It’s All Greek to Me: Olympus Adventures

Grades Completed: 3, 4, 5

Camp #814: July 8-12, 2024, AM Camps (9am-12pm)

Location: Roper Elementary    

Can you imagine fighting the many-headed Hydra, stealing the Golden Fleece from a fire-breathing dragon or flying with wings of wax and feathers? If you think you can defeat the Basilisk or the Minotaur, then spend the week on Mt. Olympus exploring the gods and goddesses of Greek myths and legends. Learn about the Trojan War, perform a play, write myths and compete in an Arachne weaving contest. A week-long board-game of By Jove! and standing with Greek Hoplites in an outdoor game called Phalanx are just part of the fun. On Friday we will enjoy a Greek feast, dressing in tunics and sharing the week’s adventure on Mt. Olympus.    

Taught by Shelley Clayburn, Retired Teacher and UNL Student Teacher Supervisor; Neal Clayburn, Former Associate Director of NSEA; Nick Clayburn, Adjunct Math Professor at Nebraska Wesleyan and UNL
