Elementary & Leadership Summer Camp
School in the Hills presents “Brainstorm Alliance”, a summer camp aimed at eager young minds. Spend your days working on exciting new challenges built on the principles of team work and cooperation. This summer, we bring the important message of the relevance of community in our lives and in the classroom, with a variety of innovative programs and activities. Come live the life of an artist, restaurateur, an actor and an athlete while learning to grow those connections to the local and global community. Let’s grow those brains! And build great memories!

Calling all chefs! Join us on a culinary adventure as we empower the children to expand their minds and enhance their taste buds. Through a unique blend of environmental education and hands on learning, children will focus on local and sustainable foods and giving back to the community. They will visit a local farm and a food bank to understand the valuable lesson of being part of a community. During the final week of the session, they will measure, stir and whisk as their efforts culminate in a bake sale, the proceeds of which will be donated to a charity of their choice.
