Camp Seven Hills has gone digital!

We are thrilled to offer a wide variety of exciting online summer classes for middle school boys in rising grades 4-9. Spend your summer learning a new language, designing your own comic book, or going on a virtual adventure!

All virtual camps run for one hour a day for at least one week. Some camps have the option of adding on one or two additional weeks to further explore the topic. Each five-hour week-long session costs $35. Enroll in multiple courses to design your own custom summer camp experience!

Basic Drawing taught by Mr. Franzak

July 6-10, 9-10 AM

July 13-17, 9-10 AM

*one or two weeks

Students will work on drawing basic shapes, giving them depth, and drawing in perspective, before learning to combine basic shapes into figures and three dimensional objects. The class will definitely skew toward comic book style illustration, but students will have a lot of autonomy to explore drawing whatever they would like, in whatever style they would like.

 

Game Show Time taught by Mr. Ours

July 6-10, 9-10 AM

Students will look at the progression of game shows from the early years of television to the modern, big-money events of today. We will compare formats across games of chance, trivia, and physical challenges, and look at some examples of games translated between the United States and the UK.

 

Riddles and Puzzles taught by Ms. Plank

July 6-10, 10:30-11:30 AM

Train your brain by exploring the world of riddles and puzzles! From river crossings to the mastermind, we’ll take a look at some of the most interesting and tricky brainteasers around. Each class, students will participate in a “Puzzle Royale” challenge in which they compete against their classmates and the teacher to see who can crack the most puzzles.

 

Animation with Pixels and Sprites taught by Mr. O’Keefe

July 6-10, 12:30-1:30 PM

In this camp, students will learn how to create animation using sprites, in the style of 8-bit and 16-bit retro video games. Get ready for layered backgrounds, frame rates, key frames and loops as we imagine our own video game characters!

 

Dungeons and Dragons for Beginners taught by Mr. O’Keefe

July 6-10, 2-3 PM

Prepare for a rousing adventure filled with sword and sorcery as students learn how to create characters and embark upon a perilous journey using just pencil, paper, dice, and their imaginations. Students will learn the classic “D&D” system and collaborate on a short adventure!

 

Quiz Bowl Crash Course taught by Mr. Ours

July 13-17, 9-10 AM

Students interested in playing quiz bowl in either middle or high school can come here for a run-down of some of the most commonly asked answerlines in all of the major categories of a typical topic distribution. Each session, we will read some questions in a category, research things that come up often in that category, and play a quick scrimmage.

 

Introduction to Japanese taught by Ms. Plank

July 13-17, 10:30-11:30 AM

Start or continue your study of Japanese with this one-week Japanese camp. Students will learn hiragana, numbers, and how to construct basic sentences. We’ll also take time to watch clips from anime and other Japanese sources, and learn about self-study resources to continue studying beyond this camp. New or continuing students welcome.
