Clayton-Bradley held its inaugural fall “Camp CBA” from Sept. 23-28. Geared towards elementary and middle school students interested in STEM, Art, and Sports, the theme was “Build It.” Eventually, the program will extend to students outside of CBA, furthering the school’s purpose to “ignite the power of learning.”
Elementary school students rotated through stations in, “gymnastics, engineering, art, and brain-training games.” Middle schoolers were given the opportunity to choose an intensive program in which they would spend four out of five hours each day. Introduction to sports was an intensive that introduced middle schoolers to a wide variety of sports like golf, volleyball and gymnastics. This program gave students a fun, positive learning environment during fall break.
High school students played a special role in Camp CBA. High schoolers volunteered as camp counselors throughout the week helping with each of the programs, lunch, and camp gatherings. Fostering community between lower school students and high schoolers, this also offered those volunteering an opportunity to receive community service hours. The experience was rewarding noted Emily Wheeler, a Junior, “I love entertaining kids and putting smiles on their faces. So far, I’ve accomplished my goals!”
