Summer Camps - Enrollment Open!

Storytelling / Story Acting
July 7 - 18, 2014
9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. (extended care available)
Ages 3-7

Children are natural storytellers.  In this camp children will have opportunities to develop, create, and reenact ideas of familiar and unique stories.  Working together as a community, they will be using a variety of materials and strategies to represent their ideas and thinking of how stories should be performed.  The children will engage in investigations such as shadow stories, creating costumes, representing through painting and writing, and discussions to develop different concepts of a story.

Young Children as Geographers & Engineers
July 21 - August 1, 2014
9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. (extended care available)
Ages 3-7

Children show interest in how things are made and how they work.  This camp will support young children's interests and ideas through investigations of nature and it's elements.  The children will explore their environment, strengthen ideas of how things work, create/design structures and contraptions, and develop stronger ideas of how to problem solve as team members.  Understanding how things work is a natural interest in children - working with this camp will help support children with a hands-on experience and value their ideas through discussion and introduction to new materials and experiences.
