at the Prop Thtr : 3502 N. Elston, Chicago, IL
July 9 - 27, 2018
Mondays thru Fridays 9:00 - 3:00
Curiosity Club is a full day summer camp where kids explore art and science. Each day we delve into our theme, exploring physically, imaginatively and intellectually.
This summer our theme will be LIGHT.
The basic daily schedule begins with meditation and movement, leads to science experiments and research, breaks for lunch, evolves into peer led sharing games, connects to an art project, closes with release and reflection. The session will culminate in a kid-hosted showing including a science fair, art gallery, and screening of the movies they create.
Workshops are kept small on purpose so the kids have freedom and flexibility to initiate projects. So sign up now!
Summer 2017: Our theme was CODE. We coded and decoded secret messages, learned some basic python computer language, made websites and made movies. Look at our movies here!
Do you want your kids to develop a life long love of learning? Do you want to encourage them to take initiative? Do you want your kids to practice compassion and cooperation? Do you wish your kids understood the joy of figuring out challenging stuff?
The Curiosity Club is designed to
nurture all these traits!
Examples of graduates include someone who built a computer from parts, someone who wrote and directed a show that is currently running in the Rhino Fest and two who were assistant teachers in Curiosity Club 2015.
Tell your kids they will have lots of fun, make discoveries, make messes, make movies, and make friends.
Do you want to make a movie? Do you like making new friends? Do you like to explore messy art and science?
Do you crave independence to express your ideas? Do you want to discover more about yourself and the world around you?
You can do all of those things
at the Curiosity Club!
