Welcome to the Brandywine School of Wizardry where we host fantastical full day and half day Children attending the half day program are involved in a sampling of the major activities – sorting, wands, spells, dueling, potions, quidditch, trips to the candy and joke shop, and as time permits, are involved in the other “classes” such as divination, herbology for example. They are also involved in the major parts of the weeklong mystery/unique theme for the week. Children attending the full day program do more of each activity as well as branch out into other classes such as care of magical creatures and charms for example and engage in wizarding activities beyond the classes. Full day students bring brown bag lunches, snacks, an and a water bottle. Half day students bring a snack and a water bottle. Each week and every program are unique, though favorite activities such as quidditch, and “shopping” at our joke shop with galleons earned throughout the week are mainstays. Young wizards work together to apply what they learn in wizarding school to solve whatever seems to be plaguing us around that time. Prior to a week of camp, students receive an "owler" in the mail inviting them to their first day of term, along with secret passwords to know each day to gain points for their houses. Classes and Activities You will see wizarding professors teaching our own lessons. Weather permitting, activities take place inside and outside.
