleans - but will also likely include stops in Nashville; Memphis; Jackson, Mississippi; and Montgomery, Alabama. The course is interdisciplinary, examining ideas about the American South through a variety of lenses, including history, literature, music, film, food, art, architecture, and environmental science.
