Primary UYP Camp

This camp is for students who will be entering Grades 1–4 in Fall 2019. Two one-week options are offered.

Creative Problem Solving: Rocket Into Space
June 3–7, 2019 (8:30 a.m.–2 p.m.)
Dean Highland Elementary

In this weeklong camp, students will learn and use creative problem solving (CPS) skills to investigate a “mess” related to families and children living in a space station. Discoveries will be made by teams of students in areas such as training, life support, recreation, nutrition, communication, and transportation and how these might affect those in the space station. Students will share their innovative solutions in an open-house showcase on the last day of camp.

Digging Deeper: Discovering and Exploring Your Passion
June 10–14, 2019 (8:30 a.m.–2 p.m.)
Dean Highland Elementary

In this weeklong camp, students will identify a topic of interest that they would like to explore more in depth. Teachers will guide them as they learn the steps to conduct an independent study to facilitate their research. Students will use a variety of strategies and technology to explore their passion area and develop a product of their choice to share in an open-house showcase on the last day of camp.
