Apprentice Counselor Program at Colorado Academy Summer Programs
The CA Summer Day Camp offers a two week Apprentice Counselor Program for young people (ages 13-15) who wish to gain valuable experience working with and caring for children as a counselor in training. Under the guidance of a leadership coach, the Apprentice counselors assist regular counselors in the management and care of campers. They explore different styles of leadership and learn the importance of being a good role model. In the process they learn the skills and responsibilities of working with children. They are expected to participate actively in all Day Camp activities and serve as a positive role model for campers. The Apprentice Counselors also provide assistance to the Assistant Director for Programs in setting up the various special Friday activities.
Session 1: June 8-June 19
Session 2: June 22-July 2
Session 3: July 6-July 17
Session 4: July 20-July 31

Featured Camp of the Day: Mediterranean Dance
Learn the basics of two forms of Mediterranean dances: Flamenco dance, and belly dance. Regardless of your level of experience, if you like dance, you will LOVE these dances! Have fun stomping and shimmying while learning rhythm, grace, muscle isolations, posture, and expression. We work with both choreographies and improvisation, and we get to try out some props like castanets, fans, finger cymbals, and veils. Long before hip hop, gypsies were "popping and locking" across the Middle East and into Spain; so come and get your groove on, gypsy 51style! Entering grades 2-8. July 20-24.

They can build their own Magic Pens, Etch-a-Sketches, and Color-Splattering Machines, and they can create new projects of their own. Kids design their interactive art projects in Scratch, a free MIT-developed computer programming language for children. They learn to use Scratch from any computer in the world, publish their artwork to the web, and set up a Scratch website to share their projects with parents, siblings, and friends. The camp is social, playful, artistic, and fun. It is ideal for kids who love to create, build, and share. No prior computer programming experience is needed.
