BB8 Adventures takes STEM to a galaxy far, far away. This program combines all of the highlights from the latest Star Wars movies, specifically the newest droid, D-0, and the rest of the popular bots! Each day, teams of campers (Squads) work together, with encouragement and guidance from their Jedi counselors, to customize droid-like robots and complete various Yoda engineering challenges. Throughout the week, campers will dunk intergalactic basketballs into mini hoops, play BB8 battleship, and joust in the balloon-popping droid arena. Each challenge presents the campers with hands-on building and engineering lessons to help make their bots jump up ramps, roll through tunnels, and bounce over barriers. BB8 Adventures offers a friendly and collaborative environment, encouraging teamwork, sportsmanship, and positivity – all while introducing campers to become active participants with today’s most applicable, exciting, and new technology.
"Great work! Our kids are always so excited to go back to camp at WES. As with the school experience, WES is a special and welcoming place. In fact, we canceled a week at another camp because our kids wanted to go to WES camp instead."
"The facilities are great and the camp counselors are wonderful with each and every camper. When I drop of my son, I know that he is going to have a great time."
"We can't wait to sign-up! Before last year's camp ended, my children were asking to do it again this summer."
"It is exactly what a camp should be: FUN!"
"My kids loved Summer@WES. Each morning they get up enthusiastically and are excited to be with the other campers and counselors. It is the best camp they have attended."
"I used to sign up for multiple camps because I thought my child would appreciate new settings, but now I sign up for multiple sessions at Summer@WES. All the campers and camp staff are extremely welcoming, and my child always felt relaxed and excited for camp."
"It is awesome!"
"Summer@WES needs to market itself more. The camp is just too good to be kept a secret!"
"I wish school could be this cool!"
"My child had a terrible experience at another camp, primarily due to poor inattentive aftercare, which was in contrast to the attentive aftercare provided by WES. In addition, my child loved the themed weeks in the Dragon Day Camp and learned a tremendous amount in each of the sessions."
"My twins really enjoy dragon quest camp. They like the fact that they got to chose what they wanted to do every day."
