One of our most popular camp programs is back! All lawyers at Camp Brainy Bunch will participate in fun activities that will give their communication and critical thinking skills a serious workout. Through skits, plays and fairy tale mock trials, our young lawyers will gain experience in public speaking. Visit the curriculum tab below for more details!
Rising 1st-2nd graders
Your young lawyer will work on the essential skills of public speaking and how to consider multiple perspectives as they perform skits, plays, and reader’s theater pieces. This program, formerly called Take the Stage, will have a legal leaning this year as our youngest lawyers learn that there are sometimes two (or more!) sides to every story. Parents are encouraged to come on the last day and watch the final performance.
Rising 3rd-4th graders
Our lawyers will definitely have their day in court as they put famous fairy tale characters on trial. On the schedule for summer 2019 are Aladdin, Humpty Dumpty, and Little Red Riding Hood! Students will explore many parts of the legal system, from learning the roles in a courtroom to writing closing statements. At the same time, they will be building communication skills, learning to identify multiple perspectives, and think critically.
Rising 5th-6th graders
All rise! Our oldest lawyers will build on and extend their foundational understanding of the legal system at this engaging camp. On the schedule for summer 2019 are Humpty Dumpty, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, and Little Red Riding Hood! Students will learn how to make objections and how to craft the best questions for witnesses. At the same time, they will be building communication skills, learning to identify multiple perspectives, and to think critically.
