TEXTILE DESIGN

“Textile Design” offers a dynamic and creative process in which students will be able to learn different skills and develop knowledge about sewing and textile design. This process embraces an individual and collective thinking process where students plan, create and construct their own textile works, and in the process interact with others. Students will learn how to design patterns, dye cloth, stamp, sow, and transform their work into something unique and wearable.

ECO-COSMETIC WORKSHOP

Nature every day offers wonderful gifts, flowers, fruits and plants with exquisite aromas and various properties that can contribute to our well-being. In this Workshop we wanted to combine the love and the taste that the children feel when being in contact with Nature with the interest that awakens in them to make with their own hands some cosmetic elements of daily use, with plants that, they will discover can find, even inside from school.

OUTDOORS RECREATIONAL PROGRAM

Students will take advantage of our campus to learn about outdoor skills and enjoy learning in nature. This program will include trekking within the protected territory that belongs to Nido, where students will exercise, enjoy the outdoors and learn about survival skills that are useful when in nature/in the wild.

FENCING

Fencing develop skills such as strength, speed, balance and very sharp mind, a good strategy is perhaps the most important part of the sport, but fair play and sportsmanship is also required. The methodology is part of the European system of education, where the student will receive individual lessons and group lessons, properly programmed into sports planning and schedule of each fencer. (Course with limited space).

DIGITAL ART

If you have had some experience in coding with a block based programming environment like Scratch, Digital Art is a logical step forward. Students will be introduced to a coding editor that was created to make programming more accessible to art and design students. The course will introduce the key ideas necessary to create digital art: pixels, colors and geometric shapes. Students will learn how to make patterns that take advantage of the computer’s processing power. Previous coding experience would be helpful, but is not required. The course is for Fourth Grade or higher.

LEARN HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN GAME! (BEGINNING PROGRAMMING WITH SCRATCH)

Although younger people are described as digital natives, this often applies only to how comfortable they are with consuming digital content. This course will help students become more fluent in how digital content is created. In fact, by the end of the two weeks, students will actually create some simple software programs. This Scratch programming course introduces students to the building blocks behind object-oriented programming by creating interactive stories and simple games. Students will gain practice in basic programming concepts like loops, threads, if statements, students will become more familiar with troubleshooting problems, and students will gain practice in adapting and remixing code for their project needs. (Course with limited space).

TENNIS

Through training, improve the technical fundamentals of the game: forehand, backhand, volley, rivet and service. Working movements within the tennis court: lateral, diagonal, back and forth.

Apply technical fundamentals - tactical, to play at a competitive level. Making the training constitutes a space of entertainment for students.

MOUNTAIN BIKE (10-14 YEARS OLD)

On our Mountain Bike course, we develop motor and social skills through learning and enjoying on a bicycle.
Children are strengthened and improve their skills on the bicycle, generating in the children, safety and confidence for a correct handling of the mountain bike, especially in technical circuits. They improve coordination, flexibility, strength and balance with playful activities.
Important: To register you must bring your mountain bike, helmet and gloves. This will be kept in our storage at Nido for the two week period of the course.

CREATING ART WITH CODING *NEW*

Students will use a text based coding language to explore the fundamentals of programming. We will use p5.js, which is a version of javascript used by artists, designers and educators. Topics include variables, functions, conditional statements, loops, objects and arrays.

An example of a student project would be making a digital clock that tells time with rectangles or arcs that change in size and color according to the seconds, minutes and hours. New projects or challenges are always being updated. If you want to take the next step after Scratch or other block based coding environments, try this.

ARCHERY

Archery is a new activity without any risk, and total security and safety for students. This activity tones muscles and develops the capacity of reflexes and visual domain. It requires a certain amount of strength, a lot of technique, coordination and aim. The upper muscles are exercised; back, arms, chest, abs, waist and neck. It also allows students to develop the ability to concentrate and reduces stress. It brings happiness and foments teamwork, and allows the students to be self-critical and to learn from mistakes. (Course with limited space).

ACRO YOGA *NEW*

Acro Kids

This recreational course will turn students' life upside down, literally! Acroyoga is a beautiful and unique practice that involves community, trust, awareness but most importantly fun. It's name expresses most of what will be taught: the fundamentals of yoga and acrobatics, but also balance, inversions, play and connection. It is generally considered a more challenging practice combining strengthening and stretching, but is also known for creating an exhilarating experience. Participating will benefit children of all ages to develop different essential skills such as building trust, team work, physical fitness, body movement and awareness, together with social and emotional intelligence, communication, and confidence.

Early Years Program (2-6 years old)

 

The Nido EYS Summer Camp is planned for children ages 2 through 6. Participants are going to enjoy the school holiday in a rich/fun learning environment which will allow them to acquire new skills and make more friends.

The Summer Camp is staffed with the same high quality teachers that work in our regular school year program. They ensure that the children participate in activities that cover all areas of development while being immersed in English Language settings.

The Early Years program is structured in two sessions, each being two weeks long. Each week has a theme that will allow children to learn about a specific topic which will be woven into all activities planned for the week, including swimming lessons, arts & crafts, cooking, recreational sports, among others.

We want to make the children’s vacations fun-filled and enjoyable!

Special Day

At the end of each session we will have a special day for children to wrap up the experience and share with their families what they have done throughout the two-week period. Be an active participant in their achievements!

Groups

Based on the number of children enrolled in the program, we will have eight to ten groups of approximately twenty kids. Each group will be balanced according to gender and age. Two teachers will be in charge of each group and each will have a classroom of their own. Children ages 2 to 3 will be placed in a special group with more professionals in charge and with a slightly different routine to fit their developmental and personal needs.

Schedule

The EYS Summer Camp day starts at 9 a.m. and finishes at 1 p.m. The groups will have a daily launching activity in their rooms that will set the tone for the day and the week. They will be learning songs, games, and vocabulary related to the weekly theme through fun activities that will let them know what to expect during the camp journey. Throughout the day the children will move with their teachers between different activities, such as: swimming, cooking, music, recreational sports, among others. The kids will have a full day of learning and excitement!
