Weekly Activities

Science Mondays! Every Monday we will conduct a new experiment together and learn some of the many fascinating marvels of science. Experiments will include dancing raisins, liquid layers, water bottle rockets, and more.

Crafting and Coloring with Cortni!  Cortni will be leading arts and crafts each week, helping children develop an appreciation for art while improving the younger campers’ fine motor skills and focus.

Sports with Us: Summer Series! New sports will be taught every week by Zach, our game master. Through sports, children will gain motor and foundational skill development as they learn the game rules and the value of teamwork, all while promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.

Summer Homesteading! Each Homesteading time will begin with enjoyable weekly chores—refilling bird feeders, turning compost, weeding and watering.  A special focus will be emphasized at each lesson with students rotating through three stations—the hands-on station in the garden, the learning station in the Nature Center, and the craft station in the shaded area.
