Preschool Summer Camp

Helping Children Learn While Having Fun

Just because the school year is ending doesn’t mean children should stop learning! Ivybrook Academy is happy to offer our Preschool Summer Camp, a seasonal program with exciting themes that will excite your child and help them learn while having fun. This program is designed for children ages 2 – 6, and they will be split up into beginner, intermediate, and advanced groups. Each of our campuses may offer different camp weeks, so check with your local Ivybrook for campus-specific information.

Enrollment is now available! Please find our 2022 Summer Camp program offerings below:

We Can Build It

At this camp session, we will build just about anything, from small cottages to large skyscrapers. Our architects will design blueprints, lay foundations, and set their plans in motion. Wooden blocks and everyday materials will be transformed into elaborate cities filled with sound and motion. Put on your hard hat and tool belts and come to the “We Can Build It” camp.

Some of the activities we will participate in are:

· Molding, cutting, and shaping clay into freestanding homes

· Designing and building a chair that can support our weight

· Racing the clock as we team up with our friends to win the Tallest Tower Take Down Challenge

· Engineering structures as we build boats and test their buoyancy

Water Wonderland

Keep cool and have fun splashing around in water! Soggy games, water toys, and so much more await children. But beware, buried treasure and pirates await to be found on the high seas! We will also bring our water fun indoors to create paintings, scented art, and large murals. Some of the activities we will participate in are:

· Splishing and splashing as we transform our outdoor classroom into a water wonderland

· Conducting and documenting the results of our evaporation experiment

· Rescuing our classroom animals from their ice cages

· Mixing up and enjoying fruity frozen popsicles

Scientific Discoveries

This fun week of Scientific Discoveries includes observing, researching, and innovating! Your child will get to work in our science lab creating hypotheses and testing their theories as they discover gravity, motion, and more! Children’s imaginations will soar as they participate in hands-on investigations that will help them learn just how fun science can be! The following are just some of the activities we will participate in this week:

· Testing which items sink or float

· Understanding the laws of attraction using magnets

· Documenting what happens when an acid and base mix

· Watching water walk

Backyard Camping Adventures

Huddle around the campfire as we roast marshmallows and watch for shooting stars. Our campers will use their imaginations as they travel to the mountains to experience the great outdoors. They will take nature hikes, go “fishing”, and explore lessons in botany. Using a compass and map, we will go on a bear hunt, search for small insects and meet adorable woodland creatures. Look into our tents and you will find many smiling faces! Some of the activities we will participate in are:

· Building and learning how to use a compass to guide us on our adventures

· Selecting and using ingredients to make beautiful bird feeders

· Creatively painting our hiking sticks

· Watching in awe as we go on a bear hunt

It’s a Jungle Out There

Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my! Travel to the jungles of Africa where the animals run free! Slithering snakes and swinging monkeys will bound through the classroom. We will explore the jungle as we learn about these unique animals through games, poems, and colorful art projects. Be on the lookout as your child will bring home roaring lions, fast cheetahs, and trumpeting elephants.

Some of the activities we will participate in are:

· Calling upon our artistic skills as we create unique snakeskin designs

· Documenting the sights and sounds of our adventures in our Jungle Journal

· Using our green thumbs to dig, plant, and water our terrific terrariums

· Designing our own safari hats, backpacks, and binoculars

Junior astronauts will create their own spacesuits and telescopes and explore the great constellations in our sky. We will take voyages to uncover life on other planets and maybe even discover a glow-in-the-dark asteroid. Some of the activities we will participate in are:

· Testing the power of carbon dioxide to carry our rocket ships to outer space

· Studying the makeup of cosmic constellations
