Country Day Summer

Overview

Where the Summer Comes Alive!

Country Day's dynamic summer program is comprised of our parallel Camp Cavalier and Cavalier Academy classes. Between these two offerings, academic, athletic, and arts opportunities are available to students entering Kindergarten through Grade 12.

2018 Summer Program dates are June 18 through August 3, Monday through Friday. Camp and classes are closed July 4. (Please note that two High School classes start on June 11.)

In our Camp Cavalier program, choose from morning, afternoon or full-day sessions. This program is great as a stand-alone and includes field trips, plenty of outdoor play, and engaging crafts and projects as well as character-building and bonding through our age-based camp groups. Though it is a robust program on its own, many families enroll their children in both Camp Cavalier & Cavalier Academy.

Cavalier Academy is a series of morning and afternoon classes ranging from art and archaeology to makerspace, science, and sports. Classes meet for one or two weeks. 

Our 2018 Summer Brochure, which includes full details on our program, including dates, class and summer camp descriptions, and pricing, is available to the right.

Rocket Science
3-2-1 - Lift off!

This camp focuses solely on rockets and rocket flight. From paper airplanes to air-powered rockets, from rubber-band-powered rockets to balloon-powered rockets, students will explore the mechanics of aerospace engineering in a fun, hands-on approach. They will better understand the four forces of flight (thrust, drag, lift, and gravity) through building, testing, and launching their own rockets. Students will take home their own rockets and an abundance of rocket knowledge. Become a real rocket scientist!

Archaeology
Science, meet history!

This summer, we will embark on an adventure of exploration and discovery. Using our skills and excavation tools, students will learn to observe, record, and hypothesize how and when the humans of the past collapsed or changed locations. Students will become young archaeologists on their own dig, discovering the treasures left behind and reconstructing the pieces to make educated guesses and stories of the past.
