Highlights From Summer Camp 2023
Thank you to all our students, staff, and families who made Summer Camp 2023 a success! Campers were learning and playing their way through eight weeks of three exciting camp themes, made expressive art and music, shared experiences on the playground and in the water, and had tons of fun in the sun making new friendships.
Toddlers and Bridge Primary Camp (2s and 3s)
Our youngest campers unveiled many exciting things about the human body and explored the world around them through their senses. Our young campers discovered how our bodies resemble finely tuned machines that help us play, create art, learn, and more! For the final day of camp, the children had the remarkable opportunity to get up close with tortoises, chinchillas, wallabies, and a baby alligator with a visit from Eyes of the Wild, a rescue organization dedicated to providing forever homes for exotic animals.
Primary Camp (3s, 4s, 5s)
Our Primary campers studied food chains and learned about their diverse habitats and intricate ecosystems. Students had fun with crafts, music, and learning about geography, colors, nutrition, and more. Our Primary campers also attended the Eyes of the Wild visit. This event was a fitting conclusion to our exploration of animals and the intricate food web that connects them.
Elementary Camp (Elementary-age)
Last week's lab activities were educational but fun as campers got their hands gooey while figuring out how to apply the scientific method to formulate hands-on slime. Discussions on states of matter shed light on non-Newtonian fluids—not liquid or solid. For their Life Skills cooking class, they crafted sandwiches made from cucumber, fresh dill, sun butter, and organic strawberry preserves. Children went swimming daily (weather permitting), and our budding musicians transformed into an ensemble, playing drums and keyboards to the iconic "Seven Nation Army" song by the White Stripes. Enhancing their chess game was another popular favorite with assistance from Ms. Natasha from 101 Discoveries. Camp wrapped up its summer camp series with an on-site visit from Eyes of the Wild exotic animal rescue, a plant and animal scavenger hunt in Van Vorst Park (one of America's newest Level 1 arboretum), and their grand finale—the camper's talent show.
