School-Age Summer Camp Programs

North Campus Children's Center School-Age Summer Camp

Please join us for a Reggio-inspired summer experience where we plan our weekly experiences according to the questions and ideas of the children. These threads of inquiry will be the basis of rich exploration, utilizing the languages of visual art media, movement, and nature. Field trips and swimming will be among our weekly experiences. Children will have a joyful summer experience, while engaging in opportunities that support deep thinking and creativity. Week-long day camp sessions run from June 20 through August 26, 2016. Camp hours: 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with 8:00 early care available. Ages served: 6-9 years old.
