Summer Program

Daily life

The flow of the day will vary with the camp theme. We will explore concepts related to the weekly theme both indoors and outdoors. We ask that you send a backpack with changes of clothes and a lunch with ice packs. Our explorations and group decisions may take us on many adventures and it is important that your child's belonging can be contained and carried easily. We will provide hammocks for relaxation. These will be available as needed, but we will not enforce a rest period. We will do activities in the large group of 12 and also have times where we divide in small groups. Our projects will evolve in the Reggio way and deepen with the interests of the students.  We are very excited to have this first summer program in our new location and we look forward to sharing this magical place with you.
