Join Elementary Summer Camp at The Centre at Conway

By July 8, 2019 July 26th, 2019 News

Hi Families!

We are so glad to pilot this elementary camp program! Our themes this summer will be Farm to Table & Children’s Literature. We will read books & do activities based on these themes every week. Your child will be learning about different products that come from farms including the variety of animals and what they provide and how everything makes it way to our grocery store and dining room table. We will also be studying children’s literature and get to understand authors and illustrators as we study the professionals and the different ways they approach stories and illustrations.

Throughout the day, your child will be doing activities that are not only fun, but learning activities as well. We will be reading, doing calendar & playing math games, cooking, doing science experiments, art projects, writing, and physical activity. We have some great field trips and summer experiences planned as well. We are so excited to spend the summer with your child and have some summer fun!

What does your child need for summer camp?

  • Please send your child in tennis shoes & socks everyday. We will have physical education and outside free play everyday.  The proper shoes will enable your child to participate safely & fully.
  • Please apply sunscreen to your child before they arrive at school.
  • Please send a blanket for rest & read time.   Your child may bring a blanket and travel size pillow for a rest & read time.  Please leave all toys and stuffed animals at home.
