Welcome to Norfolk Collegiate’s Summer Under the Oak!

We have many new, exciting programs for our campers of all ages, including drone adventures, nature quests, video
production and much more! Our programs feature academic, artistic and athletic programs with various opportunities
for your child to enjoy.

Our mission is to provide parents with options for full day or half day programs in a safe, fun and
enriching experience for all students.

Whether you want to give your child a jump-start to his school year, feed her curiosity of coding and 3-D printing,
our hands-on, experiential programs provide an opportunity for students of all ages.

We invite you to review our programs, categorized by academic, artistic and athletic camps. The booklet is organized
by week and is color coded for your convenience. You’ll find all our program descriptions with dates, times and ages. I
encourage you to visit our website where you may easily register your child for the programs of his or her choosing.

Remember to include the items below when registering:

   • Your child’s health form (State of Virginia: MCH-213E) or most recent physical form from your doctor.
   • The health/emergency form if your child does not currently attend Norfolk Collegiate.

For additional information or if you have any questions, please feel free to call the Summer Under the Oak office
at 757.626.1820. We hope you take advantage of these fantastic opportunities and join the Collegiate family for a
memorable summer!

                                                         Sincerely,

2018 Summer program guide - Norfolk Collegiate School
Center for Academic Achievement
Keep their minds sharp this summer by knocking out summer reading, polishing their writing skills or
expanding their knowledge of coding. 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.
