•Tuesday to Thursday – Campers will attend classes with visiting professors and learn about such things as Care of Magical Animals (meet our turtles and snakes), Herbology (local plants and their uses), Potions (science with a magical twist), and Defense Against the Dark Arts (working to help our community) and much more.
