I hope everyone's Memorial Day Weekend was relaxing and fun!
June is the start of our “Summer Camp Fun," so here are a few of our activities this month:
*Rochester Hills Public Library Tour
*Bring your Bike to School Day and participation in the St. Jude bike-a-thon
And here are some reminders to make the most of the summer:
*Remember field trips are pay as you go, and remember bring in your camp T-shirt on field trip days! Also, try to only send in brown bag lunches on field trip days. Lunchboxes are often too bulky to transport en masse.
*Every Friday is Water Day! Remember to bring a towel and a bathing suit!
*Thursdays are Show and Tell Days!
*Label everything you bring in with your child’s first and last name! Mix-ups happen, but we should try to limit them as much as possible!
*Please provide at least one pair of walking shoes for your child(ren). Flip flops and sandals are cute, but not too safe.
*Remember to send in socks on bounce house days!
*Don’t hold it against us (or your kid) if things get a little messy, especially on mad scientist day!
Our goal this summer is to have fun and explore the world around us through our five senses while staying safe! We will be writing up summer camp journals on a weekly basis so you will be able to read and discover camp through your child’s eyes!
And, as a final update, we wanted to let you know that we have finally started our organic garden once again. If you would like to build on the knowledge the kids will be gaining at the Center, feel free to encourage gardening at home and ask your kids what they’ve learned about vegetation, what it takes for life to take hold, what gardening has taught them about food, and so on. Studies have shown that an early introduction to gardening helps children gain a deeper understanding of where their food comes from, as well as giving them some insight into the development of plant life, from seedling, to flower, to fruit.
