Summer Camp at Greenhouse
June 19-July 28
This summer, build onto your child’s natural curiosity and desire to explore and make sense of their world in an exciting and familiar setting. Join some of our faculty as we engage your child’s mind and body in scientific discovery, exploration of the natural world and physical, active play.
Science Studio: Regular visits to our Science Studio, designed and facilitated by Camp Director (and 3/4s Teacher) Paula Doerfel. Here, children will explore a broad collection of scientific materials and investigate small group hands-on activities intentionally designed to activate the curious and lively minds of our young scientists.
Creative Arts: Paint, sculpture or collage–whatever the medium, campers will have the time and tools to express their thoughts and ideas using interesting materials and participate in the creative process.
Outdoor Play, including water play: Whether it is playing in the mud kitchen in our small yard or visiting a neighborhood park, kids will have countless opportunity to be outside, moving their bodies, enjoying the summer fun.
Gardening: Regular visits to the Columbia Greenhouse Children’s Garden (on campus). Here our children participate in the growing process–from planting seeds to picking the–literal–fruits of their labor.
Community Excursions: Each session, an exciting adventure is planned for the senior campers. Past visits include trips to the Natural History Museum, puppet shows or musical performances in the park.
