MAJOR PROGRAM AREAS

3D Printing: Bridges and Experiments

Campers will design, print and assemble components of a bridge that they will try and test the strength by adding weight to see how much their design can hold. Bridge building has been a pretty common topic used in school science and physics lessons over the years, it is a fun way to explore force and weight distribution, even math and material strength.

Engineering: Bridges & Experiments

Campers will learn about the types of possible loads, how to calculate ultimate load combinations, and investigate the different sizes for the beams (girders) and columns (piers) of simple bridge design. Additionally, they learn the steps that engineers use to design bridges.

Robotics: Vex Robotics

The objective of this course is to introduce campers to the field through the Vex Robotics system and stimulate their interests in science and engineering through the participation of the entire engineering design process. This course covers a variety of multidisciplinary topics necessary to understand the fundamentals of designing, building, and programming robots.

Movie-Making Workshop

Filmmaking is more than just picking up a camera or phone and shooting video. The true art of filmmaking is about understanding the process of telling a story through a visual form. This class is a step-by-step course to help introduce the art of filmmaking and movie creation. Campers will learn steps on creating fun characters, developing a cool story and how to properly film and edit their video.

Model Rocketry: Blast-Off!

3..2..1..Blast Off! In the introductory class we will look at basic rocket design and understand the forces at play that dictate how well rockets perform, then we will test this knowledge by making a few different types of rockets and launching them.

Stop Motion Animation

Explore the world of stop motion in this interactive class. Campers will learn how to create and edit at their own pace using Stop Motion Studio Software. Campers will craft their animation with various materials ranging from play-doh to legos.

Video Game Design

This class will teach Campers to create the defining features of video games, including characters, objectives, obstacles, levels and settings, and narratives. During your video game design training, you will learn programming languages, mathematics skills, game asset creation, modern real-time game engines, and general game development techniques.

Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship involves selling ideas and products. To help kids develop these skills, teach them about marketing and sales. Encourage them to develop a pitch for their product or idea and teach them how to sell it effectively. You can also teach them about branding, advertising, and customer service.

Magic Graphic Design

Campers will learn the fundamentals of Graphic Design process culminating in creating their own Graphic Novel. 

We use the CampSite Platform for all NHSC Enrollments. You may use the link below to view the specific weekly activity offerings and complete your registration.

The early pick-up procedure is quite simple. Early pick-ups must be no later than 2:30 pm.  Please have a note ready to give to the person who greets you in the lot when you drop your child off in the morning. You may also send an email or call the main camp line. If you are authorizing someone to pick up your child, please provide the name of that person in your note. Please also tell the person to bring identification with them. We will have your child waiting in the office at the desired time. Your child must be met and signed out at the security desk in front of the camp entrance. Safety, as always, is our main concern.

What if my child won't be coming to camp or will be coming in late?

If your child will not be in camp, we appreciate a call to the office or an email to let us know. In either case, if your child is coming to camp late, please park in the main parking lot and come to the camp office to sign in. Your child will be brought to his or her scheduled activity from the office.

If I choose New Horizons, have I made a good choice?

ABSOLUTELY! You and your child will love it! We have many returning campers and very satisfied parents who can provide references.  Let us know if you’d like to speak with some of our New Horizons Day Camp families.
