This program is a fun and exciting opportunity for children ages 2 to 6 years old. Your child will spend the summer with their friends and our fun loving staff as they participate in water play activities, arts and crafts, sports and games during our bi-weekly and weekly themed sessions. These sessions may include topics such as:
Hop on Pop
Jump into the world of Dr. Seuss and cause some mischief with The Cat in the Hat! Join us as we delve into the wild and wacky life of Horton, Thing One and Thing Two, Fox in Sox and Mr. Brown. We will read MANY books, "Hop on Pop" in a moon bounce and have fun creating our own versions of "lands of make believe". Mr. Brown can moo – can you??
Celebrate America and Travel the World
Does your child have a passport? No worries, they will create their very own as your child travel around the world – Norbeck Style. This is the final boarding call for those traveling to faraway lands and exotic destinations! We will bring back a favorite from previous summers when we have our International Food Fair. The children will have the chance to taste treats from various countries – You never know; your child might just find a new favorite food!
Does your child love to work with their hands? Are they Daddy's little handyman around the house? Well, now is your child’s chance to put their talents to work at camp! Everyone will receive a Contractor's License as permission to build, create, destroy and build again using various materials such as milk jugs, coffee cans, string, paint, pasta, etc. Find those tool belts and hard hats and "enter at your own risk" when you drive up to "Norbeck Under Construction!"
Movin' and Groovin'
Join the Conga line as we dance our way around Stage Norbeck! The children will spend this time joining the band as they make their own instruments and create their own funky beat! The spot light will shine bright on everyone as we learn basic dance steps and move to the groove! We'll explore different types of music and dance and experiment with the various sounds that instruments and our bodies can make!
TThis session will emphasize that dirt doesn't hurt! Some activities will include play dough, sand box play, whipped cream eating contests, shaving cream battles and mud pie making. Children will wear their oldest clothes to create the biggest mess ever. Let's get messy!!
