Conference Week Camp
Is This Week!
(Registration is CLOSED)
Lots of Fun!
Camaraderie, friendship, and collaboration are part of why students are grouped by grade!
ALL OPUSD ELEMENTARY STUDENTS WELCOME!
Students from Brookside, Red Oak, and Oak Hills Elementary schools are all welcome to participate in Conference Week Camp! Students will meet our Growing Outdoors staff at the lunch tables on each of the school campuses. After a quick supervised lunch brought from home, students and staff from Red Oak and Oak Hills will ride our seat-belted school bus over to Brookside Elementary, where they will join students from Brookside. Students from all three schools will be grouped by grade and will have an opportunity to meet some new friends that also go to school in the district!
What is Conference Week Camp?
During the week of conferences, families expressed how hard it can be to have several short school days in a row. Growing Outdoors wanted to find a way to help to solve this problem. Created with the same principles as our After-school Enrichment program, Conference Week Camp is designed to give children an opportunity to develop their 21st century skills like critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.
How Is It Different?
Starting with the structure, Conference Week Camp is exactly that; a week long program where students are grouped by grade, with other students from within the district. Each group will be assigned a counselor, and together they will go from activity to activity together. Starting with some name games to help the students get to know each other, students will have a chance to build friendships, while having fun, with the guidance of our exceptionally trained staff members!
