About Our Camps

  • FIRST Tech Challenge Prep Camp: Robot CAD & Design

    722A2640

    Come and learn how to design and CAD robots for FIRST Tech Challenge. During our two-week camp, learn AutoDesk Fusion 360 as you design, 3D model, and then build solutions to robot challenges. The intent of this camp is to prepare campers for roles on robotics teams by giving them hands-on experience tackling fun challenges. This camp teaches specific skills needed to 3D design as a part of a FIRST Tech Challenge team, but is also fun and valuable by itself. Space is limited. 

  • FIRST Tech Challenge Prep Camp: Java Coding for FTC

    Do you want to learn to Code for robots?  During our three-week camp campers will learn how to program in Java and use Java to control a FIRST Tech Challenge robot. By the end of the three weeks, campers will program the robots to both move autonomously, based on sensor input, as well as to operate based on input from a remote control. To participate in this camp campers must complete Unit 1, From the Calculator to the Computer, and Unit 2, State Transformation, of a free programming course from EdX (see course page) before the first day of the camp. This preparatory work could take 15-20 hours, depending on experience level, so please plan ahead. This camp teaches specific skills needed to program as a part of a FIRST Tech Challenge team, but is also fun and valuable by itself. Space is limited. 

  • FIRST LEGO League Prep Camp

    FLL Boot Camp Small-1

    Do you want to learn robotics from the two-time FIRST LEGO League State Champions, holders of the top robot score in the 2019-2020 season? Join our experienced staff for a week of EV3 Lego Robotics fun. The focus of the camp will be to prepare for the 2021-2022 First Lego League robotics season by designing, building and coding robots and attachments to take on the new season’s challenges. Space is limited.

  • College Essay Workshop

    College Essay Workshop Small-1

    Ages: Rising High School Seniors

    In this workshop, students entering Senior year will get a head start on writing their college essay.  Students will first investigate what makes for a successful essay. Then they will engage in exercises designed to help them discover what they want to write about - what story do they want to tell about themselves. They will learn to control both the outer story and the inner story - the text and the subtext. We will also dig into what supplements are all about. The atmosphere will be relaxed and collegial. By the end of the week, students will not only have one workable draft of a college essay, but also a trusted community of readers to help see them through the fall application season.

  • Debate

    Debate with awards in China-1

    Debate at WaringWorks

    Debate Coach Tim Averill and members of the Waring Debate Society will be offering two weeks of instruction in debate to incoming 6-12th graders and members of the greater Beverly community who are interested in developing their skills in debate. Participants can sign up for one or both weeks of instruction. Waring Debate has just completed a very successful season, with beginning and experienced teams winning several tournaments. Waring is currently the 9th largest debate program in New England despite our very small student body.

    Waring Debaters attend tournaments locally and regionally, as well as competing in the Barkley Forum for High Schools at Emory University in Atlanta. 

    Introduction to Debate - This week will be devoted to learning the basic skills of debate, including public speaking, researching topics, writing persuasive arguments, note-taking, and refuting the arguments of opponents. Students who enroll will find that the course will help them in all their academic work for school and will help them to gain self-confidence and develop a stronger voice. The week will conclude with a “tournament.”

    Advanced Debate is for students who have taken Introduction to Debate in the past and who wish to get a head start on the debate topic for September and October in the National Speech and Debate Association. This week is especially designed for current and prospective members of the Waring Debate Society (both the new Middle School team and the 8-12 high school team). All students are welcome to join, including those who attend schools other than Waring but who would like to develop programs in their own schools.

    Ages: Incoming 6th-9th graders

     

  • Soccer Skills

    Soccer Boot Camp Small-1

    Soccer Skills

    Soccer Skills is a camp for 8 to 14-year-olds facilitated by Aztec Soccer's Mike Kersker and coached by Waring School's Varsity Soccer Captains.
