Summer Camp 2019 – Follow Us Up…STREAM
We hope your children, ages 12 months through 5th grade, will join us for an exciting summer full of Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art and Math!
What do we do at camp?
Our Certified Nature Explore Classroom will offer many opportunities to discover our natural resources, and also to simply enjoy nature. Most days we will gather for morning meeting to share ideas and find out what’s in store for us in the upcoming day. During morning meeting, the children will engage in other activities such as Godly Play, Yoga, Bible stories and sing-alongs. Later in the day, the children will have the opportunity to participate in outdoor art activities, woodworking, building using both conventional and non-conventional materials, water exploration – and of course running, jumping and playing with friends!
In the Art Room – The children will have the opportunity to explore open-ended art. They will experiment with a variety of art mediums, tempera paint, water colors, play dough and clay to allow them to express their creativity. The children will also be introduced to a few artists and learn about their unique techniques, such as Jackson Pollock. The children will work on both individual and collaborative works of art.
In the Engineering Room – The children will be presented with many different building materials and will be challenged to design and build various structures. The challenges will stimulate the children’s creativity and expand their critical thinking skills. Some of these experiments include building bridges using straws, or building small rafts that float.
In the Math and Science Room – The children will take part in many science experiments using water in both its liquid and solid forms. They will experiment with sinking and floating and use their math skills to learn about volume. The children will also use their math skills to participate in cooking and gardening activities.
Each week we will have special visitors and guest speakers. We will have yoga on the playground and music with Vanessa Johnson, who will work with the older children to sing in a choir. We will have Mud Day and Messy-Art Monday outside on the playground. Every Wednesday will be water play day.
We hope to see you and your little campers making memories with us this summer!
