Collage Day School Summer Camps
Consistent with the mission of Collage, our summer programming aims to cultivate a sense of wonder in each child and curiosity for the natural world. We inspire creativity, collaboration with others, and confidence to engage in new experiences.
Week 1 – Into the Wilderness (June 1 – June 4)
Calling all explorers! This week we will don our Fedora’s, a la Indiana Jones as we explore the nature around us. We’ll search for buried treasure, go on a scavenger hunt, plant our own flowers, make nature collages, and more!
Week 2 – Water Works (June 7 – June 11)
Wet and wacky water fun is the wave we’re surfing this week! It’s as Summer was meant to be. Slip-n-slides, water wars with tubes (instead of water guns), face painting, crafts, tie-dye…don’t forget the change of clothes!
Week 3 – Adventure Avengers (June 14 – June 18)
It’s time to save the day! This week our Super Hero’s will shine as we dive into the world of hero’s. We’ll create our own Super Hero costumes, including masks, shields, capes, and more…(I’m working on a closing line for this one.)
Week 4 – Astonishing Astronomers (June 21 – June 25)
We’re blasting into outer space! Ever wonder about the Moon, Stars, and the Sun in the sky? How many stars are up there? Why does the Sun go down at night and rise in the morning? These are some of the questions we’ll explore this week as we learn about our Solar System.
Week 5 – The Athlete in Me (June 28 – July 2)
On your mark…get set…GO! We’ll hit the ground running with an emphasis on fitness and fun. From ball games to relay races and a visit from My Gym. We’ll definitely have fun while nurturing the athlete in all of us!
Week 6 – The Community Around Us (July 6 – July 9)
This week we recognize and appreciate the things that make up our community. We’ll celebrate Independence Day with crafts and activities. I am also working to coordinate visits from our local government (St. John’s Sherriff, FD/EMS, and US Navy representatives. I’ll keep you posted on this one.) I am also planning a field trip to the Ft. Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine.
Week 7 – Deep Blue Sea (July 12 – July 16)
It’s all about the deep, blue sea this week. We’ll explore ocean life at 20,000 Leagues and enjoy some beach games and activities. We’ll discuss our local sea life and take a field trip to the St. Augustine Aquarium. We will also have a visit from Marineland on campus.
Week 8 – Amazing Artists (July 19 – July 23)
What is art? Is it painting? Sculpting? Collages? Crafts? YES, and so much more! Every week has its own set of unique crafts and this one is no different. This week we will explore a few famous artists within ourselves. We encourage all students to share their artistic talents with us this week as well.
Week 9 – Full STEAM Ahead (July 26 – July 30)
We’re closing out the Summer with a BANG as we look forward to the start of another fun year at Collage Day School! This week we will immerse ourselves in STEAM-related crafts
