Greenwood Summer Camp 2018

Weekly from June 18–August 10 (8 weeks)

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

Greenwood's talented teachers 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. Camp Week Themes are subject to change.

details

  • Week ONE: Fairy and Gnome Homes | JUNE 18–22

On our walks, we will explore the magical Redwood Glen, where fairy and gnome homes are found. At the week's end, children will bring home a gnome or fairy home made from natural and found objects.  

  • Week Two: NATURE WAYS | June 25–JUNE 29   

Walking like a fox, bounding like a deer, jumping like a frog; children will explore and revel in the natural spots of Mill Valley. Mud, water, and natural objects will come home with your child. 

  • Week Three: Water Ways | July 2–6 (NO CAMP JULY 4)

We will spend the week creating wee boats out of wood and found objects.

  • Week Four: FURS, FINS, FLUKES | July 9–13

This week is all about creatures of the sea.  In circle time and games, your child will move like a seal, bark like a sea lion, and take home a lavender fish or sea creature keepsake. 

  • Week Five: MERMAID'S GARDEN | July 16–20

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. 

  • Week Six: Felted Soaps | July 23–27

The week will include nature walks and water play, where the children will create the perfect antidote to a day of play: wool felted soap made with brightly colored wool and natural soap. 

  • Week Seven: ELEMENTAL Garden | JULY 30–AUGUST 3  

Elemental beings are drawn to beautiful places made for them, especially by children. We will make small gardens by the week’s end to add to your home or yard with herbs, plants, natural and found objects.

  • Week EIGHT: BUTTERFLIES AND BUGS | AUGUST 6–10

What fairy doesn't invite and bugs into their summer garden? Join us to observe butterflies, bees, and ladybugs. Children will bring home an origami butterfly at the week's end.
