OUR Vacation Camps
At Breakwater Enrichment Center vacation camps, participants are empowered to make their own choices about what to do based within a framework of thoughtfully constructed activities and the child’s individual interests. Whether a day camp or a week long adventure, camps offer children a variety of exciting, engaging and inspiring options- from investigative play with loose parts for our youngest friends, to art provocations, science experiments, group story times, off campus field trips, and, of course, lots and lots of uninterrupted fun!
February Vacation Camps
Winter Wonderland Adventures! | Open to all students in grades K-4
During this Winter Wonderland Adventure Camp, we will be venturing out to explore Maine's beautiful wintry landscape! We will spend our mornings off-campus engaged in a medley of winter activities such as sledding, snow-shoeing, ice-skating, and fort-building. We will pair our days with various activities on Breakwater's campus. During the afternoon, students will have the choice between art activities, science experiments, rock climbing, and more snowy games on our playground. Each day will conclude with a closing circle to share appreciations while sipping hot chocolate. Note: No camp on Monday, February 19th (President's Day).
Make a Music Video Vacation Camp | Open to all students in grades 4-8
Join Breakwater Enrichment Center and Unwritten Roads as we prepare to make the ultimate music video! Calling all budding stars! A fun, week-long introduction to green screen filmmaking with a twist- students will create their own music videos to their favorite songs! Open to all students in grades 4-8. Note: No camp on Monday, February 19th (President's Day).
April Vacation Camps
Nature and Animal Camp | Open to all students in grades K-4
Get ready to adventure outside this spring! We will be jumping into a week full of outdoor and nature based adventures, field trips, activities, and crafts! At 9 am, students will head off campus (weather permitting) for a morning or full day field trip! Most days we will return together as a group for lunch and spend the afternoon doing nature and environmentally friendly hands-on learning such as clean-eating baking, paper making, nature based art, outdoor free play, planting, and more! Each day will be a new and exciting experience. Strap on your spring boots and jackets and get ready to celebrate outdoor adventure week by heading out into the open air with Breakwater Vacation Camp!
Green Screen Filmmaking | Open to all students in grades 4-8
Are you the next George Lucas? Jennifer Lawrence? Leonardo Dicaprio? In one week students will work together to write, direct and film an original movie. Students will produce their own film from page to screen and take on leadership roles as writers, set and costume designers, actors, directors, and editors. The course will culminate with a film screening in true Hollywood style! Join Breakwater Enrichment Center and Unwritten Roads as we embark on a filmmaking vacation camp!
This camp is offered in partnership with Unwritten Roads, a creative writing workshop for young adults.
Camp activities and learning environments always demonstrate Breakwater's philosophy of learning and represent our core values. Children are supported and guided through their day by skilled and trained educators who bring just the right balance of structured fun and open ended play!
