About The Writing/ Spanish Instructor

Angie Marino, Dual-Language Teacher for grades K-3 and published author of Lemurs!, believes that every child has intriguing ideas. She is looking forward to leading campers in a clear, step-by-step manner that will encourage timid writers and guide eager authors. Her innovative Spanish camp curriculum is equally fun for all experience levels.

Kim Murdock helps campers tackle the 'blank canvas'. Her proven step-by-step method of instruction will lead new and returning campers confidently forward as they enjoy a non-competitive approach to the fundamentals of art in a relaxed, fun camp setting. 


Summer Camps - In A Nutshell

Locations/ Dates/ Themes

Art Camps - Kim's afternoon art camps (12:30-4:00, M-F) encourage children to embark on an artistic journey, inspired by each week's fun theme. She strives to teach her campers to be creative problem solvers. There are no mistakes in art!

Writing Camps - Angie's morning writing camps (9:00-12:30, M-F) are enriching and educational, not dry or academic. Games and activities will be used to inspire creative thinking and to practice phonics (and grammar skills!) that will refine each child's writing. Campers will complete a unique piece of writing each day. Angie has custom designed her lessons to inspire and engage children ages 5-11 with fun themes. 

Spanish Camp - Angie will practice Spanish with morning campers (9:00-12:30) (August 7-11) by introducing fun projects, games and speaking activities!

Book Creation Camps

About Lemurs - These weeks of camp are designed as a full day camp because campers will illustrate and write a book about lemurs. Illustrations will be created in the afternoon camps to support the writing in the morning camps. If you choose a half day option for a lemur camp your child will only create half of a book. Please Note: The daily walking tour (to see the lemurs) is from 12:30-1:00. Your child must be registered for full day or the afternoon art camp to participate in the tour.

About Wildcats - This week of camp is designed as a full day camp because campers will illustrate and write a book about wildcats. Illustrations will be created in the afternoon camps to support the writing in the morning camps. If you choose a half day option for a lemur camp your child will only create half of a book. Please Note: The daily walking tour (to see the wildcats) is from 12:30-1:00. Your child must be registered for full day or the afternoon art camp to participate in the tour.

About Horses - This week of camp is designed as a full day camp because campers will illustrate and write a book about horses. Illustrations will be created in the afternoon camps to support the writing in the morning camps. If you choose a half day option for a lemur camp your child will only create half of a book.
