Littles, ages 3-5

We understand that for many of our littlest summer program participants, this may be their first time away from mom and dad since the pandemic started, and we are here to help them learn and practice developmentally appropriate social skills as well as some academic skills to get them ready for school in the fall. Our lead teachers have a wealth of experience and a gentle touch with our youngest children and will guide them through activities designed just for them.

Preschool Summer Program    PRESCHOOL REGISTRATION is CLOSED. 

 

Week 1 - Airplanes Week - We are starting the summer off flying! The children will be making planes, enjoying shaving cream clouds and reading books about flying and airplanes! Focus: science and sensory

Week 2 - Bugs and Creepy Crawlies - The children get to explore outside with magnifying glasses, looking for the smallest creature that live all around us. They will have gummy worm snacks, catch and count different bugs they find and get to use a ‘bug vacuum’! Focus: science, language and counting

Week 3 - Water Play - The weather will be getting hotter so out come the water tables and sprinklers! The children will paint the building with water and watch it evaporate, play in the water table inside and outside and explore the different ways water moves. Focus: movement of liquids and sensory

Week 4 - Art Discovery - Time to get messy with paint, sidewalk chalk and ‘spray paint’ (spray bottles)! Let's see what we can create! Focus: art exploration

CLOSED July 4-8

Week 5 - Beach and Boats - Coming back from a week of vacation, what better way than to explore the beach and things that float! The children will make a beach sensory bag, explore things that float and sink and use glue and sand to make beach artwork.

Focus: Sensory exploration and science

Week 6 - Exploring Nature - They looked for bugs, now they are going to discover things that grow outside and maybe grow a plant themselves! Focus: Science, counting, senses

Week 7 - Fishing and things in the Ocean - The children will learn about oysters and make an art project that looks like an oyster, fishing games with poles and magnets and Go Fish card games will be just some of the activities for this week. Focus: science, math concepts

Week 8 - We all Scream for Ice Cream! - Summer will finish up with everyone’s favorite, ice cream! The children will get to make some real ice cream with an ice cream maker, play games with pretend ice cream cones, and have a lot of fun with shaving cream pretending it is ice cream. Focus: sensory, language and math skills

Middles, ages 6-8   REGISTRATION is CLOSED. 

Week 1- Game Play- Our first week of SAIL will be dedicated to game play. Games help children learn social skills, empathy, teamwork, and gives children a means of connecting with their peers. We will learn how to play several board and card games such as checkers, gold fish, and monopoly. We will also take our game play outside with outdoor games and sport games such as tug-of-war, duck-duck-goose, and soccer. 

Week 2- Take it Outside- Playing outdoors provides children with countless learning opportunities. By taking learning out in nature we provide children with opportunities of discovery, creativity, and problem solving. Nature helps ground us and gives inquisitive minds tons to discover. We will take nature walks, have fun with scavenger hunts, use nature in crafts to make sun catchers, and use nature finds to paint with. 

Week 3-Flying High- During our third week in SAIL, we will be focused on flying things! We will use engineering and science to create paper airplanes as well as vinegar and baking soda bottle rockets. We will also attempt making and flying our own kites. These activities help children build critical thinking skills, teach problem solving skills, and allow children to make observations with science.

Week 4-Farm to Table- For farm to table week we will be cooking and planting! Children will learn where their food comes from and how to grow their own plants. Students will learn about a plant's life cycle while we plant our own flowers. We will also make snacks or small meals that incorporate mathematical and fine motor skills. (Foods that we make will be dependent on children's allergies.)

CLOSED July 4-8

Week 5 -Full STEAM Ahead- STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. During this week we will try our best to bring each subject into camp. We will explore science and mathematics with activities like an exploding volcano and making rubber eggs. We will also use engineering and technology to build race car tracks and other structures. Lastly, we will incorporate art into our projects to make them more appealing. 

Week 6-Far Out, Space Play- The children will learn about space during this week of SAIL. They will make their own space mobiles with the different planets. Children will also learn how to identify different constellations and learn their stories. We will also play glow in the dark games and make glow in the dark crafts. This week allows for a lot of imaginative play and helps develop social and critical thinking skills. 

Week 7-Going Green- This week focuses on being environmentally friendly. The children will learn self motivation and proactiveness, critical thinking skills, and how to live a healthy lifestyle. We will learn how to upcycle materials with arts and crafts, how to recycle, how to make some plant based treats, and calculate our carbon footprint. 

Week 8-All Around the World- Learning about people’s cultures and backgrounds presents children with a well-rounded world view and empathy for others. We will learn about different cultures through food tasting, craft making, music, and story sharing. We will be touching on different Native American, African, Asian and European cultures.
