Different topic for each week

As parents, you now can choose which topics your child may enjoy and just place them in those camps.  Even though attending each topic camp for the entire week is recommended, campers can choose to come in for half a day session or just a few days of the week.

#1 - Makutu’s "Summer Learning and Fun camp series"

These learning-based activity camps have a new topic for each week.  Bringing the best teachers and having them design a tailor made curriculum with each week focussing on a topic for ages 6 -14 is not only fun but helps give a taste of multiple subjects.  The classes have been designed by active and accomplished teachers with extensive experience in their respective fields.  Camps touch on myriad of topics that enrich physical and mental strength.  Campers learn about making a contribution to the society.  Activities involve reading, writing, speaking, learning, research, and meditation, communication, exploration and more.

#2 - Play-Well TEKnologies "STEM Engineering Kids Camps"

Makutu's Island understands the enthusiasm to teach Engineering to Kids and have partnered with well-recognized Play-Well TEKnologies. They have been Teaching Engineering to Kids for 20+ years in 28 states. Play-Well TEKnologies provides project-based programs designed to teach principles and methods of engineering to children, ages 5 - 14, using LEGO®. That curriculum is designed by engineers, building on the math and science skills students learn during the school year. Utilizing over 20,000 pieces of LEGO® for each class, we engage our students in solving real-world engineering challenges that explore concepts in physics, architecture, and engineering. Our goal is to have our students foster a greater appreciation of how things work, and encourage the qualities of inquisitiveness, self-reliance, and self-confidence in children. STEM, Minecraft, LEGO and Robotics fans will appreciate to be in their camp that runs just for 2 focussed weeks in June and July.

Through hands-on adventure, fun, games, listening, learning and experimenting, your child will learn a lot of things that are normally not taught at school.  

All camps will be conducted in the classroom.  Campers will have an opportunity to play during the “Island time” break daily at Makutu’s Island during the designated play times.  Play area has towering trees filled with tunnels, tubes, mole-holes, slides, climbs, mysterious caves, 35-ft snake slide, a zip tracker, an arcade, and so much more.
