Greenwood Summer Camp 2017

Weekly from June 19–August 11 (8 weeks)

Monday–Friday from 8:30 am–2:30 pm  • Ÿ Aftercare available until 6:00 pm

Greenwood's talented Preschool teachers, Caterina Cegin and Karla Wood, welcome children ages 3.5 to 6 to attend our summer camp. Children must have previously attended preschool to attend camp. Children enrolled at Greenwood School will receive priority registration. We welcome families who are new to Greenwood School to attend our fun, nurturing summer camp. Our mornings will be spent exploring the natural world around us at nearby Miller Creek Park, as well as many other beautiful spots in the area. We will focus our outdoor time in a variety of summer activities including gardening, water play, and exploration. The rhythm of our mornings will closely follow that of our regular early childhood day with seasonal songs, stories and crafts, and will include an organic snack each day.

Which fairy doesn't invite butterflies and bugs into their summer garden? Join us as we observe butterflies, bees and ladybugs. Children will bring home an origami butterfly at the week's end.  Led by Karla Wood, Mary Moore, and Leticia Curiel.

  • Week Three: MINDFULNESS AND MOVEMENT | July 3–7 (WED–FRI)

Through guided imagery such as butterflies, camels, and snakes, children will experience movement and yoga. This will cultivate tools and techniques for children to center themselves in their growing bodies. Led by Leticia Curiel and Mary Moore.

Children will come along on a seafaring adventure, as we create an imaginary land that a mermaid would be happy to call home. Children will craft their own simple mermaids or mermen to treasure.  Led by Caterina Cegin and Leticia Curiel.
