About Our Success in Middle School Camp

For 2024, this camp is only accepting students who will attend Waterford in the fall.

What if you had a crystal ball that would tell you what middle school was like? What if you knew the problems you’d face, the skills you’d need and how to manage it all? Welcome to Success in Middle School. In this fun camp we will be focusing on the essential skills of middle school at Waterford: organization, note-taking, planning, mindfulness, friendship, self advocacy and school resources. We’ll be learning all this through wild interactive activities, designed to help you build friendships and confidence. We will learn from some of the latest research on building good habits and some experts on middle school: middle schoolers themselves! Class will include scavenger hunts, know-yourself quizzes, backpack makeovers, skits, and fun classroom teamwork activities. Come learn the secret that your teachers have been keeping for years. With the right toolbox, middle school can be a blast! Especially for students new to Middle School or new to Waterford.
