Ag Adventures

Popcorn, ice cream and magical seeds — each fun-filled activity is inspired by the products of living and working on the farm!

Art About You

Take time to learn more about yourself through art, journaling and other mediums of self-expression. What is your birth order? Do you know your Enigram number? Are you a grape, orange, melon or banana? Have you ever asked what your name means? We will use these and other fun paths to help us discover who we truly are and find out the potential for what we may become.

Beyond Your Imagination

Join us as we both explore literature and venture to the depths of our imaginations to explore our creativity in ways beyond paper. Look forward to theatrical readings, comical discussions and creative projects as we journey through stories together! 


If you want to learn to code or improve your coding skills join us for a day of coding fun! Multiple coding platforms will be explored so that you can pick which one you like best. We can't wait to see your creativity shine through your code!

DIY in July

DIY projects are a great way to learn new skills, uncover natural talents and increase self-reliance. Learn how to make chalk and a lava lamp, then create your own!

Future Vision

Fun and focused activities will help you look to the possibilities ahead of you and from there, you can determine what steps to take to help you on your path to reach those dreams. You’ll leave with a creative blueprint of your goals on a Vision Board that is uniquely you!

Neurographic Art

Come with an open mind to truly experience how the science of this art form works with the brain to transform challenges into positive change. Adding lines, shapes and colors can transform not only your artwork but also your overall outlook!  

Outdoor Creations

Learn about our planet and how you can help to protect it as you complete projects that are fun for you — and good for creatures outdoors! 

Painting with Passion

Create and share fun projects as you try your hand at the art of salt painting, pour art and puffy painting. 

Summer STEAM

Are you ready for summer STEAM challenges (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math)? It will be a morning packed full of activities you won't want to miss!

Way With Words

Explore fabulous vocabulary and create captivating artwork to go with it! Activities are inspired by author Jane O’Connor’s "Fancy Nancy" series.
