For July 5th through the 8th we will have Painting Camp.  Ms. Katie will be planning the painting camp with many different mediums to explore. 

On July 11th we will start Fiber Arts Camp.  We will be making beautiful wool flowers and weaving to make yarn trees.


I love watching the colors the children choose for their flowers.  This project is so wonderful for their development in so many ways.  The children love to roll the soapy balls of wool and create the flowers.  At the end of the craft we cut the balls open to reveal what color is inside.  In this project the children have to keep rolling to get a good end result.

Woodworking Camp starts on the 18th and Mr. Craig has some fun projects lined up.




Woodworking Camp is a great way for the children to practice their will development.  They use their hands to work the wood with sandpaper and then as they finish they are able to use a beeswax finish to make the wood shine with a warm glow. 

The week of July 25th is Fairy Gnome Camp.  We will continue with our circle Hey Diddle Diddle and our story about Mr.Jeremy Fisher the frog and his friends Mr Aldermen Ptulemy Tortoise and Sir Isaac Newton.  The children love that Mr. Jeremy Fisher has a butterfly sandwich for his lunch and that a trout spits him out because it doesn’t like the the taste of his Macintosh!



Our first summer camp starts May 31st and ends June 3rd.  Gardening Camp is a favorite for everyone. We are planting potatoes, greens, and carrots from seed. The vegetables and flowers the children started inside are growing quickly and will be planted outside during Garden Camp. We are singing songs about spring and planting.


We are building a beautiful herb and flower spiral.  We have also added two new garden beds in the children’s play yard.



We had a lot of soil and rocks to move and the children had a great time helping to move everything into place.



After we had everything in place we planted cilantro, African marigolds, borage and calendula.

Starting June 6 we will be doing Craft Camp.  Going along with our summer garden theme the children will be making robins in their nests, butterflies and caterpillars

Adventure camp starts Jun 13 and we will be adventuring. We plan on visiting the Sherrod elementary playground, Mat Su River Park, our beautiful little Dolphin Park, the wild land firefighters and Friday Fling.





Teddy Bear Picnic Camp starts on June 20th and we have a new bear pattern for the children to sew. 





During the last week in June we have Theater Camp from the 27th to July 1st.  The children love acting out the story and this summer they will be acting out Full Moon Fairy Ring, found in the Old Gnomes Adventures book.  The children practice very hard so make sure you come to see their production.
