Intersession and Teacher Workday Camps

These camps are designed for students’ ages 5 to 13 years and offer flexible daily or
weekly schedule to accommodate year-round and traditional school breaks. Students
are divided into age appropriate groups and participate in both visual and performing
arts activities that are inspired by a theme. Camp runs from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Drop-off begins at 8:00 AM. For a full day program, add the Afternoon Adventures
program, which runs from 3:00 – 5:30 PM. Students ages 14 and older are eligible
to volunteer. Call 919-560-2726 for more information. *DAC provides a fresh fruit
snack, but campers must bring their own lunch.

Art and Astronomy
You may not think that Art and Astronomy are as synonymous as Peanut Butter and Jelly, but people have been relying on the stars, planets and what they tell us for centuries. Something that important to civilization has made its way into art of all forms, from cave paintings to renaissance masterpieces. During this camp we will explore stars, planets, black holes and the endless landscape of outer space using art as a tool to discover and conceptualize.
9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, drop-off begins at 8:00 AM
September 24 – October 12
October 29, November 12, November 21

Weekly Price $180 ($170 per additional sibling or same household)

The Alps
Stretching from France — through Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria and into Slovenia — the Alps are a small section of a great mountain chain that runs from North Africa through Europe and Asia. The Alps cover over 80,000 square miles and contain peaks towering over 15,000 feet (that’s the same as stacking up 43 of Durham’s tallest buildings!) The ecology of the Alps is extremely diverse because of the dramatic altitude and temperature changes, with a variety of animals and plant life, and the area has been inhabited by humans since the Paleolithic times — making it rich in cultural history.
9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, drop-off begins at 8:00 AM

January 2 – 4, January 22
