Do you have a pet lover in your family? Join us for a week of pet-inspired art and activities.

Campers will create worry pets and collage art based on their own pets (real or imagined!), make no-bake dog treats while practicing fine motor skills as they measure, scoop, and stir; and will learn about habitats while constructing one of their own.

Campers will make dioramas and utilize scientific reasoning skills, as well as, problem solving and teamwork to help their fairytale friends solve a number of dilemmas. Create a parachute to help Jack escape the giant, build a sturdy house for the three little pigs, help Rapunzel construct a pulley for items to travel to and from her tower, and more!

Culinary Kids

Where in the world does our food come from? During our Culinary Kids camp, campers will have the chance to explore geography and engage in dramatic play as we explore the journey of fruits and vegetables from the farm to our tables. Campers will practice financial literacy and math skills in our Market as they “purchase” ingredients to create their own recipes and nutritional meals and will also plant seeds to take home and practice the culinary arts. Learn how to spiralize veggies and fruits, make dressing, and grind spices with a local cooking expert!
