Ages 5-9. Marshal Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau, led the French expeditionary forces through Princeton in August 1781 to help the Continental Army capture Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown. Marching from Phillipsburg, NY, across New Jersey on separate routes, the allied forces united just north of Princeton, followed by the encampment of Rochambeau’s army of 5,000 men on the grounds of Morven on August 29-31, 1781. To commemorate we will spend the week on the site of Rochambeau’s encampment focusing on the crafts and art forms being created during the Revolutionary War era - portraits, miniature portraits, pen and ink landscapes and doll-making, quilt-making, and basketry. Masters of this era like John Singleton Copley, Benjamin West, John Trumbull and Gilbert Stuart will all be explored. There is a monument to this encampment on the grounds of Trinity Church we will visit during that week.
It’s the end of summer and we saved the best for last! Join us for one last week of exciting science exploration, experimentation, and building! Designed around our favorite maker and S.T.E.A.M science projects from this and past summers, this camp will bounce between themes each day to make sure we highlight the best of the best. From the study of forces to electronics, from ooey-gooey chemistry to the cutting edge of 3D Printing and laser cutters, we have tons of fun science to explore and hands-on projects to make. Sign up for the whole week or by the day (depending on availability - call us after August 20th) and make sure you end your summer with a bang!
Camps are available Monday to Friday with 2 daily sessions to choose from: 9am-12pm and/or 1pm-4pm. There is a different Camp Theme every 2 weeks: Jungle Safari, Gymnastics, Ninja Training, Carnival & STEAM. During Camp, children will enjoy structured gym activities revolving around the theme, music/dancing, free play, arts/crafts, and snack time. You may sign up for all ten weeks or pick the amount of sessions that work for you and secure those dates in advance. If you want to drop in for the day, 2-day notice is required.
