Summer Opportunities

Summer is a wonderful time to relax, explore the outdoors, and connect with family and friends. It’s also the perfect time to explore new interests or delve a little deeper into current interests, hobbies, and academic enrichment. Here, we share camp offerings we think would be a great fit for our students. We are pleased to share June opportunities from some of our incredible St. Barnabas teachers as well as opportunities throughout the summer from area high schools and organizations.

Math + Card Tricks with Dr. O'Keefe
Rising 6th - 8th grade students
Tuesday, June 25 - Thursday, June 27; 10am - 12:30pm
Cost: $150
Math+ Card Tricks will focus on the principles behind mathematical card tricks. In each class, students will be presented with a card trick and then will be tasked to figure it out individually and in groups. Once the mathematics behind the trick is uncovered, students will then practice it with each other to build their repertoire. By the end of the course, students will have mastered over a dozen card tricks and will be able to explain the mathematical principles behind them. No sleight of hand or fake thumbs are used in these tricks - just mathematical thinking! Students will be excited to come home and show off their new found skills with their family and friends. For many of the tricks, the mathematical explanation may be more impressive than the trick itself! All tricks have been tested and vetted with other students, and the results have been fantastic. The only prerequisite for this course is a desire to figure out math card tricks and a willingness to blend frustration with fun and fascination.
NOTE: The course will be offered in person at St. Barnabas School, but registration is coordinated through Redwood Prep.
