SPECIAL SUMMER CAMP ISSUE!

CAMP THEMES AND DATES

Three weeks of preschool summer camp will be offered this year at $110 per session. We hope to see you at camp this summer!!!


“IT’S A SMALL WORLD” CAMP, MAY 19-23

A tour of the world will take us on a journey around the globe to meet new people, appreciate new cultures and climates and make friendships all along the way. Topics highlighted include diversity, inclusivity, hospitality and love for all creation.


“LITTLE LABCOATS” CAMP, JUNE 9-13

Just like Curious George and Sid the Science Kid, we will solve everyday problems using math and science skills and a little curiosity! Each day, children will go to the “lab” to explore basic science concepts and put their theories to the test.


“GO FOR THE GOLD” STORY CAMP, JULY 7-11

Discover the wonder and excitement of reading as we focus on medal-winning children’s literature. Children will also explore the creative writing process as they learn about character, plot and setting. Each class will write a book over the course of the week and discover the little author and illustrator inside them!


Each Camp Features:

· A Four-day theme culminating in “Fun Friday”


· Daily Story-telling and Music Time with Mrs. Jessica


· "Happy Feet" daily with Coach Rusty


· At least one featured guest presenter


· Prayers at Snack Time


· A weekly Chapel session designed to link the theme with the Bible

CAMP OVERVIEW

Camp Times: Each camp lasts Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Camp drop off begins at 8:45 a.m. Camp activities begin at 9 a.m. Camp ends at 12 noon.


Ages Served/Classes Offered: Children who were 2 by 1/1/14 through rising kindergarteners will be served. Generally, classes will be grouped as Young 2’s, 2’s, 3’s and 4’s using birthdates. Depending on camp enrollment, some ages may be combined.


What to Wear/Bring: Send your camper in comfortable clothes that can get dirty with a backpack or tote bag with a change of clothes and a water bottle daily. Snack will be provided. We are a nut-free school/church.


Drop-off/Pick-up: We encourage you to utilize our carpool line for drop off and pick up! Enter the church parking lot from Washington Street and form the line through the Hancock Street portico. Teachers may unbuckle your child in the morning. At pick-up, teachers will walk the children to you but are not allowed to buckle straps. You may, of course, walk your child to the classroom whenever you prefer.
