Weekly Day Camp Themes
Week 1: July 5-9, 2021: The City Gardener
Spending time outdoors in our garden space, students will learn about the life cycle of plants, the basics of growing vegetables, how to sprout seeds, local pollinators, food facts about vegetables, and ways to regrow kitchen scraps. They can enjoy the fun of harvesting and tasting some of the vegetables that are already grown in the garden and even create garden-themed art.
Week 2: July 12-16, 2021: Exploring the Arts
Experimenting with different art mediums such as painting, sketching, sculpting and photography we’ll incorporate as many natural elements as possible into our projects and let student’s creativity run wild!
Week 3: July 19-23, 2021: Secret Agents in Training
Students will spring into a week of action as they solve daily mysteries to accomplish their mission. They will learn how to create secret ciphered messages and ways to encode and decode them (cryptography) through activities and action games. They will create their detective props and spend time geocaching in our neighbourhood.
Week 4: July 26-30, 2021: Creating with STEAM
Students will be using fun concepts from Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math every day in this exciting, hands-on week. Kids will be experimenting, designing and building a variety of creative projects including rockets launchers, Rube Goldberg, slime, circuits and their own inventions.
Week 5: August 3-6, 2021: Fit and Healthy
(NOTE: 4 days only, August 2 is a stat holiday)
By exploring various games students will learn about their own human bodies as they move and give us energy. We’ll also explore how healthy foods can build our strength and even experiment with smoothies and healthy snacks!
Week 6: August 9-13, 2021: Nature Adventure
Getting into nature every day, students will learn to appreciate and take care of nature while uncovering the wonders of the natural world through play, exploration, games and creating nature arts. Students will head to Deer Lake Park to learn about local birds, animals and fish, trees and plants. They will also learn how to identify plants they need to avoid and learn what to do in case they accidentally touch one.
Week 7: August 16-20, 2021: Teamwork at the Olympics
Using the habits and characteristics of a champion, this week is a fun way to get connected and learn about team building and cooperation at the Olympics. Whether totally sporty or barely active, kids will love this week that includes art and an opening and closing ceremony parade!
