Blue Herons 2021 Themes

Session 6 (July 26-30): Pirates of Annapolis

Ahoy, Mateys!! Come join us as campers transform into pirates through a variety of STEM-focused science experiments and hands-on engineering design activities. Some activities will include learning to make a treasure map, searching for buried treasure, tying knots to design their own pirate ships. Throughout the week we will voyage through the seven seas and explore the depths of the ocean. By the end of the week, campers will be singing “Yo ho ho, it’s a pirate’s life for me!

Session 4 (July 12-16): Mission Impossible

Is your camper the next James Bond or Lance Sterling? Maybe they're more of a Q or Walter Beckett. Regardless, this is the camp for them! We'll learn all the tricks to becoming the ultimate spy. Get ready because your mission starts now.

Session 3 (July 6-9): Blast From the Past

Explore the past through the wonders and magic of time travel. Whether campers hit 88 mph in their DeLoreans, catch a ride on a time sled, wear a time-turner, or travel by TARDIS, campers will have the chance to build their own time machine. They will explore different time periods of the past, including the Wild West, Renaissance, Roaring 20s, Groovy 70's, and much more. Who knows what campers will discover? Time travel won't be impossible forever.

Session 7 (August 2-6): LEGO Mania

Five fun-filled days of LEGO awesomeness are waiting! Campers will create a variety of LEGO builds while learning, building, and exploring different LEGO themes each day. Campers will use their imaginations to create LEGO-themed crafts, and interact with all sorts of LEGO contraptions.

​It’s a bit of LEGO overload, but that’s a good thing!

Session 5 (July 19-23): Splish Splash!

Just add water to make a week of crazy fun!

Campers will beat the heat each day by getting to play in the water. Super-soaker fun and water relay contests will make sure there is not a dry eye in the place. We will squirt, splash and soak our way to laughter. (Don't forget to bring another set of clothes…or you will be all washed up!) This is water fun at its best!

Session 8 (August 9-13): Herons Ever After

Journey into the land of fairy tales, magic, and more! Be sure to grab your favorite wisecracking sidekick and your travel essentials (ruby slippers? helpful reindeer?) as we venture into the unknown. We'll have fun discovering the secrets of Oz, the wizarding world, Underland, and more during this exciting last week of camp. You don't want to miss it!

Session 1 (June 21-25): Out Of This World!

Prepare to blast off to space during our first week of camp! We'll visit alien worlds, complete astronaut training, and even sample space foods. It's going to be a week of out of this world fun and you won't want to miss it!

Session 2 (June 28-July 2): Marvelous Herons

Are you an Avenger in training? Do you love comics and cartoons?

Campers will tap into their inner superhero during this action-packed week! After designing and creating their own superhero costume, campers will train to join the Junior Avengers. While the superheroes we see in movies are really cool, so are the real-life superheroes we will meet this week, including firefighters and police officers.
