Summer Camp Opportunities


  • Raspberry Pi Camp will he held the week of July 8th at Peabody for rising 6th-9th grade students.

A Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer that is a powerful learning tool for coding and electronics. If your student is interested in learning about robotics, coding, and circuitry and wants to learn real world coding and applications, this is the perfect summer camp for them. Go to cvillepicamp.com to learn more and sign up.


  • Light House Studio has opened registration for their Summer Film Academy and would love to have some Peabody students! Here is a link to the list of workshops.
