Camp Descriptions


July 10th-14th - Story Spinning
We all have stories to tell. We love listening to them and telling our own stories as well! We will strengthen our imagination by inventing stories together, and learn simple steps on how to create our own individual stories. Along with making our own books, we will work on acting out our stories too! And ofcourse will have some good old summer fun, swimming, walks, resting in the shade, picnic lunches and popsicles!! Taught by Jessica Goodlin

July 17th- 21st - Outer Space
This week we’ll explore the cosmos! Come learn about the phases of the moon, the reason for the sun, what the heck gravity is, and conduct some other fun experiments along the way. Each camper will be given an observation notebook and a chance to become a real scientist! Taught by Damarah Barr-Smith.

July 24th-28th - Fairies and Magic
Throughout this week-long adventure, we will connect to our inner magic, as  well as the magic of nature! We will explore the world of magical creatures  through faerie tales, music, meditation, and time outdoors. We will connect  to the faeries and our own intuition while meditating with magical stones and  crafting flower essences. We will make faerie art and houses from natural and  recycled materials. Campers will express themselves with handmade faerie  wings, nature crowns, gnome hats, and wands. There will be plenty of time to  play, explore, and create amidst the beauty of nature! Taught by Brenda and Madeline Mooney  

July 31st-Aug 4th - A Pirate's Life for me
Ahoy, mateys! This week we’ll become pirates, creating our pirate alter-egos, creating costumes, and making treasure maps. We’ll have scavenger hunts, pirate games, and learn the dramatic history of real-world pirates. Taught by Damarah Barr-Smith.
