EXPLORE CAMP ACTIVITIES

Listed below is a sampling of the types of activities your child will enjoy at TCR-On-The-Hudson day camp.

FIELD HOCKEY

Field hockey dates back to the middle ages in Scotland, but it is still popular throughout the world today. This weeklong camp is offered for girls.. Athletes will learn formations, positions, set plays, strategies, goal keeping, variations on the game, penalties, safety and will teach the rules of the game. This will be a great week of fitness and field hockey fun.

LACROSSE

Lacrosse is known historically as a sport of the Iroquois, much followed by the French and English in colonial times. It still enjoys tremendous popularity in North America today. This weeklong program for boys will teach athletes to use the long-handled lacrosse stick with a safety lacrosse ball. Passing, shooting, set plays, formations, offensive and defensive positions, rules of the game will be taught. This will be an energetic week of skills and playing lacrosse will be long lasting memory.

BASKETBALL (BOYS AND GIRLS)

Originally created in New England using a ball and a peach basket, this amazing, fast moving sport was designed to keep students fit throughout the long winters. Now played by boys and girls throughout the year, these weeklong camps will teach athletes the most current rules and strategies, dribbling, passing, shooting, free throws, and team work. Though the ball has changed a bit over time, basketball remains a blast!

SOCCER (BOYS AND GIRLS)

Soccer has become one of the most popular international sports for children and adults alike. Student athletes will enjoy learning the positions, offense, defense, passing, dribbling, shooting, goal keeping, goal kick, corner kick, throw ins, and all the rules of the game. Running, fitness, and stupendous soccer will supply these boys and girls with something special this summer.

FLAG RUGBY

This is a mixed-gender version of rugby without the contact, now very popular in America among elementary and middle school students. At this level, athletes are learning to run with the ball, pass the ball, and score. The rules of the game grow with the age of the children and introduce open field kicking and additional strategies at the higher levels. This fast-paced field game is a great way to keep active and fit. You’ll flip for flag rugby, America’s latest craze.

FENCING

With America now becoming increasingly competitive on the International Fencing scene, Olympic Silver Medalist Tim Morehouse has inspired us with his new Fencing-in-the-schools training model and equipment. The fencers in our program will learn the difference between the different weapons and will enjoy this fast-paced, physical, and mental sport. Fencing will prepare you for almost anything. Move your feet, outsmart your opponent, develop the quickness and fitness for life. Four footwork skills, four blade-work skills, honor, and Olympic values will be taught. En garde!

INTRODUCTION TO COOL SCIENCE

Gathering and preparing slides of insects, cheek cells, hair, onions, and more. Collecting gases, making things explode, building egg mobile cars, preparing a parachute drop, building bungee experiments, paper and model airplanes, catapults, scribble-bots, experiments with electricity, mouse trap cars, boomerangs, ice cream and other science experiments you can eat. This is just a taste of what you will do.

COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY

This technology camp includes a range of skills and activities that are practical and fun. Designing newsletters, brochures, and cards. Programming of shapes, scenes, and mazes using Micro-World’s, Scratch, and Code.Org. Creating spreadsheets, graphs, and tackling a myriad of math games.

THEATER AND PERFORMING ARTS

“All the world’s a stage,” said William Shakespeare. This group will enjoy theater games, writing and performing skits, and song and dance. Upstage, downstage, all around the stage. Actors will learn about projecting their voices, developing their character, and will present some creative scenes to the rest of the summer program.

Painting, sculpting with toothpicks, pipe cleaners, and paper. Sculpting and glazing with clay. Collages, wire sculptures, still life, pressing flowers, and the art of photography and framing. This will really make an impression on you. “This world is but a canvas to our imagination,” said Henry David Thoreau.

CHESS

Learning the way pieces move, best opening moves, and developing a strategy. Thinking ahead and predicting your opponent’s strategy. Shifting gears, castling, check, and checkmate. Learning elementary, intermediate, and advanced strategies. Electronic chess. “Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem solve in an uncertain environment,” said chess champion Garry Kasparov.

ROBOTICS

Downloading instructions from computer to the robots. Learning to program motion sensors, touch and sound sensors. “I never think of the future – it comes soon enough,” said Albert Einstein.
