Camp themes – Ages 2 to 4

Take a look at our themes. All themes include Art & Outdoors in some way!

July 8th – July 19th  Laughter & Happiness: How does a lion laugh? Have you ever had a chuckle milkshake? Our Laughter & Happiness theme creates positive synergy through social-emotional stories, games, and art. This week, we’ll explore different coping techniques through stories of laughter and partake in nature-based happiness discussions!

July 22nd – Aug 2nd The colorful Matisse (collages): This week we’ll use our fav book “How the Snail Found its Colors: The Art of Matisse” by Jeong-Yi Kee to draw inspiration from. We’ll build individual colleges, and a large community collage, with objects found in nature and other various materials.

Aug 5th – Aug 16th The Art & Science of Cooking: Cooking can be exhilarating and creative! We’ll get in touch with the five senses while learning the math and science that cooking entails. Our list of recipes includes playdough, ice cream, and apple doughnuts to name a few!

Aug 12th- Aug 16th BONUS Theme! Photography & light exploration: This theme will run simultaneously with our Cooking theme! Children will explore spatial awareness through light, shadows, and photography. Using art in various mediums, we’ll work on capturing light with gross and fine motor activities. Tools this week include a Canon Rebel, Instant cameras, colorful cellophane sheets, acrylic mirrors, and more.

8:00 – free play outdoors or indoors 
9:10 –  snack & lesson overview
9:40 – head outdoors for a trip or walk
12:20 – Sensory Enriched Lunch (outdoors when possible)
2:00 – Reflection hour/ Rest for our youngest campers
4:00 – Afternoon Snack & pick up
4:30 – Games/Themed lesson/additional movement
5:15 – Clean up and extended day pick up

Extended days are child-directed. Sample activities: social-emotional games, cooking, dancing, academic enrichment, or free play.

Hours: 8 AM – 4:30 PM Extended hours available (7:45am-5:30pm)

Trips will occur throughout the summer and will include visits to various places in the city. Trip locations are TBD. Past trips included events at piers around the city, mini-golf, new playgrounds with sand/water features, museums, Central/Riverside Parks, etc.

With Art-based play, the child is in control but takes hints from teachers. We will combine classic and creative art tools with natural outdoor materials, giving children a sense of discovery and empowerment. Each day is filled with mindfulness/yoga, art, and outdoor exploration!

Students leave with an awareness of their body, thoughts, feelings, and the world around them. This year we are including bi-weekly trips around our neighborhood & city. These trips incorporate the Reggio-Emilia approach to being a good citizen and neighbor.
