Summer Camps

Registration is now open!

Dear Parents of Students in Grades K-8,

Please see the 2017 Brochure link below for information regarding our 2017 Highlander Summer Camps for kids! In this, our fourth summer offering programming, we have expanded both the number and the type of opportunities for your children.

The camps offer students opportunities to explore various aspects of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) in a fun and engaging environment while also providing them with opportunities to learn about leading a healthy life. New this year, we have an offering for our future little Highlanders, with a session for children who are 4 or 5 years old.

Our students always have a wonderful experience! You can see for yourself some of the great memories made over the past three summers if you check out a few of our student created videos listed below.

Seniors: G Suite Takeout Directions

Seniors please remember that your Baldwin-Whitehall student G Suite Account (Gmail, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.) will be deleted at the end of the 2016-2017 school year. It is important for you to make a copy of your work in order to take it with you. Google Takeout is a wonderful tool provided by Google that allows you to download all of your work from Drive and take it with you. This process does take some time depending on how much data you plan to download from your Google account. We suggest that you complete this process at home so that your downloaded data is on a personal computer.

Google Takeout Website:


You can choose how you want to download your data from Google. If you plan to upload items from your District Google Drive to your personal Google account, it is recommended to download data as Microsoft files. For items in your Google Drive, Google Documents will be downloaded as Microsoft Word files, Google Sheets will be downloaded as Microsoft Excel files, and Google Presentations will be downloaded as Microsoft PowerPoint files. Google Forms do not download when using Takeout. With this, it is recommended that you share any Google Forms that you want to save with your personal Google Account and then make a copy.

When you upload these items into your personal Google Drive, you can convert all of them back to the original Google template once transferred.

On behalf of the District’s Technology Department, good luck with the next chapter of your lives!
