Keep Boredom At Bay This Summer

2022 Summer Workshops

Keep boredom at bay this summer! Students entering 5th-9th graders – from any school! – are invited to join St. Ambrose Academy for two fun, educational workshops that will keep learners engaged and sharpen skills through hands-on activities, projects, and on-site learning.

Students can register for one week or enjoy a discounted rate when registering for both weeks and double your fun!

Week One

Soil, Farms, and Food

June 27 – July 1, 2022 | 10am – 2pm daily

Get ready to get your hands dirty and become a scientist, farmer, chef, and taster for a week! In this workshop, we will approach these themes from all sorts of angles. We’ll do a series of hands-on activities that include:

  • Getting to know the soil in your backyard
  • Discovering the critters in soil and what they do
  • Growing microbes to help us bake bread
  • Going on a grocery store scavenger hunt
  • Tracing the path from soil to ice cream
  • Visiting a farm and becoming farmers for a day
  • Learning how plants and our bodies store energy
  • What soil and food teach us about God’s Plan for us
  • Tasting the seven sides of a strawberry
  • Performing a cool experiment with soil and underwear!

Week Two

Lights, Camera …Action!

August 1 – 5, 2022 | 10am – 2pm daily

St Ambrose Academy has partnered with Backflip and is proud to present our Summer Academic Skill Workshop Lights, Camera …Action!

In this workshop, students will tap their creativity to make a video in a format of documentary, motion graphics, or live action. The teachers will walk them through the stages of film production. We’ll explore how movies are made, what digital technology is based upon and how it works, and we’ll get to view some cool video to see how the pros do it.
