Session 1: June 22 – June 26
Water fun is much more than water slides, wet sand, and pools. We will also tie dye, blend colors, build with colored ice, and experiment with what dissolves and what doesn’t, and what floats and what doesn’t.
Session 2*: June 29 – July 2
It’s All About the Food – Cooking & Science
*Session 2 is a four-day session because of the July 4th holiday. There will be no camp on Friday, July 3rd.
We’ll be scooping, measuring, rolling, and counting our way to tasty treats from around the world. While cooking is half the fun, the other half is getting to eat what we’ve created.
Session 3: July 6 – 10
Let’s Go Camping
Come pitch a tent, toast marshmallows, and sing silly camp songs. Fish in a pond, track and tame wild animals, and learn some constellations. No mosquitoes allowed!

Wanted: Mad Scientists
The world is full of mysteries when you’re in preschool. This week we’ll be exploring science – mixing potions, exploding volcanoes, and exploring the physical world.
Session 5: July 20 – 24
Music and Talent
Each day we will make and explore a different musical instrument. Do you (or a friend or family member) have a talent, musical instrument, or song you would like to share with us? We would love to include you in our circle!
Session 6: July 27 – July 31
Abracadabra – Making Magic
Presto chango! This week will be full of magical surprises and adventures. We’ll be creating spells and enchantments, hocus-pocus and amazing feats and illusions.
Session 7: Aug 3 – Aug 7
We’ll be getting the smocks out and letting the creativity loose. Paint, glue, stamps, found objects — kids will have a chance follow their inspiration, creating masterpieces showcasing their amazing imaginations.
Session 8: August 10 – 14
Build a pirate ship, walk the plank, make maps, uncover buried treasure, and act out your favorite pirate story during our magical week of fun.
