This Summer, students from all across Los Angeles flocked to Windward to participate in various Summer programs held at the School. The camps spanned numerous disciplines and subjects in athletics, academics, and art.
Six sports were represented this Summer, and students from all backgrounds in athletics came to hone their skills. Through a combination of drills, games, and practices, Summer Camp coaches created a fun and competitive atmosphere for young athletes to develop their techniques and learn the fundamentals of their respective sports.
In academics, students spent time learning and gaining experience in various fields. The STEAM Program held many camps, all using hands-on practice and experimentation as a way to explore the world through science and math. In addition, Tyrone Powell, Windward’s Athletics Director, held his own camp: Camp Tyrone. This camp took students around Los Angeles, exploring Knotts Berry Farm, Dave and Buster’s, the California Science Center, and many more locations with the goal of both learning and having fun.
Finally, the art programs hoped to encourage young campers to explore their passions and experiment with their ideas in the fields of dance, production, and visual arts. Notably, Windward’s unique WRAP (Windward Recording Arts and Production) Camp put students in a collaborative environment and tasked them with creating a finished song from scratch. This inaugural program involved learning a lot about professional music creation and required students to take on the role of a studio musician, audio engineer, or producer.
At Windward Summer Camps, counselors prioritize the growth of all campers, whether they are looking to develop athletic, academic, or artistic abilities. This year was record breaking in its size and scope, and wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing Windward community. We can’t wait until next year!
