A Day in the
Life at Camp

Open World’s daily, drop-off/pick-up workshops offer students something they can really look forward to each summer.

Parents and guardians can rest assured that students are supervised throughout the day, and kids will feel seen, heard, and cared for the entire time they’re with us.

While every workshop has a unique schedule and curriculum, below you can find a rough schedule describing an example day at an Open World workshop.

(Times are approximate and can be different between workshops and locations)

Morning Session

  • 8:45 – 9:00 a.m.: Students dropped off at Open World to begin the day.
  • 9:00 – 10:00 a.m.: First project for the day. The first session of each workshop often includes an icebreaker activity for kids to get to know their instructors and fellow students.
  • 10:00 – 10:30 a.m.: Break
  • 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.: Second project for the day or continuing the morning’s first assignment.

Afternoon Schedule

  • 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.: First afternoon project or a visit by an industry guest. Every Open World workshop includes one day with a visit by a professional from a creative industry. These guests can help connect what the students are learning with some of the real-life applications of their lessons.
  • 1:30 – 2:00 p.m.: Break
  • 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.: Second afternoon project or continuing the afternoon’s first assignment.
  • 3:00 p.m.: Students who have not signed up for the Extended Day Program are picked up from Open World.

Optional Add-On Afternoon Care

  • 3:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.: When registering for a workshop, parents can add an optional Extended Day Program that includes games, activities, and other fun, one-off projects to take home.
