Intro to Outdoor Adventure Sports Sampler (rising grades 4-6)

This daylong course is designed to be a less physically demanding introductory class offering day trips going top-rope rock climbing, caving, creek hiking, and a raft float trip. On Thursday the class will choose their Friday activity by majority vote to do one of the following: a lake trip to relax, paddle the kayaks, or have fun playing on a giant inner-tube and participating in different water and beach games; repeat a favorite activity from the week; or make up an activity that may have been missed due to bad weather. Each day trip requires only short walks to activity locations, and at the most beginner level of activity! Emphasis will be on offering fun first-time experiences that participants can build on in our "Adventure Sport Sampler" class in middle school. All safety equipment will be provided for each of these activities including climbing helmets, harnesses, and shoes; caving helmets and coveralls; & life jackets and water safety helmets. Participants must bring a bag lunch sealed in a zip-lock bag and drinks in plastic screw-top bottles each day! Course information packets will be sent to each student upon registration.

Volleyball (rising grades 6-9) NEW

Here is a great opportunity to bone up on your volleyball skills, or perhaps even be introduced to the sport for the first time! You will learn the basic skills for all levels and positions. Fundamentals (passing, setting, hitting, blocking, serving etc.) will be covered, as well as advanced techniques. In the classroom, you will spend time going over the rules of the game, offensive and defensive strategies, and positional roles. Out on the court, you will engage in skill drills, team drills, and fun activities to apply what you have learned. Towards the end of the week, you will begin competition-play, so you can put together all skills and experience real game-like situations. Important skills in teamwork as well as individual skills will aid you in becoming a good, well-rounded volleyball player. Comfortable clothing and tennis shoes are required.
