Summer Camp Programs

During the summer, our after school classrooms become EXCITING full day summer camp programs.  These are very popular programs that our “big kids” look forward to each year.  A wide variety of fun and educational activities are planned around a summer-long theme (ex: Around the World in 54 Days, Super Science, the Eco System, Careers etc.).  The children learn about these topics through hands-on learning and creative group projects. Some of the activities planned will include arts and crafts, outside games, experiments, games, research, building with manipulatives, reading, music, as well as daily field trip to parks, the zoo, museums, the swimming pool, putt-putt golf, the movie theater, the library, etc.  We also help each child complete the public library’s summer reading program. The center provides a morning and afternoon snack. A nutritious sack lunch is brought from home daily due to fieldtrips away from the center and to allow for our flexible camp schedules. Additional fees are charged for swimming lessons, which we go to at the beginning of each summer and sometimes a big, end-of-the-summer field trip. Everything else is included in the monthly fee.

Each classroom has a maximum of 16 children. Kindergarten and first grade students are in the summer camp 1 classroom upstairs and first through fifth graders are in the summer camp 2 classroom downstairs. Both rooms have two teachers whose schedules overlap from 10-3 when filedtrips are taken. The classrooms go on similar fieldtrips and will plan a couple of events to do together each week. This is an exciting program with one adventure after another all summer long!
