Summer Camps 2017



Lawton Academy Summer Camps 2017
Lawton Academy of Arts & Sciences Summer Camps 2017

Lawton Academy of Arts & Sciences (LAAS)  is offering six (6) week-long summer camp opportunities this summer and one half-week camp.  Attendees must have an active contract with LAAS for the 2017-18 academic year.  LAAS students entering PK3 through students entering 6th grade are welcome.  Cost is $125 per camp.  The following discounts apply:

3 camps in one month = $350 (a savings of $25)

4 camps in one month = $440 (a savings of $60)

These discounts can be used for each month separately.

Kids may attend one camp, any combination of camps, or all of the camps!  Registration for camps is due by Thursday, May 18 (the last day of our school).  Registration forms will be sent home in Monday folders on Monday, March 20, but there are extras in the elementary office if that one is misplaced.  Tuition for each camp is due no later than the first day of the camp.  Camp hours are 8:30 – 3:00.  Extended care is available from 7:00 – 8:30 and from 3:00 – 5:30 for $25 per week ($75 for the month… another savings for those coming to all camps!).

Students currently attending LAAS with a returning contract for the 2017-18 school year can enroll in the summer camps at school.  If your child does not attend LAAS currently, but has a contract in place for the 2017-18 school year, you may enroll your child in camps by contacting Michelle Smith (

BOTCamp: June 5-9

BOTCamp is our annual robotics camp.  Designed to train our future BEST Robotics team members, BOTCamp offers kids a chance to explore the exciting world of robotics.  Our BEST team is divided into two departments:  engineering and marketing.  Camp attendees will not only work with robots, but they will learn to design on CAD (computer assisted drawing) and explore  programming.

Attendees typically range in age from 4 – 10, and we have activities suited to the youngest and the eldest of that range.  It’s never too early to begin learning about robots!

Now We're Cooking: June 12 - 16

Kids love to cook… and they love to eat what they’ve cooked even more! Camp attendees will do more than cook, though. They will learn kitchen safety and nutrition information. But mostly we’ll cook, Kids!


Music to my Ears: June 19-23

Students at this camp will get a chance to try various instruments.  They will also be learning some basic music theory and getting some singing instruction.  We have many talented musicians in the school and many competitions for musicians in the secondary.  This is a chance for elementary kids to get some early prep for what lies ahead. New this year: we will visit with Mrs. Jump’s husband who plays with the 77th Army Band.

Cre8: June 26-30

CRE8 is art camp at its best.  Attendees will explore many different art mediums and even make pieces they can enter in next year’s LAAS Arts Festival.

SPEAK!: July 5 - 7

All secondary students at LAAS must participate in speech as a core subject.  The only true way to affect change is through what we write and what we say.  SPEAK!  is a speech camp designed to get elementary kids on the road to becoming excellent public speakers… or at least brave enough to speak their minds.  Camp attendees will learn basic lessons in projection, diction, intonation, and enunciation when memorizing and delivering grade-appropriate speech pieces in prose, poetry, humorous  and dramatic duets, and standard oratory.  We will even dabble in some extemporaneous speaking on subjects with which the kids will all be familiar!  Sprinkled throughout the week will be plenty of opportunities for laughs and giggles as we play improv games designed to make us think on our feet. This is a short camp, but we will do an awful lot!


Lights! Camera! Action!: July 10-14

Secondary LAAS students can become a part of the Lawton Academy Broadcast Team, producing a weekly news broadcast for the entire school.  Elementary students can start training for these positions now, though!  Camp attendees will learn to write stories, film and edit video, use the green screen, operate the sound board, and anchor a live broadcast.  Teams will produce two broadcasts that will actually air the first two weeks of school!


E.T.C.: July 17-21

Engineering Training Camp (E.T.C.)  is one of our most popular camps each summer.  Attendees explore  all sorts of engineering skills:  designing, building, evaluating, redesigning.    Attendees should come ready to “try, try again” because the best ideas come after the first ideas are done!
