Marsummer camp in Tampach 5, 2015 (TAMPA, Fla.) – Learn to dance with Bollywood flair. Build Lego vehicles that withstand demolition derbies. Print a 3D invention to impress the CAMP IDS “Shark Tank.” Or row leisurely across Lake Lipsey.

From sports to arts to academics, Corbett Prep’s CAMP IDS brims with options that will create a memorable summer for students in PreK3 through high school. The philosophy of camp is to offer opportunities to explore and enjoy as an extension of school.

Camps are divided into seven weekly sessions from June 15 to July 31. A favorite in the Tampa Bay area for nearly two decades, CAMP IDS offers more than 60 full- and half-day choices on the beautiful lakeside campus of Corbett Preparatory School of IDS. Child care is available before and after camps, as is transportation to certain areas.

CAMP IDS appeals to a wide variety of interests and ages. Science and technology camps provide avenues to explore coding, astronomy, marine science, paleontology, Lego engineering and even Minecraft. Communications camps put future journalists and movie-makers to work in broadcasting, Claymation, magazine and filmmaking. Academic camps take imaginative approaches as they allow students to hone reading, writing and math skills during summer break. Students can also try out new languages during French, Chinese and Spanish camps that feature fun, culture-based activities that may involve cooking, music or art.

Visual and performing arts camps showcase students’ talents. Students can immerse themselves in art from around the world or try out techniques of master artists. Recyclables, natural materials and furniture pieces get new life in other creative camps. And musicians, actors and dancers will find plenty to like about music, strings, drama, dance and musical theatre. This year, students in grades 1-8 will perform in Seussical Jr. and high school-aged students will appear in Into the Woods.

Corbett Prep’s cypress-covered campus is the perfect backdrop for outdoor activities, and CAMP IDS delivers. Look around the grounds, and you’ll see campers enjoying soccer, canoeing, fishing, flag football and model rocketry. CAMP IDS also offers archery, golf, tennis, cheerleading, basketball, matball, off-campus adventures and wilderness excursions.
