Summer Camps 2018
June 4 – 8
How do we encourage children to be fit and healthy in a world filled with candy and video games? By making it fun! During this camp, children will start the day with an upbeat exercise session in the gym (think kid’s Jazzercise) followed by a healthy, yummy snack. Each day, we will be discussing with the children the hows and whys of being healthy inside and out. On Friday, we plan on having a fun obstacle course for the children to navigate.
June 11 – 15
3, 2, 1… Blastoff!
Suit up and strap in for an adventure in a galaxy far, far away. In this camp, children will learn the answers to their questions about space as they learn about planets, stars, black holes and supernovas. Fun outer space activities and snacks will make this camp out of this world!
Preschool will be closed the week of June 18 – 22.
VBS will be offered through the church.
June 25 – 29
Color my World
Our annual art camp is back by popular demand. In this camp, teachers will offer different art tools and materials for each child to make their own masterpieces. These developmentally appropriate art experiences will encourage children to enjoy the process of creating art and see themselves as the artists they truly are. On Friday, the children’s art work will be displayed in the highly-acclaimed St. John’s Preschool art show.
July 2 – 6
Save the good clothes for another week; children are going to get wet, messy and muddy in this four day camp! We will be making mud pies and rainbows, and learning all about water as we perform several science experiments. Even as they are having fun, the children will be exposed to scientific concepts such as estimation, prediction, classification and observation. We will finish off the week with a water play day on Friday. Please note the preschool will be closed Wednesday of this week in observance of the Fourth of July.
July 9 – 13
All About Books
Calling all future writers (and readers)! Our goal for this camp is to enhance children’s literacy skills by introducing different book genres, the parts of a book, what authors do, and storytelling techniques. Every day teachers will read a different classic book and offer an activity based on the story. Children will be given the opportunity to write, illustrate, and create their very own books to take home.
July 16 – 20
Moving and Grooving
For children who enjoy singing and dancing (and what child doesn’t?), here’s a fun opportunity for them to get their groove on! In this camp, children will enjoy music through singing and movement, learn about different musical genres and instruments, and create several musical instruments to take home. On Friday, we plan on having some karaoke fun with our wonderful music teacher, Ms. Barb.
