Aventuras Summer Camp 2019!
Join us for our THIRD fun filled summer of daring adventure! Our Aventuras Summer Camp has something that every child will love! Whether it’s whipping up something tasty with our Top Chefs, engaging their STEM minds within our Coding Lab, mastering insane Dude Perfect trick shots, or trying to stay above water during Shark Week, your child will be sure to have a blast! In addition to our action-packed weekly themed adventures, campers will enjoy weekly trips to the pool, delicious pizza lunches, frozen yogurt to cool down on these hot summer days and fantastic field trips every Friday! What makes our Aventuras Summer Camp unique? Our amazing and talented counselors are fully bilingual, allowing for a fun Spanish language component of our camps!
 
 
No Child Left Inside: June 24th – June 28th
 
Before the steamy Washington DC summer is in full swing, we will venture outside to see all of the wonder that the great outdoors has to offer us! Throughout the week we will explore the world around us as trench through nature streams, discover animal tracking, engineer tents, star gaze into the deep night sky, cook our own snacks and s’more! We will finish the week with our extreme field trip to Sandy Springs Rope Course, where we will climb high above the ground for this fun zip-line adventure!

Spy School: July 1st – July 5th (Aventuras will be closed on Thursday, July 4th)
 
Our Aventuras spies will enroll in an action-packed week of developing their secret spy abilities. We will uncover layers of deception as we reveal a world of secret double agents. Our spies will have to work together to determine who the true villains are through polygraph testing, decrypting audio conversations, conducting video surveillance and weighing the evidence at hand. We hope the Aventuras spies can escape before the double agent is revealed!

Throughout the week, we will learn of simple machines and what makes the daily objects in our lives tick. We will discover Newton’s Laws of Motion with Bumper Boats, spin through Centrifugal Force, and gain a greater understanding of gravity as we start our engines and engineer a race car of our very own!
