OUS Offers a Variety of Summer Day Camps for Area Youth

The Oxford University School, a private 2K through eighth-grade accredited school, will be offering several weekly-themed summer camps in art, music, gardening, robotics and more.

The Summer Camp Programs begin on June 3 and end July 26. The flexible half-day or full-day summer camp programs offer parents and children multiple options for creative learning and fun throughout the summer months.

The school is located at 200 OUS Drive in Oxford.

Half and full-day programs are offered for children ages 3 to 7 years old with weekly themes such as “Under the Sea,” “Rock Star,” “Mad Scientist/Outer Space,” “Gardening Fun,” “Curtain Call (Drama),” “Dinosaurs” and “Edible Creations.”

Additionally, there is a Coding Camp for rising second- through eighth-graders and a Robotics Camp for first- through third-graders.

“Our Robotics Summer Camp gives children an introductory experience into the world of robotics. They will build and use an autonomous robot to solve certain tasks that will help increase their abilities to understand mathematics and scientific concepts,” said Kim Chrestman, head of school. “It’s fun to see their faces light up when they learn a new concept.”

Oxford University School 2019 Summer Camp Offerings Include:

Eagle’s Nest Camp – Ages 3 to 7 years – begins June 3 and ends July.
Each week features a different theme, including: Under the Sea, Music/Rock Star, Curtain Call/Drama, Backyard Gardening, Mad Scientist/Outer Space, Dinosaurs and Cooking/Edible Creations. Half-day and full-day options are offered. Highly qualified OUS teachers and assistants lead the camps each week.

Coding Camp – for beginners – Rising second-through through eighth-graders – June 3–7
The OUS Coding Camp will be led by University of Mississippi Professor Edgar Serrano who teaches computer and Spanish at OUS. This camp is for children who are interested in technology. The Coding Camp will provide a foundation for computer programming by learning the use of visual blocks and following a sequence of steps, looping and critical thinking to solve different challenges. Students will have to figure out how to solve the necessary steps to make the game work and additional challenges will elevate the learning experience of each student. This camp allows students to learn at their own pace and give room for each student’s creativity to grow.

Robotics Camp/LEGO WeDo Camp– first- through third-graders – June 24-28
Oxford University School has teamed up with The Center for Mathematics and Science Education at the University of Mississippi to offer Robotics Summer Camps for all Oxford children and the surrounding communities. The OUS Robotics camps will be led by Mannie Lowe, a Mississippi FIRST Tech Challenge Project Manager with CMSE at The University of Mississippi. The camp will feature the LEGO WeDo 2.0 system, providing an exciting introductory experience into the world of robotics. Students will build models around science-based themes and program a motor and sensor to move and react using a drag-and-drop interface.
