A PLAY-BASED EXPERIENCE OF SUMMER DISCOVERY

Summer Camp at SPS

Summer REACH IN-PERSON Camp
Beginning the week of June 28, we will host eight weeks of STEAM focused, play-based and activity driven summer fun for campers aged 3 – 5. We will get your children moving, thinking, and interacting with the world around them. Whether we’re exploring the mysteries of the stars, or digging through our ancient past, we plan to celebrate the season with plenty of outdoor time, and foster a love of learning, all while acclimating our youngest students to a school environment.

From crafts and games, to music and play, they will explore all the wonders of our solar system and beyond.

WEEK 2 (7/5 – 7/9): Fun with Fossils – Let’s jump in our REACH time machine and explore prehistoric earth. Discover dinosaurs, ancient flora and fauna, and get your hands dirty.

WEEK 4 (7/19- 7/23): Diving the Depths – Take a deep dive into the mysterious and exciting world of oceans, lakes and rivers. Campers will pore over marine life, get their hands and feet wet with water play, and learn all about how important water is to the body and the environment.
