Wizarding Academy

Summer Wizarding Academy

July 13-17, 2015

Join us for the eighth annual Wizarding Academy, for students who have completed grades 4-9!

New This Year!

This year, campers will participate in a Midsummer’s Birthday Ball Design Contest.

Like the Yule Ball in Goblet of Fire, each house will design and propose a “Midsummer’s Birthday Ball” for Harry Potter’s birthday.

The winning team’s design will be planned and held on a separate Midsummer Birthday Ball event on Friday, July 31 in ‘Hogwarts’ at the UWMC campus. Tickets will be sold and the ball will be open to friends and families!

All campers will enjoy the usual activities— arts and crafts, trivia, Quidditch games and fun new games and riddles!
