The Wiogora School of Wonder and Wisdom
Wiogora is First Unitarian's magical summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) program. For two weeks in July / August, First Unitarian Church is transformed into a magical castle that houses the Wiogora School of Wonder and Wisdom.
The Wiogora School of Wonder & Wisdom creates a unique experience to enhance imagination, creativity, teamwork, & life skills.
Young Scholars are sorted into four special Hogwarts-style houses, play Quidditch, mix potions, and compete for house points. Inspired by the Harry Potter books of J.K. Rowling, our program guides scholars to discover their own mysterious power in Wiogora and live it in the outside world.
Costume challenges, assemblies and parties, age appropriate activities, classes, quests, and house time all create the feel of being in the wonderful world of Harry Potter.

Summer Program 2021:
This year our summer program will run from July 26th 2021 to Aug 6th 2021. We'll have both an online program and an in-person option, so that families can choose the program that works best for them.
Every weekday from 9:00AM - 3:30 PM, with before care from 7:00 AM and after care until 5:30 PM
Because of COVID 19, our in-person program will be smaller this year with a maximum of 60 scholars. We'll utilize our outside spaces as much as possible and keep our scholars in cohorts to maximize safety.

We'll use our google classrooms to provide a safe online space.
