Hogwarts Unlimited February Break 2016

Registration is closed

Grades: Kindergarten – 6th grade
February 16-19 (Tuesday-Friday)
Niskayuna High School, D262
9:00am - 12:00pm
February 16-19th
$ 85.00
Instructor: Headmistress Pamela Ober

Join us for this magical camp dedicated to all things Harry Potter! During this fun-filled week, students will attend classes in Potions, Care of Magical Creatures, Transfiguration, Defense against the Dark Arts, and more. We will search for Scabbers, make our own wands, defeat dementors, whomp willows, and more! This camp will concentrate on Books 1-3. 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 new favorite Butter Beer!), 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 witches and wizards 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 year’s camp promises to be super exciting with new games, crafts, and activities!
