Greenwood Summer Camp 2019
Weekly from June 17 - August 9 (8 Weeks)
Monday - Friday | 8:30 - 2:30PM | Aftercare available until 6:00PM
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.
Week One: Let’s Make It and Get Messy | June 17 - 21
Making a mess can be creative, delicious and just plain fun. Kindergarten master teacher - Peggy Rock and the nurturing Greenwood Kindergarten team will lead this week of mess making, both indoors and out. Days start at Greenwood school but can involve mess making in the yard, Redwood Glen or at a local park.
Week Two: Buttons and Beads | June 24 - June 28
This week is also led by Peggy Rock and will be all about finding out how many interesting things we can do with buttons and beads. Children will have many creations to share with you each day!
Week Three: Treasure Island | July 1 - 3 (No Camp on July 4th or 5th) Camp is $240
Naturalist and 4th Grade Teacher Anna Tosick will lead the Greenwood Kindergarten team for the remaining five weeks of camp. This week will involve treasure map making, sea shanties, wee boat making and maybe a pirate or two.
Week Four: Lotions & Potions | July 8 - 12
Campers will do some magic brewing and herbal crafts in this fun week of potion making. They are guaranteed to make some fabulous gooey messes both indoors and out.
Week Five: Aloha Hawaii! | July 15 - 19
A fantasy trip to Hawaii involving songs and stories, Lei making and of course delicious Hawaiian food. Campers will be full of Aloha spirit at the end of each day.
Week Six: Nature Explorers | July 22 - 26
Walks, water play, discovery and nature creations will keep the campers busy, happy and mostly outdoors this week. You might find them jumping like a frog, muddy like a hippo and with pockets full of nature treasures at the end of each day.
Week Seven: Working in the Garden | July 29 - August 2
A fun and physical week of working in the garden with herbs, plants, natural and found objects. Campers will go looking for their green thumbs this week.
Week Eight: Birds and Beasts | August 5 - 9
Mill Valley parks and glens are full of birds and beasts and campers will learn how to see and find more of them as they become animal trackers. Of course, animal tracking allows for plenty of time playing in the woods!

A warm, organic snack will be provided mid-morning. Families provide a hearty lunch, water bottle, sunhat, and appropriate clothing layers.
