Following a fun morning of programs and lunch, LAS summer students are able to take part in afternoon clubs. Clubs are a great way for students to extend beyond their classrooms and meet fellow campers and friends from different programs. Students are able to choose from a diverse selection of 9 different clubs prior to arriving at camp:
1. Theater and Performing Arts Club
Channel your inner drama enthusiast and get ready to embrace everything the Theater and Performing Arts Club has to offer. From learning about the elements of production to mastering the art of improv, this club will take students through all the essentials of crafting and carrying out an encore-worthy play. This club encourages students to step out of their comfort zones, and by doing so helps them to develop their sense of self-confidence and improve their communication and public speaking skills.
2. Music Club
This LAS summer club invites beginners and experienced musicians alike to participate in one of three streams of musical study—guitar, piano, or DJ and music mixing. Personalized lessons mean students are able to learn at their own pace and work on the skills they need to become talented musicians and excellent performers.
3. Film Making Club
Calling all movie buffs! Whether you want to be the main presence in front of a camera, one of the creative minds behind a script, or be responsible for carrying out the intricacies of directing, the Film Making Club is for you! Our filmmakers work in a diversely talented team, and combine their ideas, imagination, and efforts to create an award-worthy film. There’s a role and a place for everyone. Ready… and action!

5. Arts Studio Club

Participating in this club is an awesome way to test your creative limits and capture your feelings and thoughts in a tangible way.
6. Robotics and Coding Club
How do you turn a string of numbers and letters into an action performed by a robot? How has programming changed throughout the years and what direction is it heading in now?

Whether you are new to the coding world or already have previous coding experience, this club lets students develop critical thinking skills and explore this rapidly expanding and changing field.
7. Language Club
