Please Note: We will make EVERY effort to honor the themes listed below this summer; however, if we have learned anything, it is that flexibility is the key to success! Should a theme become difficult to execute well due to Covid-19 safety restrictions or unforeseen staffing changes, we reserve the right to alter the themes below in order to create the best-quality (and most fun) program for your child.
Week 1: Out of This World
June 6 - 10
Sarah Brooks, Katie Bockting, Tia Rogers

So get your lab coat, grab your science goggles, and let's get "up and atom" for science!

Water, water, everywhere! This week is all about exploring the cool things about water - what it can do, the creatures that live in it, and how we use it. Of course, no hands-on water week experience would be complete without getting a little (or a lot) wet!

Our bodies are amazing! Let’s learn about how they work and explore positive ways to celebrate, calm, challenge, and move our bodies through activities like zumba, yoga, pilates, and even meditation.
