Our programs also take learning outside the classroom to challenge students in areas like robotics, chess and science exploration. Center for Arts Hands-on art classes, musical theater and musical instruments take the spotlight in this program with creativity at every turn. With projects ranging from pottery to musical theater camp, all creatives are welcome. Center for Athletics Summer is a great time to get outside, run around, try new sports and brush up on athletic skills. Pack their sunscreen and tennis shoes, and we’ll gear them up for an active, outdoor experience. Center for Outside Exploration The outdoors is calling, and we’re responding by traveling to some of the area’s best fishing and volunteer sites around Coastal Virginia. Students will visit several historical sites, learn about their local ecosystems while raving about their summer fun. To register, visit www.NorfolkCollegiate.org/SummerPrograms.
