Summer is a great time to give our littlest campers a chance to get outdoors for some fun in the sun! In addition to our academic curriculum provided by Funshine Express, ZooPhonics and Spanish through Play, we have several activities that get the kids up and moving, including weekly water play days, soccer lessons, yoga, and Jump Bunch kid fitness classes. We take the kids on field trips throughout the summer and bring special guests to the center for performances and classes. There are also several activities throughout the summer that families are invited to join in the fun!
Camp begins at 8:00 am each day with breakfast. After breakfast, campers head outside to the playground, or they participate in a special activity daily. We eat lunch around noon (Please note: free breakfast and lunch will be provided by DCPS for all campers this year. If you choose to send meals for your child, please label them with his or her name and ensure that they do not contain any shellfish or nuts). The three and four year-olds have story time and then nap/quiet time from 1:15-3:00 pm and the five year-olds will have group activities during rest time (unless the family requests nap time). Following afternoon snack (provided daily by Polite Piggy’s), we have more enrichment activities and outdoor playtime*.
*We do not go outside or on outdoor field trips during any heat advisories or days with poor air quality as advised by weather reporting stations, or when other weather conditions exist that are prohibitive with regards to our planned activity.
The “Big Kids” enjoy a summer program designed to keep their minds and bodies moving and grooving! Each week we have a focused theme that provides the kids exposure to a variety of academic, artistic and physical experiences. Whether they’re creating master works of art, designing their own buildings, starring in the hottest play in the city, or playing for the camp soccer championship–the possibilities are as endless as their imaginations. We provide the resources and encouragement to make sure that every camper has their best summer yet.
Please see below for a calendar of our special activities. In addition to the special classes, performances and field trips, the kids get plenty of time each day to relax and be with their friends in unstructured play time. There are also several activities that families can participate in, so please make plans to join in the fun!
