Why Magellan Summer Camp Is Great For Kids!

Summer will be here soon, and so will our MIS Exploring the World Summer Camp! Please note that the new location for all grades will be at our Chimney Corners Campus. With many Partner Camps taking place at the other campus ( Anderson Lane), the move will give our campers more space for activities, special workshops, and play. There’s still time to register your rising PP3 – 5th grader for our Magellan signature camp ” Exploring the World Summer Camp”!


Magellan provides a unique summer camp experience that explores international culture through a wide range of innovative programs. Each week we take campers on a new and exciting adventure to a far off place. We focus all of our activities around a particular country. We explore these cultures through dance, arts, technology, and special guests – including Danzversity, Mad Science and Sugar Fashionista – all while keeping with The Magellan International School’s Spanish Immersion philosophy.  Throughout the week, campers also take part in specialty classes and outdoor education, as well as field trips. No prior Spanish proficiency is required.

So why should you send your child to camp at Magellan?

Camp is action!
Spend their day being physically active – As children spend so much time these days inside and mostly sitting down, camp provides a wonderful opportunity to move. Running, swimming, jumping, hiking, climbing!

Camp teaches kids that they can.
Experience success and become more confident – Camp helps children build self-confidence and self-esteem by removing the kind of academic, athletic and social competition that shapes their lives at school. With its non-competitive activities and diverse opportunities to succeed, camp life is a real boost for young people. There’s accomplishment every day.

Camp helps conquer fears.
Gain resiliency – The kind of encouragement and nurture kids receive at camp makes it a great environment to endure setbacks, try new (and thereby maybe a little frightening) things, and see that improvement comes when you give something another try.

Camp is real!
Unplug from technology – When kids take a break from TV, cell phones, and the Internet, they rediscover their creative powers and engage the real world— real people, real activities, and real emotions. They realize, there’s always plenty to do.

Camp expands every child’s abilities.
Develop lifelong skills – Camps provide the right instruction, equipment and facilities for kids to enhance their sports abilities, their artistic talents, and their adventure skills. The sheer variety of activities offered at camp makes it easy for kids to discover and develop what they like to do.

Camp helps kids develop who they are.
Grow more independent – Camp is the perfect place for kids to practice making decisions for themselves without parents and teachers guiding every move. Managing their daily choices in the safe, caring environment of camp, children welcome this as a freedom to blossom in new directions.

At camp we play!
Have free time for unstructured play – Free from the overly-structured, overly-scheduled routines of home and school, life at camp gives children much needed free time to just play. Camp is a slice of carefree living where kids can relax, laugh, and be silly all day long.

Camp builds teamwork.
Learn social skills – Coming to camp means joining a close-knit community where everyone must agree to cooperate and respect each other. When they live in a cabin with others, kids share chores, resolve disagreements, and see firsthand the importance of sincere communication.

Camp gets kids back outside.
Reconnect with nature – Camp is a wonderful antidote to “nature deficit disorder,” to the narrow experience of modern indoor life. Outdoor experience enriches kid’s perception of the world and supports healthy child development.

Everyday, camp creates friendships.
Make true friends – Camp is the place where kids make their very best friends. Free from the social expectations pressuring them at school, camp encourages kids to relax and make friends easily. All the fun at camp draws everyone together— singing, laughing, talking, playing, doing almost everything together.

Please register by March 30th to ensure your child has a spot. Registrations after March 30th will be subject to space availability.
