Instructor: Pam Ober
Join us for this magical camp devoted to all things Harry Potter! During this fun-filled week, students will attend classes in Potions, Transfiguration, Herbology, and Care of Magical Creatures. We will search for Scabbers, make our own wands, outsmart the basilisk, defeat dementors, whomp willows, and more! This camp will concentrate on Books 1 and 2. Pre-reading of the books is not necessary (although it does increase students’ enjoyment), and only fun excerpts will be shared. We will be cooking up various edible concoctions (including everyone’s favorite Lemon Fizz!), so please let us know if your child has any food restrictions. Campers should bring a snack (peanut free please) and drink every day except on the last day when we will have our end-of-term feast. Note: New and returning campers are welcome! The headmistress always makes changes and additions so that every camper will be happy. Some children have attended this camp every single time it has run – and they still come back! This summer’s camp is going to be fantastic!
