WEEKLY SCHEDULE

Jun 8 – 12:  Skills n'Thrills

May the magical 2020 Summer Camp begin!  We are starting off with a bang, sponsored once again by the pros (and super fun coaches) of UK International Soccer Camps, Inc. Their age appropriate curriculum includes "Fun in the Sun", "Skills 'n' Thrills" and "Compete with your Feet" programs, and their focus is on developing the whole player as an athlete and as a person, and provide the kids with the tools and self-belief to reach their goals on and off the field.  If you like sports and movement, regardless of your skill level, you will love this dynamic and engaging week, which is guaranteed to boost your self-esteem!  

In addition to soccer, we’ll offer lots of other opportunities to enjoy sports and field games.  Every participant will receive a complimentary soccer ball and a t-shirt!

Jun 15 – 19:  Classic Woody

This belly busting week is all about team building, friendships, and collaborative play. Aside from helping to navigate social relationships and interact with others in a meaningful way, team building exercises celebrate diversity, foster problem solving, and promote the understanding that a well-functioning team is stronger than the sum of its individual members.  We'll play kids’ favorites like Scategories, Minute To Win It, and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.  We’ll add in plenty of outdoor collaborative activities, board games, and crafts.  Shake it all up, add a splash of water play, an 80's twist, and get a fabulous week of memorable experiences!  Wait, but there’s more!  It’s tie-dye time!  This week we will also be tie-dying our 2020 edition camp T-shirt.  If you’ve been with us before, wear your vintage camp t-shirts and show your Woody Woods spirit!  If you haven't, feel free to wear flashy, bright clothes.  Either way, you're in for a treat!

Jul 22 – 26:  Travel Around the World in 5 Days

All aboard!  Buckle your seat belt, we are about to take off and embark on a fantastic journey around the world!  Every day we will stop in a different country and explore the culture, language, art, and food.  We will build unique souvenirs, write and mail postcards, and learn about children’s daily lives in different places around the world.  And, while we are at it, we will get familiar with cartography (the practice of drawing maps), review maps’ keys, study lines of latitude & longitude, the equator and the prime meridian.  Multi-instrumentalist Amber Field will bring her wide cinstruments from all over the world and engage us in a rich musical journey through a variety of rhythms and sounds.  A A specialist in world fusion music, Amber has entertained audiences all over the world.  Gain knowledge of the world and run loose around the globe without ever leaving Woodroe!

Jun 30 – Jul 2:  Stars and Stripes

It’s party time in the USA!  And party we will, as we savor the most American of meals: a BBQ with hot dogs, veggies, watermelon, and apple pie!  This week is a little shorter than the others (and cheaper), but definitely not less entertaining: jump your heart out for two days in the inflatable bouncy house, play games, make crafts, and sing songs inspired by Old Glory.  We have also invited police officer Calvin Watson (beloved Woodroe Dad) to come give an important presentation about safety and let us have a close look at his patrol car. Come spend this pre-holiday time with us, we are throwing a birthday party for America! 

Jul 6 – 10:  Star Wars STEM

Our STEM week this year takes on a whole new dimension!  Young Padawans are invited to experience a load of challenges and engaging activities as they blast their way through space.  The Woodroe Master Jedi have planned several special workshops.  We will Build a Galaxy With the geeks of Hour of Code, concoct in-house engineering contraptions, play a variety of math games including Star Wars Sudoku, and learn about space in an inflatable planetarium with Mr. Allan Stern, who has given hundreds of astronomy presentations, including at NASA Space Camp!  Care to taste some blue milk with us?

Jul 13 – 17:  Wizards, Beasts, Fairies, and Fantasy

Into the woods, through the back of the wardrobe, down the rabbit hole, what do you find? Touch the magic stone, cast a spell, ask the mirror, what happens next? Fly on the back of a dragon, roll with a troll, laugh with an ogre, who gets to share your adventure?  The clocks on the walls at Woodroe will stop for a week (or 100 years...) of Fantasy and Fiction!  Immerse yourself in ageless kingdoms of wonder and explore the art and enjoyment of storytelling.  Use classic tales, myths, and movies to inspire work, imagining your own characters, adventures, and happily-ever-afters. Highlights of the week will include reader’s theater, dress-up games, crafting whimsical garden houses, illustrating your own flip book, cooking up potions, and flying origami paper creatures. We will also enjoy a special appearance by Grammy nominated storyteller Diane Ferlatte and her musical sidekick Erik Pearson on banjo and guitar. Diane is a multi-award winning performer who has captivated audiences across six continents.

July 20 – 24:  Rethink, Reinvent, Reimagine

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle... to which we add: Rethink, Reinvent, Reimagine!  It's Art week!

Art weeks at Woodroe are always very popular, and a great opportunity for kids to explore art with a twist.  This year, we will take an eco-friendly approach, and mess around with a vast array of recycled materials. Campers will learn about the amazing things that can be created using discarded scraps and repurposed objects. Bay Area teaching artist Donna Bradley, in collaboration with The East Bay Depot For Creative Reuse, is going to showcase her art right here at camp and lead an art class focused on reuse. She will bring a load of salvaged items from the depot and spark our inspiration to produce our own unique masterpieces. 

The Recycled Art week is all about environmentally conscious expression and creativity. As the saying goes... One man's trash is another camper's treasure!

July 27 – 31:  Woodroe's Got Talent

Calling on all aspiring performers!  This campers’ favorite week allows anyone to showcase a variety of individual or group acts.  Whether you have any experience or not, join us on Woodroe’s full size stage, equipped with lighting and mics.  You can participate in lip sinking battles, skits, comedy, singing, playing instruments, dancing, and any combination.  Famed Bay Area saxophonist Dave Ellis will perform for our campers.  His impressive career and many accomplishments can be found here.  Plus, for the whole week, Rhasaan Sherrill of Beat Box Academy, will lead a hip-hop workshop that will culminate in two shows on Friday.  In a positive, no-pressure, and encouraging environment, you’ll learn different techniques and help decide the moves for the show.  Dance improves health, self-esteem, creativity, fosters social and communication skills, encourages team work, engenders a greater sense of trust and cooperation and helps make new friends.  Let your inner star shine, and show us what you’ve got!

August 3 – 7:  Olympic Games

No need to fly to Tokyo!  We are celebrating the Olympic Games right here at Woodroe.  After crafting our own torch and medals, we will play sports and games with a fun twist.  We will learn about the life and achievements of famous athletes and meet local professional athletes who will stop by to inspire us, lead drills, and play with us! A guest coach from The Positive Coaching Alliance is coming to Woodroe to lead a Jr. Triple-Impact Competitor Workshop. This fun and hands-on session focuses on not fearing mistakes, but using them to learn and improve; treating one's teammates, opponents and officials with respect; and understanding the power of positivity and how it can lead to success for teams and individuals. Finally, we will close out the summer camp with our own Olympic Ceremony, celebrating the unique opportunities afforded by sport to transcend barriers and prejudices and pursue one’s best. 

We can’t think of a better way to send the kids off to a brand new school year!
