Curiosity Club is a full day summer camp for inquisitive kids.
This summer our theme will be
REAL LIFE MAGICAL MUGGLES.
Explore the world of Harry Potter as an allegory for the ways real people stand up to evil. Create some real world magic (and movies!)
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 for the Rhino Fest and two who were assistant teachers in Curiosity Club.
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!

About the Curiosity Club
The Curiosity Club launched in 2011. Take a look at prior Curiosity Club workshops. The main idea is to cultivate curiosity as an essential ingredient for a life-long love of learning. In everything we do, kids are encouraged to take initiative, given the freedom to investigate independently, and work together to collaboratively enhance compassion.
Founder and teaching artist Anita Evans has been working with kids since she babysat for two-year old identical twins at the age of 12. Since then she's had lots of experience working with many kids, including kids with diagnosed behavioral and learning difficulties. In addition to working with elementary school kids, she has created theater performances with teens, and teaches preschool. She is currently enrolled at the Erikson Institute to earn her master's degree in Early Childhood Education with a focus on Social-Emotional Learning.
