Hogwarts has a satellite campus at Sonoma State University this summer, it seems. Have you ever dreamed that you received a letter welcoming you to Hogwarts? All Harry Potter fans are invited to participate in a wonderful week of wizarding! Once arriving at Hogwarts (Sonoma State University) you will be sorted into houses and given your wizarding class schedule. You’ll attend your Hogwarts classes every day, culminating at the end of the week with a Philosopher’s Stone Treasure Hunt, Quidditch matches, and student performances.
Create and customize your own wand in Charms class! In Potions, concoct essence of nightshade and troll slime! Discover your Patronus in Transfiguration, and learn how to duel in Defense Against the Dark Arts! In Care of Magical Creatures, study dragons and other amazing creatures. In Astronomy, assemble glow in the dark constellations, read your tea leaves in Divination, and transplant mandrakes in Herbology. Don’t be late to your introduction to flying class (on broomsticks), which is compulsory.
Also, bring to life the memorable and incredible characters of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books by selecting a scene from your favorite book, creating a script of that scene, and having the opportunity to perform that scene with fellow housemates. You and your schoolmates will have many chances to earn points for your houses. Who will win the House Cup?
Please note: This class will cover books one through four in the series. Clips from the first four films, as well as from documentaries and age-appropriate fan videos will be interspersed when applicable to the curriculum.
