Help us transform St. Sophia’s into “Hogwarts”! Campers will be sorted into one of six original “houses”: Embredor, Firesong, Ironclaw, Lindenleaf, Wipplyn, or Wolfwind, and will compete each week for the House and Quidditch Cups.

Daily schedule will include themed activities, or “classes”, such as Transfiguration, Herbology, Astronomy, and Defense Against the Dark Arts. Quidditch games round out the day.

Each week will focus on a specific Harry Potter book, inspiring unique challenges and activities.

Week 1 – Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone

Week 2 – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Week 3 – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Week 4 – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Join us for the legendary Triwizard Tournament! In addition to regular activities, including the resurrection of Lord Voldemort, campers may choose to participate in the tournament, testing both their athleticism and use of cool logic.

Week 5 – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Week 6 – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Week 7 – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Horcruxes or Deathly Hallows? The week is lush with book-specific challenges in addition to regular activities, as campers must collect horcruxes and hallows before entering the final battle against Lord Voldemort.

Week 8 – Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Inspired by the recently published scripts, this week will reprise popular challenges from the previous weeks with a fantastic twist!

Prior knowledge of the Harry Potter books, scripts, and movies will prove advantageous for campers. Limited to 75 campers per week.
