Camp Francis

The Camp Francis summer program is meant to support the mission of the Catholic Community of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Community Life ministries within our parish community.  We promise to inspire growth opportunities, offer support, encourage participation, and safeguard the environment as we build our summer family.  We enable our community to renew the spirit within, maintain the physical body, and grow the mind as we enjoy the quality recreational, educational and spiritual activities within our exceptional facilities and grounds. We welcome with joy all those young people who come to us and invite them into the life of our summer community.

Pokemon

Instructor: Raleigh Tutoring (http://raleightutoring.com/)
Min/Max Enrollment: 9/20
Price: $195

Gotta catch ‘em all! Campers will exercise their creativity by creating and drawing their own unique Pokémon, complete with abilities and evolutions. They will also design and create their own Pokémon cards and make their Pokémon creations come to life through a comic strip and variety of craft projects. And what would a Pokemon gathering be without an epic “battle” featuring campers’ Pokemons and their special powers, which will be staged outdoors or in the gym! Depending on the weather and logistics, campers might also have an opportunity to play Pokemon

Smash It, Sink, It Crash it

Instructor: Raleigh Tutoring (http://raleightutoring.com/)
Min/Max Enrollment: 9/20
Price: $195

It’s one thing to build something and completely another to dismantle it. In this high-energy camp students will have fun seeing things come apart! Using everyday objects they will create and build rockets, submarines, kites and more. At the end of each day, they test and destroy their creations. Campers leave each day with something they created along with directions on how to replicate the same creation at home using items you find in drawers and cupboards. Breaking stuff is fun but learning how to rebuild it fosters creativity, tenacity and problem solving.

We will also invite local law enforcement officers to our campus to learn about a career as an investigator, analyze fingerprints (may even get fingerprinted, too!) and research former professional spies!

Taking Flight into Aerospace

Instructor: Techsplorers, LLC (http://www.techsplorers.com/)
Min/Max Enrollment: 8/24
Price: $205

Watch as your rockets blast off hundreds of feet into the air! Learn the fundamentals of aerospace and use your newfound knowledge to design, build, and launch your own water bottle and model rockets. However, the real challenge comes when you design and construct your own balsa wood gliders from scratch, just like the engineering students at NC State. By the end of the week, you’ll feel like a real Aerospace Engineer with creations of your very own to take home.

Ultrasonic Maze Solving Robot

Instructor: Techsplorers, LLC (http://www.techsplorers.com/)
Min/Max Enrollment: 8/24
Price: $205

Imagine building an autonomous vehicle that uses sound waves to avoid collisions and find its way out of a maze all by itself! Learn how sound can be used to measure distance, add ultrasonic sensors to the robot, and program it to detect and avoid obstacles in its path. But avoiding obstacles is just the first step — the real challenge is figuring out how to navigate and solve a maze! And with Arduino, unlike the basic drag-and-drop programming taught in LEGO and other robotics camps, students will learn a real programming language used in industry by real engineers. No programming or Arduino experience is necessary. Robot built during class sold separately.

Laptops will be available to borrow during class, however, we highly recommend students bring their own laptop from home with the free Arduino software already installed (see www.techsplorers.com/arduino for setup instructions).
