Camp themes – Ages 2 to 7
Take a look at our 2022 bi-weekly themes to get a feel for what’s to come in 2023. Keep in mind that all themes include Art, Outdoors, and Mindfulness in some way!
June 27- July 8 Laughing Yoga & Happiness: How does a lion laugh? Have you ever had a chuckle milkshake? Laughing Yoga creates positive synergy around easy-to-do yoga poses. It also boosts your immune system! This week, we’ll explore different breathing techniques through laughter and partake in nature-based happiness discussions!
July 11 – July 22 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.
July 25 – Aug 5 The Art & Science of Cooking, Mindfully: 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! We’ll also learn how to eat mindfully, enjoy the textures, and create a heightened sense of awareness.
Aug 8 – 19 Photography & light exploration: 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, colorful cellophane sheets, acrylic mirrors, and more.
Aug 22 – Sept 2 Outdoor Studio (primarily outdoors): By now your little one is fully aware of the breath and the power of mindfulness. So, this week is packed with mindfulness and gratitude for nature. We’ll begin each day with a breathing exercise followed by a calming sensory activity. Next, we’ll create our very own “campsite” to spend most of our days playing in nature and enjoying the beauty around us!

Trips will occur throughout the summer and will include visits to various places in the city. Trip locations are TBD. 2022 trips included various events at piers around the city, mini-golf, new playgrounds w/ 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.
