WHAT: A summer camp learning experience for children.
WHY: Young children learn best when they become involved in their learning. Participants will be immersed into a thematic unit that includes hands-on learning activities focusing on mathematics, science, creative expression, reading, writing, art, and music. A different thematic unit will be explored each summer. Themes that have been offered are:
Trip to Japan
Candlesticks, Cornered Hats, and Colonists - a Study of Colonial America
In the Rainforest
: Children are eligible to attend who have just completed kindergarten, first grade, or second grade. Children from neighboring counties also have been welcomed to the program.
: Four sessions are offered, each a week long. Participants may choose the week that is most convenient for them.
The Kid Connections’ coordinator and teacher is Beth Smalley. Assisting her are two highly qualified aides who are early childhood education teachers or have experience working in early childhood classrooms.
