Guild of Vinci (3rd-5th)
Rising 3rd – 5th grade students
Single Subject Immersion
6 Different Workshops to choose from
2 Workshop options each week
The Guild of Vinci is made up of our Master Learners (Rising 3rd-5th Grade). Members of the Guild of Vinci gain workshop mastery through full immersion in a single subject of study. In each weeklong session, campers are guided through exciting learning activities that are full of rich, fun content designed to develop skills for academic success. We push learning and community further by instilling in campers group communication skills, brainstorming, and character development. In these workshops campers gain the knowledge and skills that set them on a course for future success.
