OUR 2019 SUMMER CAMPS SESSIONS


Each session was two weeks long. Families could choose up to three camp sessions.

Arts Outside! Camp (July 8-12, July 15-19)

Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 12:30pm

Monday through Friday, 1:00 pm- 4:30 pm (Carkeek Park only)

Nature breeds inspiration for all types of art forms. We’ll dive into a number of different ways to express ourselves: painting, drawing, collage, dance, music, and more, all using natural materials and inspired by the park around us. Children will learn all about ways to be creative in the great outdoors.

Construction Camp (July 22-26, July 29- Aug 2)

Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 12:30pm

Monday through Friday, 1:00 pm- 4:30 pm (Carkeek Park only)

Does your kiddo love to build, dig, create, and construct? This camp is an opportunity to explore different ways to be an engineer through interactions with the outdoors. Children will have open-ended projects using the elements of nature to create structures, build forts, use tools, and examine the built elements of the park around them.

Tools of Discovery Camp (Aug 5-9, Aug 12-16)

Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 12:30pm

Discover the park’s many wonders in this two-week camp. Children will encounter the insects, trails, and nooks of the park using tools for science learning- magnifying glasses, binoculars, maps, shovels, books, and more. We’ll adventure in and around our fabulous class spaces and hone our investigative skills and become true experts in the park’s ecology, history, and hidden secrets!

A DAY AT SUMMER CAMP


Arrival, greeting time (8:30 AM*): Children will be dropped off at a designated location in the park you choose. Families will have an opportunity to connect with our teachers, get settled, and engage in an opening activity.

Group meeting & plan: Children and instructors come together for a meeting where they will sing songs, dance, and discuss the day’s happening.

Free play & enrichment activities: Children will be free to explore the class space, play and collaborate with others. Instructors will set out activities based on the camp theme and support children in completing them if they choose.

Snack & story: We provide a healthy snack (usually a fruit/veggie and a grain). Snack is a great time for us to tell a story or meet together.

Adventure or explore time: Teachers will lead an adventure out into the park and stop to play at one of the park’s many features.

Lunch & free play: We’ll have lunch out of our lunch boxes, either in the class space or on our adventure.
