Maharishi School offering two summer programs

May 17, 2013

Maharishi School is offering two summer programs: Pirate/Ninja Summer Camp and Nature Explore Summer Day Camp.

Middle school teachers Richard Incorvia and Barbara Hays, champions of project-based learning, will lead Pirate/Ninja Summer Camp, a summer program about rockets and programming video games and apps, for kids ages 12-15 9 a.m. to noon weekdays June 10-28.

Students can sign up by the week or for the entire session.

Kids will be programming using MIT AppInventor. The camp also will introduce code.org and hackety hack as tools for more advanced students.

Kids will build and launch rockets. The first rocket will be from a kit. Subsequent rockets will be made from scratch using paper, cardboard and wood.

Camp fees cover the cost of rocket kits and up to one engine per day.

The fee is $150 for one week; $125 a week for weeks or $100 a week for three weeks.

A deposit of $30 is due by May 24. The remainder is due on the first day of camp.

Space is limited so register early with Incorvia at incorvia@mrincorvia.com or Hays at mshays@mshays.com.

The second camp is the Nature Explore Summer Day Camp for children ages 4-10.

Children will explore artistic expression, water and sand play, gardening, large-motor games and activities and lots of fun and play in nature. Campers will swim in the Maharishi University of Management pool two times a week.

Camp is offered 9 a.m. to noon weekdays from June 10 to Aug 3.

Space is limited, and early-bird registration gives priority. Discounts are available by registering and paying before May 20 and for having more than one child attend.

The weekly rate is $125; two consecutive weeks is $200; four consecutive weeks is $360; and six consecutive weeks is $480; and seven consecutive weeks is $560.

Afternoon childcare is available for $5 an hour.
