    Kate Tempesta’s Urban Golf Academy Summer Camp Program @ Saint David’s

    Join Kate Tempesta's Urban Golf Academy (KTUGA) at Saint David’s this summer for four weeks of playing and learning golf and so much more!   We have been bringing golf to urban environments for over ten years and have developed curriculum and extended programming that captures and engages newcomers to the sport. 

    For this special 6-hour camp program at Saint David's, our mascot Birdie and her friends will be the headliners. Each week will focus on a different theme and campers will practice the fundamentals of golf.  Look forward to hearing about our Birdie-isms which are powerful yet simple metaphors that convey complex golf concepts like grip, aim, stance and posture. 

    We use a combination of child-friendly, modified equipment and traditional equipment, and create various stations that act as the golf course. We work on parallel skills that promote physical literacy needed in any sport, but also ensure that each child is actively engaged and having fun. 

    This will take place Monday-Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm and Friday 9:00am-12:00pm from June 17-July 12, 2019.

    We will be closed on July 4 and July 5.

    Grades K to 6

    Lego Robotics (depending on enrollment and age, older boys will be taking this class):

    We've seen them in movies, read about them in books, incorporated them in industry, and now even find them as toys! Robots are quickly becoming a huge part of everyday life and we need to now learn how to work with, or create, these machines. So why not have our boys learn too? These junior robotics courses will teach children valuable concepts in engineering and physics, allow them to experiment with their ideas, expose them to the process of designing a product to complete a specific job, and show them that many times there is more than one correct solution to the same problem!

    While working in design teams, the students will take the roles of different engineers and will need to build and program their robot to conquer the challenge given!  What happens when your boys take a LEGO ® - based robotics class designed by a robotic controls engineer with a background in aerospace and physics? Enroll and find out!

    Kodu (depending on enrollment and age, younger boys will be taking this class):

    One of the best ways to get a child excited is to allow them to create something of their own. In this class, we enable young boys to make their own 3D video games by using fundamental coding concepts. Boys bring their imaginations to life with Kodu - a visual programming language that helps your child develop critical skills of storytelling, creativity, and problem solving. A great introduction to coding.

    Please note we will be closed July 4 and July 5.

    The class will meet Monday-Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm and Friday 9:00am-12:00pm from June 17-July 12, 2019.  Please note we will be closed July 4 and July 5.

    Grades 1 to 3

    Information Coming soon.

    Grades 1 to 4

    This two-day off-site camp will take place from June 18th-19th.  The boys will meet at 9am and get bussed to the garden and return to school by 3pm (10am-1pm: 10-noon work, noon to 1pm lunch at the Garden of Happiness).

    June 17th, 20th and 21st will comprise of in-house (at 89th street) activities.

    The boys will be bussed to the farm in the Bronx (2144F Prospect Ave) with Saint David's chaperones and be bussed back to 89th Street.

    More detailed information to come.

    Grades 1 to 6

    The Dig Farm is a 15 acre, organic vegetable farm that grows more than 100 different varieties of produce in Chester, NY. Part of the Dig Inn restaurant group, the Dig Farm is primarily education focused and serves as a living lab for our chefs and model of sustainability. Throughout the season, boys will visit the farm and learn about how food is grown, the amount of work that it takes to produce it, and ultimately take part in the harvest and growing itself. We believe that once people understand the journey that a vegetable takes before it gets to the table, they will gain a level of respect and awe that will translate into cooking that reflects more care and soul than ever before. Throughout the year, the Dig Farm also trains a crew of 7 new farmers to bring more young people into an aging industry and inspire the next generation of land stewards, so we'd like to start this summer!

    The boys will be bussed to the farm (8 Greycourt Ave, Chester NY 10918) with Saint David's chaperones and be bussed back to 89th Street.

    The class will meet Monday-Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm and Friday 9:00am-12:00pm from June 17-June 21, 2019.  

    NY Theater Summer Experience
    For the boy who loves to perform, or appreciates the theater.  A one week immersive theater experience where boys will be introduced to the craft of acting and performance and be exposed to the many elements of the creative process to make a show.
    From improvisation, and character building to the study of voice and movement, boys will put on their performance shoes to create a character and study scenes.  In addition, they will learn how to analyze a scene, breaking down beats to character wants, circumstance and obstacles in learning how to write an original monologue or script.  Finally, boys will be introduced to the art of scenic design, and direction.  Professional teaching artists will lead the program with specialty guests from the Broadway stage.  Boys will also attend the matinee of a Broadway show and have a post-show discussion with creatives.
     

    Information Coming soon.

    In partnership with The DNA Learning Center of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Saint David’s is offering a one-week summer camp at Saint David’s School for students currently in Grades Five and Six. 

    The DNA Learning Center (DNALC) of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is the world’s first science center devoted entirely to genetics education. The DNALC “invented” DNA camps in 1985, and since then over 11,000 students have participated. Guided by experienced instructors, students will use sophisticated laboratory equipment to perform experiments several grade levels ahead of their peers.

    Participants in the Forensic Detectives camp will use techniques employed by real CSI experts to analyze a “crime scene.” Students will collect and analyze evidence such as fibers, fingerprints, hair, and blood. They will use DNA fingerprinting techniques to compare real DNA found at the scene with samples of DNA from persons of interest. Boys will explore specific fields of forensic science including pathology, fire science, and forensic psychology through engaging investigations and activities.

    This camp is designed especially for highly motivated students interested in forensics. Participants are immersed in an environment of hands-on activities and laboratory experiments designed to encourage critical and creative thinking and spark interest in the fields of forensics and biotechnology. The week concludes with Parent Participation Day, when students become teachers and explain the week’s activities to visiting parents and family members.  

    Please feel free to contact Irene Byun (ibyun@saintdavids.org) if you have any questions about the program.

    Enrollment in the camp is limited to 16.   The class will take place at Saint David’s School.

    In partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, Saint David’s School is offering a one-week summer camp at the New-York Historical Society for students currently in Grades Five and Six. 

    Participants in this camp will explore the life of World War II soldiers through original artifacts. Acting like historians, participants will read original soldiers letters, learn about various artifacts from the war, and determine how these letters and objects tell a story. The boys will build an online exhibition exploring one aspect of the life of a soldier and present their findings on the morning of the last day of camp.

    Throughout the process, boys will work with the Chief Curator of the Gilder Lehrman Collection and a Saint David’s teacher to grapple with questions historians ask: What is the daily experience of a soldier? How does the primary source affect your understanding? Why do documents matter?

    The Gilder Lehrman Collection is a unique archive of primary sources in American History. Owned by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and located at the New-York Historical Society, the Collection includes more than 70,000 letters, diaries, maps, pamphlets, printed books, newspapers, photographs, and ephemera that document the political, social, and economic history of the United States. 

    Please feel free to contact Irene Byun (ibyun@saintdavids.org) if you have any questions about the program.

    Enrollment in the camp is limited to 12. 

    Camp Schedule:

    Monday – Thursday (June 24 – June 27) – 9:00am-2:30pm
