Following the great success of the past 2 years Greek Summer Camp, we are happy to announce that Odyssey Charter School will be offering the camp once again this year.
The Greek Summer Camp at Odyssey Charter School provides an opportunity for existing students to increase their exposure to the Greek culture and language through a variety of fun indoor and outdoor activities. Odyssey’s goal is to have each child make real progress in his or her new language in an enjoyable, carefree and relaxed atmosphere.
The Camp is giving our students an opportunity to converse and interact with our team of Greek native-speaking teachers, and gain language competency and understanding of Greek customs and age old traditions.
Campers spend each day moving from one activity to the next, including special “No English” times, designed to provide an immersion experience while still allowing for a ton of fun.
In addition to Greek Language instruction, campers will also enjoy theater, “A Day in Ancient Greece”, art, computer, Greek traditional games, sports and yoga. Activity types will alternate between hands-on and visual learning experiences.
The day starts with a morning welcome followed by breakfast. Snacks will be offered throughout the day. Best of all, a lunch of traditional Greek/Mediterranean cuisine will be freshly baked by experienced Greek cooks.
The camp will be offered for two weeks: June 16 to the 20th and June 23 to the 27th. Parents will have the option of signing up for one or both weeks. Only OCS students presently enrolled in grades 1 to 6 are eligible to sign for the Greek Summer Camp.
Camp hours will be 9:00am - 3:00pm with the optional provision of before and/or aftercare.
The Camp has the capability of accommodating up to 130 students, so parents are strongly encouraged to register early.
