Online School Break

STEM and Stories Online

Join us for adventure! Online School Break Adventures pack the fun of our live summer camps into just five full days of adventure where young heroes can make new friends and save the world. For our wizards, warriors, and zombies, your quest awaits you.

 

When you enter the mythical world of Sidleterra, intrigue is around every corner. From STEM-based experiments to virtual sword or NERF battles, your homebound hero’s journey is both exciting and educational.

 

Each day’s adventure runs from 9 AM – 3 PM with extended day options available between 8:30 AM and 5 PM for ages 7-10 and 11-13. Participants need computers with a video camera and microphone. Access to a portable device for use outdoors is not required but encouraged. We have live instructors working with your kids via our conference platform.  Once registered, we will send digital files containing projects to complete for the child to help with the physical exercises aspect of the adventures.

In this challenging time of social distancing and shelter-in-place, we are excited to provide a full week of educational adventure during Spring Break!


If we have enough people enrolled (minimum of 6), we will be running our Online Spring Break Adventures:

  • 4/13-4/17
  • 4/20-4/24
  • 4/27-5/1
 

These spans of dates should help accommodate a number of different states. If you don’t see a date range that works for you and you can help enroll at least 6 people, we will try to hold additional weeks. All times listed are in Eastern Daylight Time.


Full week of online adventures: $490 (we are keeping the early registration pricing instead of going to full pricing) and designed for ages 7-10 and 11-13. SIBLING DISCOUNTS: Discounts available for each additional sibling.

Pre-registration is required. Participants will receive digital files with simple creative projects to complete before each day that will allow the adventure to be both online and offline (yes, what your hero accomplishes off the screen can help them navigate the adventure). Minimal supplies necessary such as printing paper, cardboard, tape, paint or markers, and a great deal of imagination.  Your child will be encouraged to bring a portable device (with camera) outside for parts of the adventure and find certain objects.  The adventure is a hybrid of both on screen and live action.

The Story School is proud to be partnered with Guardian Adventures in a joint effort to promote educational story-based adventures through online vehicles like Google Classroom and Zoom. Guardian Adventures licenses the programs listed here on behalf of The Story School.
