How are your students spending the summer? What if they could experience some of the magic of Harry Potter right near home? A lucky group of students from Warrenton, Va got to spend a magical week that included mixing potions, playing Quidditch, taking flying lessons and competing for the coveted House Cup. The Harry Potter-themed weeklong camp is just one of the many summer programs Highland School offers, with other sessions built around activities ranging from sports, supplemental learning, arts and crafts and even a few opportunities to hone their Minecraft skills in a cooperative environment.
It’s been a few years since the Harry Potter camp was last offered, but this year marked the first session led by Highland’s Middle School Latin teacher (and Harry Potter-aficionado) Celia Kelly. According to David Henrickson, Highland's Director of Communications, “Ms. Kelly has done a fantastic job bringing lots of little details into the activities to help bring the books to life for her students.”
