Have you ever wanted to learn American Sign Language? Here is your
chance! During this weeklong adventure, we will delve into the world of
talking with your hands, face, and body. We will cover the basics of American
Sign Language and touch upon deaf culture by learning about the different
tools that the hard of hearing use, as well as by interacting with those who
rely on sign language to communicate. No previous experience is required –
just a desire to learn to communicate in a new way!

Come explore the world of Anime/Manga! We will spend four days learning
about and drawing cartoons in the Anime/Manga style. We will discuss how
elements of Japanese culture are intertwined in this style. We will create
our own original characters and will use a variety of facial expressions and
actions to illustrate our scenes. On the final day, we will pull from what we
have learned to create a large comic book in the Anime/Manga style.

Let’s go beyond point and shoot and consider the concepts that help a
photographer shoot award-winning photographs. The first step is to gain an
understanding of the various parts of a digital camera. Next we will consider
exposure, depth of field, shutter speed, aperture, lens length, lighting, color
balance, and composition. We will go on at least two photo outings and then
bring our cameras into the lab to transfer the images. Using iPhoto, we will
organize and edit the images to prepare them for presentation. Students
will have a choice of Keynote, Powerpoint, iMovie, and iDVD to present their
images for viewing to the group. Students will be able to burn their images
to a CD or DVD to take with them at the end of the course.                                Graphic Design and Arts

We will learn about the building blocks of good nutrition, kinesiology, and
anatomy, including different muscle actions and reactions, and how to
build strength, endurance, and flexibility. We will also discover how dance
helps create a stronger mind-body connection. Learning fun combinations,
rhythms, and patterns will help instill this knowledge. We will explore
a variety of dance, including ballet, jazz, modern, Dunham, Caribbean,
ballroom, and salsa and will learn how to stretch and warm up properly
before dancing to lessen the risk of muscle injury. We will also incorporate
Pilates for core building and muscle strengthening. No previous experience
is necessary. Please bring a yoga mat, a beach towel, sneakers, and socks.

Rising K-6 | Session IV (M-Th) | Columbus
Crew Technical, Youth, and Camp Coaches
Morning (9a-11:30a) $135
This summer, the 2011 Columbus Crew soccer
camp will be offered for the fourth consecutive
year at Columbus Academy with nearly 50 participants at last year’s camp.
This camp is tailored to players from Kindergarten through sixth grade at any
skill level and will promote player development through technical proficiency
and fundamental tactical awareness in a caring and supportive environment.
The Crew believes in freedom of expression and provides unrestricted play
as a critical part of all camps. Designed for elite and recreational players,
boys and girls alike, campers will be put into a challenging environment
that demands good training habits and encourages the development of the
soccer player as part of a fun and rewarding experience. All campers will
enjoy a guest appearance by a Columbus Crew player, coach or technical
staff member and will receive a ticket to a 2011 Columbus Crew home game
and a Crew camp goodie.

Little Vikes Wrestling
Rising 3-7 | Session V (T-F) | Teacher: Sean Silver
Morning (9a-11:30a) $135
Wrestling is not only a blast, but it is also perhaps the best sport to develop
strength, coordination, fitness, self-confidence, and sportsmanship—lessons
integral for any sport and more importantly for life! It also allows anyone to
succeed, regardless of size or shape. The Little Vikes Wrestling clinic will
give incoming third through seventh graders of any ability level the chance
to learn the fundamentals of wrestling in a fun and safe environment. Each
wrestler will receive protective headgear and an end-of-session trophy.
Wrestling shoes are preferred but not required.
