Our summer camp program is open to all children who have completed Kindergarten through 12 years of age. Each summer we have a theme that runs through the summer which then influences the in-house activities. Our summer campers generally take 2-3 field trips per week including bowling, movies, skating, trips to the park and swimming.
We also have scheduled in-house field trips where different vendors bring a variety of activities to Tiger Land including water slides, snake shows, dinosaur shows, etc. While not involved in field trips, the children participate in a number of on-site activities including arts and craft projects, cooking projects, various sports, outdoor play time, games (board games, card games, etc.) and computer time.
The cooking projects are designed to introduce new and healthy foods to the childrens’ diets including many easy to grow vegetables and herbs that can be grown in home gardens.
The children also work on longer term, detailed corroborative art projects that take days/weeks to complete and often result in an art show at the end of the summer. This artwork is then displayed throughout the school until the following summer.
The school age children also organize an annual end of summer carnival for the younger kids and they get to “work” the games and food stations (sno-cones, popcorn, pickles, etc.). Leading up to the carnival, the school age children create poster boards, develop the rules for the games and determine the prize structure for each game. This is one of the most highly anticipated events each year.
Please call for a list of summer field trips. The list of field trips is usually available by May 1st of each year.
The School-age children are transported in 14 and 28 passenger, air-conditioned vans and buses that include seat belts in every seat.
