Hoop Dreams


The highlight of basketball camp is the campers vs. counselors game. By the end of the week the campers have drilled and played on a daily basis, and the counselors and coaches are an integral part of that. Athletic Director Justin Harris and Coach Ryan Howard, Forsyth Grade 3 teacher, lead the camp. Pictures tell the story.

Fierce competition.

The counselors have as much fun as the kids.

Coach Harris on the defensive.

That's Coach Howard trying to move toward the basket.

Good sportsmanship is important. After the game, teams shake hands.

Tiny Parade


Summer Discovery's youngest campers prepared for Independence Day with all things red, white and blue. They painted T-shirts, made paper plate tambourines, and decorated their floats–that would be the brigade of Fillmore wagons and tricycles. Before the parade, their counselors painted faces and arms. The kids made necklaces and bracelets out of red, white, and blue beads.

On Friday, June 30, all the other camps lined up around the playground to wait for "the tiny parade," as one camper dubbed it, to begin. Tiny because it's the tiniest kids at camp and it lasts only as long as twice around the playground.

Out came the floats. Some campers walked and beat their tambourines. They were all star-spangled with their fourth of July sunglasses.

When the parade was over, you could hear the fireworks. In this case, there was no smoke and no fire. The pre-primary campers hopped off their floats and jumped on bubble wrap–always fun! From across the playground, it sounded just like fireworks. Pop! Pop! Pop!

Happy 4th of July to all!

Top Secret!


Dark glasses, binoculars, secret codes, dodging security lasers, rescuing diamonds.

Secret agents at Spy Science camp had a blast learning the tricks of the trade and what’s behind them. Forsyth science teacher Mrs. Anibal and librarian Mrs. Pillot teamed up for this week of fun.


Campers learned about real spies. They worked on their disguises. Ran surveillance up the street at the Danforth Garden with binoculars and notebooks in hand.

They climbed through laser beams (well, to the untrained eye, the beams looked a bit like crepe paper) to rescue stolen diamonds.

They followed clues on scavenger hunts. Move over 007!
