The same teacher from last year who we were all crazy about – is back! She had the kiddos drawing, and playing games, and singing while she played the piano and dancing and loving every minute of the camp! Even if your child is not a drawer - that's OK. They will follow simple rules that teach every child the basics of drawing - all the kiddos love it!

Come Join Us!

We’re excited to announce that the 2015 Parent Practicum theme will be science, emphasizing the building nature of science explorations: they lead to understanding and AWE. We begin with the grammar stage of curiosity and wonder, through the dialectic, and end with the rhetoric stage of awe in the face of dawning understanding. Wonder to wonder!

Morning speakers will present practical tools for giving your children a classical, Christian education at home. See the grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric stages of learning in every subject and discover how every subject glorifies God. The second half of the morning will be devoted to understanding the art of inquiry.

Afternoon facilitators will demonstrate practical tools for teaching investigation and science. (Afternoon topics may vary.)
