The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.

Summer Camp activities focus upon the wonders of nature and their relationship to land, air and water. Activities often include (but are not limited to), gardening, back yard water play in our mini water park. Including water table activities, sprinklers, slip n’ slide and other unique ways of getting wet!
We will enjoy walking field trips throughout this lovely little neighborhood as well as to the Highland Park library. Children will enjoy story telling, puppet shows, live music, art activities and healthy food preparation experiences. (fresh fruit ice pops, fruit smoothies and fruit parfaits are always popular)!
