This summer camp experience is designed to stimulate imagination and creativity and encourage a lifelong love of learning through unique weekly themes. The programs for Summer 2017 are listed below.
Camps for 3 – 12 Year Olds
Beach Week: We hope you can join us for some fun at the beach! Our beachcombers will make sand playdough, study sea life, and have fun throwing a beach ball while exploring math concepts. Bring your beach towel and be ready to go “Surfin’ Safari” with us!
Animal Antics: This week, our zoologists will learn about animal tracks, camouflage, and natural predators. We will explore preservation of animal habitats, thereby ensuring the survival of a species. The children will have a special visit from Noah’s Arc Workshop to make their own stuffed animals to treasure for years to come!
Around the World: Travel the globe with us as we immerse ourselves in world cultures. We will explore a new locale each day as we make our way to five different continents! Learn about the amazing diversity of our world through crafts, music, and the sampling of ethnic foods.
Prehistoric Times: Join us as we enter the prehistoric world of dinosaurs! We will learn about fossils, identify skeletons, and research dinosaur habitats. Our paleontologists will excavate their snack, make a dinosaur fossil, and create a diorama to showcase their new found knowledge!
Ocean Explorers: Join us as we experience the wonders of our world’s oceans. We will explore the animals and plants that live in the water.
Water and Watermelon: This week we will pour, drip, and draw with water. For our food tasting activity, we will enjoy watermelon this week.
Bubbles & Balloons: This week we will focus on air, and blowing bubbles and balloons. We will create art using them as well.
