Carrollton’s Summer Programs provide your child with a high quality, safe and fun learning environment. Our summer programs provide all campers with an exciting and enriching summer experience under the supervision of a well-trained and experienced staff. We create a unique environment where children have an opportunity to learn from new experiences, to grow, to make new friends, and to develop important social skills that will last a lifetime. Children have an opportunity to participate in the following camp experiences:

Basketball by Allison Bustamante (Grades 4-8)
Held in our state of the art Wellness Center, the basketball program provides high-level instruction from experienced coaches to help athletes elevate their game and focus on specific skill development in a competitive and fun environment.

Coding by MT Valle of Carrollton Engineering Department(Grades 2-7)
Students will use JavaScript language and 3D modeling software to bring their designs to life. Why learn JavaScript? Because JavaScript is a web standard for in-webpage apps per the HTML5 standard. Learning JavaScript also helps students with their math skills and improve their punctuation because all designs require that students learn written commands with proper punctuation. They also start to learn about pixels and web design. In our 3D art portion of the class, students learn to create art using 3 dimensions. They start by doing a simple fidget spinner and move to more advanced objects of art. Students will have an opportunity to see their work being printed in our MakerSpace.

Debate Camp by Carrollton Debate Teachers (Grades 7-9)
The Carrollton Cyclone Debate Camp will provide young women entering their 7th, 8th, or 9th-grade year the opportunity to complete a one-week seminar with Carrollton’s Director of Debate Dana Randall and Assistant Debate Coach David Heidt. The seminar will focus on providing a primer for students interested in cross-examination style debate. The seminar will also introduce students to the 2018-2019 national policy debate topic, which discusses United States federal government’s immigration policy.


Maker Camp by Carrollton Engineering Department (Grades 5-9)
Campers will develop their own designs to be integrated into both group and individual projects. Participants will have access to various technologies and will create a base project that they can share with their peers while taking advantage of opportunities to further their interests. No previous experience is necessary — the development of a growth mindset coupled with new abilities is guaranteed.

Mindful Living by Carrollton Faculty (Grades 5-8)
Students will ponder upon the importance of the choices they make as they begin to develop lifelong habits. The goal of the course is to have them start thinking from early on of the right choices they can make. The course will incorporate the preparation of some healthy snacks and exercise as well! Campers will take part in yoga exercise and cooking classes.
 
Theater Camp by Red Carpet Kids (Grades 2-9) 
This two-week holistic performing arts camp will be taught by working professional Actors and Producers from New York City as well as seasoned teaching artists. The program will be an excellent introduction to the dramatic arts for both outgoing performers as well as kids, who are looking to build self-confidence. This camp will allow kids to work one-on-one with Broadway Producers and Actors choreography, exciting scene work, and more! Over the course of 1 week, the campers will create an ensemble Cabaret Show straight from the Best of New York’s Broadway Theaters to the Budding Miami Stage.

Volleyball by Carrollton Athletics (Grades 4-8)
Held in our state of the art Wellness Center, our volleyball program provides high-level instruction from experienced coaches to help athletes elevate their game and focus on specific skill development in a competitive and fun environment.

Summer Scholars (Grade 6-12)
The goal of Carrollton Summer Scholars is to offer an educational summer program that provides an exciting opportunity for students to explore their academic passions. Students can select from a wide array of courses in the sciences, arts, humanities, or the social sciences.

Summer Academic Preparation

Summer is a wonderful time for students to play, pray, rest, read and spend time with families; to provide some ‘down’ time. We are certain that your summer plans will include enriching learning activities for your daughters. In order to keep their reading skills sharp over the upcoming months, we will be requiring summer reading activities.  In August, the teachers will collect and review the work completed over the summer. We know that this reinforcement will continue to help them grow as learners. We are looking forward to seeing your family in August.
