Extracurricular Activities and Travel
Extracurricular activities and travel are a core element of the Camelot approach to education. These activities allow students to explore specific interests while forming stronger relationships with their peers. All students are encouraged to participate!
Camelot fields the following co-ed athletic teams as part of our participation in the Carolina Athletics League:
- Table tennis
- Ultimate Frisbee
Students can begin participating in athletics during 6th grade.
FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Lego League Robotics
Teams of students compete both statewide and nationally in robotics competitions. These activities teach students technology-related skills, teamwork, and practical problem-solving. Opportunities to explore robotics are available to students as young as Kinder MAPP.
After School Club
Offerings from the past school year included:
- Cake baking
- FIRST Lego League Jr.
- Studio art club
- Sewing open studio
- Soccer shots
- Strategy board games
- Battle of the books
In addition, a chapter of the National Honor Society is very active on campus, organizing service and other charitable activities.
Amazing day and overnight trips that blend learning with building community are also an essential part of the Camelot experience. The field trips may be part of an ‘X-schedule’ class (run in January and May) that offer in-depth looks at people, places and institutions close to home, or they may take the form of school-sponsored trips to cities or national parks. The mountains of North Carolina, the cities of Charleston and Williamsburg, as well as Yosemite, and Yellowstone national parks are just some of the recent destinations that have provided memorable experiences. Recent international trips include a five week immersion experience in Ecuador and a 10 day tour of China. Middle Grades students have trips specifically planned for their age-group as well as school-wide trips to choose from.
Global Studies Certificate Program
Camelot’s Global Studies Certificate is a 2-year program that recognizes and encourages students who are engaging with their community and the world. Students may begin the program in 10th or 11th grade.
