Summer Camps

Peabody Summer Camp

Peabody Summer Camp is a two-week long adventure!  Each day brings on new fun, excitement, challenge and exploration!  Whether going on safari at the Richmond Zoo, working as a team at Laser Tag, swimming at Lake Sherando and Fry’s Spring Beach Club, or exploring the mystery of the Endless Caverns, Peabody summer camp is a great way for our children to cooperate with campers of different ages, explore their own interests, take new healthy risks, and start their summers off with two weeks of fun!

Raspberry Pi Camp

A Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer that can be used in electronics projects and for many of the things that your desktop PC or Mac does – like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It is a fantastic tool for learning how to code and create functioning circuits!  Your camper will receive:

  • One Raspberry Pi 3 Canakit ($90 value)
  • A camp binder detailing the basics of Linux, Python coding language, and how to use a breadboard to create simple circuits.
  • Step by step instructions for 3 separate projects:
    • Controlling input/ouput with LEDs
    • Creating automated messages
    • Creating a laser tripwire alarm
    • Plus resources and direction for starting a personal project

Stay tuned for more information for Summer 2018!!
