KinderCamp Extended Care

KinderCamp Extended Care is available for 4-5 year olds Mon-Fri, 1:00pm-4:00pm and includes daily enrichments!  (3-year-old children needing extended care should sign up for our Preschool Summer Program.)

Extended Care Enrichments:

Monday: Amazing Athletes

Run, jump, skip and hop with us during this active, fun-filled sports oriented enrichment. From old favorites (freeze tag, red light/green light) to obstacle courses, this enrichment will cover it all!! Please be sure to send your child to camp in sneakers.

Tuesday: KinderCamp Art Gallery

Make some space on your walls! During this creative enrichment, you child will explore different art techniques and styles, and use of a wide array of mediums. Water colors, clay creations, and beaded jewelry are just some of the fun we have planned!

Wednesday: Everybody Dance Now

Move, groove, jump and jive with our own resident dance instructor, Olivia Sousa. Each week she will teach the children contemporary dance steps, as well as incorporating stretching, yoga, and a cool down. Dancing with the stars has nothing on us!

Thursday: Awesome Authors

Together we will read stories and create corresponding art work (think Dr. Seuss or Mo Willems). Some weeks, camper will also be writing and illustrating their own books to bring home and share with their family. You might just end up with a new favorite nighttime story ... written by your child!

Friday: Building Buddies

Do you know you don’t need a hammer and nails to build? You’ll be amazed at what your child can create with every day objects! By using a wide array of materials, your child will construct and bring home their own creations each week. (We heard this is how Frank Lloyd Wright got his start!)
