Movie Trivia

In case you’re more into the movies than the books (it’s okay, we don’t judge), then this movie trivia event might be more your speed.

Online “Camping”

Harry Potter Online Writing Camp

Summer is all about the fun activities you can do until school starts again, even if they’re online, and even if they’re about creative writing. The Harry Potter Online Writing Camp is great for kids who want a creative outlet and also love Harry Potter! The camp is hosted by two university students, and kids will be able to join to make their own spells and potions. Not to mention, they’ll be able to write using creative and magical writing prompts. The camp is $90 per child and is conducted over Zoom starting on Monday, June 22, running through Friday, June 26. Check out the event page for details and registration.


The ROCK’s Virtual Summer Camp

Each week, the ROCK Center for Youth Development hosts a themed summer event. This week – you guessed it – is Harry Potter! Camp begins on Monday, June 22 and continues through Friday, June 26. Registration is free for kids who wish to participate, and they will receive a virtual camp kit for all activities. Many of these activities will have a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) focus. All necessary instructions and registration information can be found on the event website.



Hour of Code

You can pretty much be a wizard of the internet these days if you know how to code. This virtual workshop allows kids to have an hour of introductory coding education.

One will be on Monday, June 22 at 2:30 p.m. PDT, while the other is on Wednesday, June 24 at 2:30 p.m. PDT. Registration is free, and all information can be found on the event page.
