Puppetry & Storytelling

Are you into music? Do you want to experience and learn what DJ’s do to rock parties all over the word? Come join in the fun at In the Mix – DJ Camp, where you will learn the skills of one of the coolest career/hobbies. In just a week, campers will learn the skills that are essential to a beginning DJ, including the history of song structure, beat mixing, equipment set-up, basic scratching and DJ technology. At the end of the session the camper will have the knowledge and tools to perform an awesome DJ set in front of the class that will have you tapping your feet and dancing! This is led by PDS’ own Darius Young, aka DJ Darius the 1st! A local legend who DJs many local clubs, parties and can be heard rocking out Princeton University football and basketball games. All levels are welcome, don’t miss this amazing opportunity! Grades 5–8, maximum 10

Campers will listen to stories and then make several types of puppets related to the stories. Puppets will be made from popsicle sticks, socks, recycled materials and more! Stories may include themes like Reluctant Dragon, Beauty and the Beast or Dinosaurs after Dark. Puppetry and storytelling are wonderful ways to reengage campers’ imagination through self-expression.

Summertime Yoga Come spend the morning practicing authentic yoga techniques to energize you then practice relaxation during your summer break. The first part of our session will be focused around physical poses which increase strength, flexibility and mind-body coordination. The last half of our daily session will be focused around relaxation, reflection and yoga-inspired projects revolving around mindfulness and boosting a positive self-image. Sessions will be led by Ann Robideaux, founder of Asana Alphabet Yoga and PDS’ home dance and yoga teacher. Please wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. We have yoga mats on site or feel free to bring your own. Grades 2–5 Journal Writing Creativity, self-expression, written word, art, imagination are the palette you will use to author your own journal-but there’s a twist! Each student will receive suggested themes & an identical blank sketchbook/journal to create. We will start the creative process here with pens, markers, paints, sparkles, etc. then you will take it with you & finish by a specific deadline. When you feel your sketchbook/journal is all that it can be, you will mail it away to be catalogued. Then it will take a journey on a book tour where curious people can read it before it settles into a little library where it will stay waiting to be checked out and read! Grades 5–8

Grades 1–4

Architecture Would you like to see your ideas turn into threedimensional buildings? Do you have a vision for a future city or community that you want to build? Is there a structure in our world that you would like to recreate? In this class, you will learn about fundamental design and building strategies to make your ideas come to life. In this non-digital, all analog and hands on project based learning class, you can build homes, offices, buildings, schools, hospitals, sports arenas, shopping malls and so much more! We will use LEGOs, blocks, sticks, cardboard and more tangible items to design and build our very own creations. Grades 4–6 Bridges & Towers This program will allow campers to express their creativity and satisfy their desire to build and experiment. Students will learn the basics of architecture as they experience the joy of building and testing their very own bridges and towers! We will use a variety of materials such as paper, bass and balsa wood. No prior experience is necessary, as we will guide them from start to finish. Campers will learn the building and designing process, and apply it to create bridges/towers. Every day they will challenge themselves and compete with their group in a fun, friendly and supportive environment. Grades 2–5 Theater Acting In this introduction class, you will learn theater techniques such as vocal projection, physical presence and embodying characters on stage. Through acting, you will develop selfconfidence, creative insight and the ability to engage with the audience. Short plays will be rehearsed and performed. Grades 5–8


Is your child a future lawmaker? Mock Congress will give them a glimpse of their future. This class will simulate the United States Congress. Campers will take on the role of individual lawmakers. They will research contemporary issues and challenges, craft legislation, discuss and debate resolutions, and ultimately vote on bills. This program will focus on politics, debate, and public policy. Grades 5–8 Model UN Campers will have the opportunity to interact with real world issues in the Model UN program. They will take on the role of UN representatives and research global events and trends. They will explore and craft different solutions to these issues, then learn leadership skills while they negotiate with representatives who may have a different perspective. Campers will gain an understanding of modern world events and how nations work together in this engaging simulation. Grades 5–8

Clay Oven Cooking Cook outside in the PDS clay oven using fresh food and eggs from the garden and chickens, as well as baking breads, pies and desserts. The emphasis will be the use of the clay oven and we’ll even try our hand cooking over an open fire. Students will learn to use appropriate cooking tools and materials. Lots of good food and fun. Grades 3–5 PDS Escape Room Campers decipher puzzles and take on challenges while working in groups to develop problem-solving skills. By collaborating with one another, they will build trust and confidence through working together to “win” their challenge. Each escape room challenge will feature a historical period with a new one presented each day. At the end of the class, they will reflect on the experience and talk about the pros and cons of their group’s decisions as well as their individual efforts. This program enhances analytical thinking, resilience and teamwork.
