Activities

The e-learning day begins with getting the kids up and moving!  Outdoor walks are scheduled, if weather permits.  It is our goal to both entertain and engage the campers after their learning is complete for the day.

Campers may be able to visit playgrounds.  Social distancing activities may include: crafts, charades, pictionary, relay races (no contact), Guess Who, Writing/Story time, Themed Videos and discussions, science experiments, scavenger hunts, fitness/health activities.  We will utilize the outdoors as much as possible.
