We expect to have an agreement with the Raccoon Valley Swim Club for 1-2 days of Open Swim per week.  We are planning for Tuesdays and Thursdays most weeks.

We are revisiting several popular themes this year.  They have been updated to be fresh treatments of the topic(s).

Opening Week – June 20th – June 24th

We will be ready to go when school is over.  This week is about free play, crafts, and structured physical activities. The week ends with a blow-up activity in the play space (Blow up obstacle course, etc.)

Team Sports Week – June 27th – July 1st

We will teach the basics of team sports like (baseball/T-Ball, kickball, Soccer, volleyball/Nukum, badminton, Frisbee Golf)

An age/skill/experience appropriate focus on general rules, positions, strategies, and plenty of practice time to hone skills (gross and fine motor skills, hand/eye coordination, team work, sportsmanship etc.)

This week is perfect for both the seasoned sports veteran, and a child who might not have played team sports before.

Life’s a Picnic  – July 5th – July 8th

Outdoor lunch time and various picnic game favorites span this week which culminates in a big catered Picnic Lunch with Hotdog, Burgers etc. corn on the cob, and water ice dessert.

Time around the fire pit roasting marshmallow and telling of stories about “Charlie – the vanilla snipe”.

STEM Week (Flight, Geology, and Electricity)– July 11th – July 15th

Science plays a role in everyday life.  We will explore flight (Physics and Flight/Rocketry), Geology, and electricity with activities that are fun to do and teach key topics in basic science.  Each age group will explore flight with age appropriate activities.

The Older group (PVS) will build participate in an ESTES Rocket educational Curriculum.  They will learn about the forces involved in rocketry.  They will each build a rocket from a provided kit, and the group will launch them as part of our field trip to a local park.

The younger group (Grade K-3) will build simple paper and balsawood planes,  balloon powered helicopters and rockets, and fly them at our field trip.

Our field trip this week is to the Cape May Zoo.

Water Fun Week – Aug 22rd – Aug 26th

Water is a great part of our everyday life – it keeps life alive on our planet, powers our homes, cleans our clothes.   We use it for all kinds of sports and fun activities.

We will explore foods from around the world.  What foods are grown and raised throughout the United States and different parts of the world.   Campers will be encouraged to explain cultural foods and how they are prepared (Samples optional 🙂   We will look at how food arrives at our markets and take an age appropriate look at the “supply chain” we are all hearing so much about these days.
