Registration opens February 1st

Our weekly theme-based summer camp is open to all children ages 3 to 9 years old. Camp runs Monday – Friday from 9:00am-3:00 pm with a Before Care option beginning at 8:30 am. The first week of camp starts on Monday, July, 8th and the last week of camp starts August 12th.

Week 1: July 8-12  Kitchen Chemistry
Measure, mix and pour!  Using everyday ingredients from the kitchen cupboard, we will be making all kinds of cool stuff.  From playdough to slime, this week is sure to be hands-on and messy. Better here than in your kitchen!

Week 2: July 15-19  Penguins and Polar Bears: Life at the Poles
There is a little bit of magic associated with the north and south poles, but life on each is very different.  This week the children will learn about the geography and animals that live there, as well as the impact of climate change on each region.

Week 3: July 22-26  Architecture and Design
What would your perfect home look like?  Would there be an indoor pool? A gaming room?  Would it be shaped like a great pyramid or spherical? What if you could design a whole community?  Using imagination and thoughtfulness, this week’s theme allows for creativity as well as learning about some famous buildings and structures from around the world.

Week 4: July 29-Aug 2  Superhero Extravaganza
This week will be simply Marvelous!  That doesn’t mean we won’t explore some of DC’s most popular characters as well!  Comic strip and costume design will be part of the fun this week as we determine which superpowers really are the greatest.

Week 5: August 5-9  Adventurous Authors
Calling all readers, writers, and illustrators! Let the creative juices flow as we collaborate on storytelling, book-making, and illustration techniques from some of the most beloved children’s books of our time.  Eric Carle, Leo Lionni, Mo Willems and JK Rowling are just a few examples, but feel free to bring your own ideas to share!

Week 6: August 12-16  Mad Science
Using our senses and the scientific process, this week will be full of experiments.  What happens when you microwave soap? There’s only one way to find out! Bring your curiosity and get ready to find out answers to some wacky questions.
