THIS YEAR’S WEEKLY THEMES:

Week 1 (July 8-12) Animal Adventures and Movement

Explore your wild side in a week of animal explorations! Build animal habitats, create animal costumes, and act out animal stories. We’ll slither, stalk, swim, and swoop our way through the week together. Specialist Maddie Hopfield (professional dancer and CCS teacher in the Oak room) will help us create new adventures in movement and dance!

Week 2 (July 15-19) Fantasy Week with Light & Shadow Explorations

Let your imagination run wild! We’ll be creating whole worlds this week with interactive games, costume-making, and dramatic play. Take a rocket to outer space and explore the deepest oceans—who can say what stories we’ll make together? Specialist Laura Graham (CCS teacher in the Redbud room) leads a week-long exploration of shadow & light, reflection & projection, transparency, prisms, and more!

Week 3 (July 22-26) Mud and Clay!

If you love mud, this is the week for you! Indoors we’ll explore the wonders of clay as we make sculptures and other artwork in the original “hands-on” material, with specialist Laura Graham (CCS teacher in the Redbud room)! Outdoors we will make mud, play with mud, paint with mud, and even build with mud. Exciting messes are guaranteed!

Week 4 (July 29-August 2) Kids in the Kitchen: Schoolyard Gardening and Cooking

Budding green thumbs come join us in the garden and kitchen! We will tend to and harvest veggies and herbs and turn them into delicious meals. In this gardening and cooking camp, kids will learn how to care for a plant from growing to harvesting, then they’ll take the day’s produce and make nutritious, delicious snacks and meals. Specialist Seth Chernyak (baker and CCS teacher in the Redbud room) will be on hand to guide kids as they experience ingredients and develop cooking skills.

Week 5 (August 5-9) Kids in the Kitchen: Baking Boot Camp

Ready your rollers, warm up your beaters and roll up your sleeves! Muffins, cookies, and breads—campers will be measuring, scooping, cutting, kneading, and eating as we practice techniques and identify flavors. Come join us as we delve into this delicious and artful world! Specialist Seth Chernyak (baker and CCS teacher in the Redbud room) will lead cooking education each morning.
