JMU4KIDS HARRY POTTER CAMP
Help us transform Mater Christi into ‘Hogwarts’! Campers will be randomly Sorted into one of our original ‘houses’ and will compete as a team each week for the House and Quidditch Cups.
The original ‘houses’ we feature are on rotation and we randomly employ four or six ‘houses’ each week.In the past, our original ‘houses’ have included Embredor, Firesong, Ironclaw, Lindenleaf, Wipplyn, and Wolfwind. As the Harry Potter Universe has recently expanded to include The Cursed Child play and the new Fantastic Beasts movies, our camp expands as well.
As such, we will feature two brand new and original Harry Potter Camp ‘houses’ in our rotation this year: Dragontail and Equisyn.
Our daily schedule will include themed activities, or ‘classes’, such as Transfiguration, Herbology, Astronomy, and Defense Against the Dark Arts. Each week also features at least two ‘challenges’, or team-work exercises loosely based on the storyline of the book/movie of focus.
The Wizarding game of Quidditch is a major feature of our camp and campers are taught how to play it each week. Quidditch games, in addition to our ‘classes’ and ‘challenges’ round out the day.
Each week will focus on a specific Harry Potter book or movie, inspiring unique activities:
Week 1 – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Week 2 – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets AND Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Week 3 – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Week 4 – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix AND Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Week 5 – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Week 6 – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Week 7 – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
**Prior knowledge of the Harry Potter books, scripts, and movies will prove advantageous for campers. Limited to 75 campers per week.
