Class Experience

Campers will literally create and host a kid-sized circus for guests!

Campers Will Learn to:

-Plan for short and long term goals
-Support a peer group in a shared goal
-Organize, recruit, and delegate
-Problem solve 
-Use resources wisely
-Reflect and present on goal completion 

Campers will want and need to spend some time outside of class preparing for the culminating event (the circus), as well as the reflection project. Time spent outside of class will ultimately be up to the student, taking into consideration personal motivation, creativity, and resources. 
The minimum suggested time outside of class is one and one half to two hours per week. 
1. PDF Planning Workbook for printing provided 24 hours before first day of class each week
   (Part 1 before Week 1, Part 2 before Week 2, Part 3 before Week 3)

2. Items from home may include common household items and general craft supplies throughout the course, but no specific items are required. 

- kitchen items and ingredients (cost will depend on what the camper, with their guardian, choose to provide- no need to be exorbitant)
- outdoor furniture, sports equipment on hand, outdoor play items such as chalk and jump ropes
- clothing such as hats, old costumes, party items
- poster board, paint, markers, etc. 

Emphasis WILL be placed on using supplies on hand, however, if you and your child decide together that something needs to be purchased to create or enhance something already being made, you may do so! 

Please note- this is an experience that campers should design and put together as much as possible on their own. They will ask for some support and help, but they will be guided to be very independent. The final product should have a "kid" signature!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
