In the Full-Day Combination Summer Program (grades 3 – 7) academic classes are complemented by fun and challenging afternoon activities. Teamwork and hands-on activities allow students to get outside and enjoy our beautiful coastal campus, develop leadership and verbal communication skills, make friends – and just enjoy the summer. Students choose from Explorations (Marine Science and Adventure Ropes), Creations (Visual Arts, Drama, and 3-D Building), and Mountain Biking.
Sample Activity Offerings
Explorations —Grades 3–7
Marine Science and Adventure Ropes are offered in consecutive segments for small groups of students in grades 3 through 7. Students are divided into two groups based on their age and grade.
With the benefit of having the Atlantic Ocean at our doorstep, students enjoy field trips, lab activities, kayaking, an introduction to snorkeling, and exploration of our local coastal ecosystems.
Younger students use Landmark's climbing wall and low ropes elements to engage in fun, problem-solving group activities, as well as nature explorations and arts-oriented activities. Older students use the outdoor course, engaging in games and confidence-building on the climbing wall, low ropes, and high ropes elements.
Creations & Improvisations—Grades 3–7
Visual Art and Drama are offered in consecutive afternoon segments. Students are divided into two groups based on their age and grade.
For those students who love to create, this program hones their skills and stretches their imagination through drawing, painting, sculpting, mixed media, crafting, and various iPad apps. Students create 2-D, 3-D, and digital art projects.
Do you have a budding actor or actress at home? This summer, the drama group will learn basic acting skills with particular focus on improvisation, character building, and scene study. Students will be given a wonderful opportunity to be creative and have fun flexing their performance muscles!
Mountain Biking—Grades 5–7
The mountain biking program offers students a five-week program of riding instruction, basic bicycle repair, and trail maintenance. With a focus on fun and safety, the goal is to help students become stronger, more confident, and independent riders.
