Clubs

Afternoon at The Clubhouse Camp is Club Time!  Pick your favorites-two each week-and explore new or old interests together with new or old friends.  Clubs are directed by our staff of super-talented Counselors.

BEADING

BEADazzling Jewelry!  Create the most beautiful beaded jewelry– necklaces, bracelets, earrings, anklets, dangles– for you, for your friends and family– or start a jewelry business!  Learn (easy) techniques of crimping, stringing, finishing, and looping wire.  Tools provided, small materials fee.

MAGIC

Do you like to make people squeal with amazement?  This club will explore some simple but very effective card and coin magic as well as basic mentalism techniques.  Most importantly, you will learn how to really sell a trick and make it fun for the performer and the audience. You can also bring your own magic tricks to share with the group!

BRAIN STRETCHERS

There are 3 apples on a table and you take away 2, how many do you have?  Tease your brain with the most fun and challenging math and word puzzles and improve your thinking skills.  Great preparation for standardized tests like the SAT!

JUGBAND

Enter the weird and wacky side of music making.  You will learn how to make music with a saw, a Jew’s harp,a limber jack. a nose flute,  a sheepdog whistle, a stumph fiddle, a Cajun triangle, a washboard, a washtub bass and, of course, the kazoo!  All are traditional instruments that have been featured on major recordings from folk to rock music and can be played by anyone with just a little bit of practice.

COOKING CLUBS

I. CUPCAKES, COOKIES AND CRISPIES–OH MY!

Chocolate, Vanilla, Red Velvet– who cares? It’s all about the frosting! We’ll make buttercream frosted cupcakes and and pile it high with candy!  Then we’ll have a cookie contest: chocolate chip versus oatmeal raisin– and finish the week off with seriously gourmet Rice Krispies Treats.
Will we share with the rest of the camp? Maaaaaaaaybeeeeeee….

II. BREAKFAST ALL WEEK!

Start your griddles: buckwheat pancakes with bananas and plantains, next day make-your-own-granola, then exotic fruit salad, then chocolate chip muffins, then veggie omelettes with home fries– is breakfast the best meal of the day or what?

III. SNACKS A-GO-GO!

Who isn’t in the mood for a nosh?  Let’s do yogurt parfaits, crazy-combo smoothies, veggies with our own hummus, chocolate brownies with vanilla chips,  and finally–domo arrigato– sushi with all the fixins!  A snack a day keeps the munchies away!

Future Stephen Kings and Stephanie Meyer’s and J K Rowlings and Maya Angelous will find their creativity juiced and sparks lit under their you-know- whats.  A haven and heaven for developing writers!!

PHOTOGRAPHY

What makes a picture worth a thousand words? It’s more than the proper lighting, a cute subject or a beautiful horizon. It’s—it’s –it’s—well you know it when you see it.  With the entire city as a model or just the kid sitting next to you, a great photo can make every single friend on Facebook go “LIKE!”  Bring your digital cameras and your craziest ideas—we will turn The Clubhouse Camp into the coolest gallery ever.
