Weekday Nursery School is proud to announce the return of our June Bugs and Summer Camp Programs! Join us this summer for our “Summer Adventure Program”, a creative and enriching program for young children to enjoy the month of July among old friends and new. Throughout the day, campers will enjoy exciting, well-planned activities with daily games, songs, art and music led by established teachers.
Each week of camp is theme centered, energizing, and especially geared to the campers’ ages and interests. Children will participate in group time, enrichment time, snack, and outdoor time. Campers will enjoy daily water play as well as ample time on our amazing outdoor play space and our Nature Trail. Every Friday we will walk to Roosevelt Park and have pizza for snack when we return to Weekday. We are happy to provide a very flexible schedule for parents. You can choose days, weeks or even the entire month of July.
Please keep in mind that there is a 5-day minimum.
Weekday Summer Adventure is staffed with the same high quality teachers who work in our school during the school year. There will be a CPR and First Aid certified teacher on site at all times.
Days may be added throughout the summer if there is space available.
Potty training is required before enrolling your child.
We DO NOT allow any “swim diapers” during our water play.
Week 1: July 2-6 CLOSED Wednesday, July 4th: Radical Robots
Power up your engineering skills! Our campers will spend time exploring, imagining and constructing Robots with their favorite loose parts. Kids will enjoy the endless creative possibilities using many aspects of the STEAM curriculum. We will share ideas to create and build Robots large and small.
Week 2: July 9-13: Sink or Float?
Let’s explore and discover which things float or sink. Boats are fascinating. There is something surreal about leaving the land behind and traveling across the water. It is intriguing that all of that weight, which would otherwise sink to the bottom of the ocean, is floating because of the boat. By freely exploring with materials, children learn the scientific process. They make hypothesis about why something happens, and test out their own theories. We will be our own shipbuilders!!
Week 3: July 16-20: Super Hero In Training
Get ready for an adventure of heroic proportions while learning to be a superhero! Your heroes get strong and mighty in the gym, and build super-smarts exploring science experiments. Campers design their own super-logos, masks, and more to create the perfect superhero secret identity. Non-stop, action-packed fun for all! (Children are welcome to dress in their favorite Superhero costumes!) Superman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles… Don’t forget your capes and masks this week because we’ll be flying around fighting crime and using our super cool powers.
Week 4: July 23-27: Jurassic Journey
Let's take a trip back to the prehistoric world of dinosaurs! Children will be both the Paleontologist and a dinosaur! We will explore the prehistoric world dinosaurs lived in, different dinosaur types, dig for fossils and hunt for Dinosaur eggs! Watch out, your child will be ROARING with enthusiasm and knowledge!.
Week 5: July 29-August 3: Rainbows Rock
Enjoy the science of the rainbow as we mix up our own colorful palette. We will create art and experiment with colors all week. We will even have Tie Dye Tuesday!
