Ravens Summer Day Camp 2021

Ravens Day Camp is the next logical step in the progression. Rising 3rd, 4th and 5th grade campers have extra choices as they experience the outdoors daily, learn through nature exploration, STEM, music, dance, art, sports, reading time, swimming, field trips, and carefully conceived, self-directed play. These older campers get to choose a weekly project to work on, as well as their afternoon activities. They will also take a unique field trip (sometimes more than one!) each week. We didn’t get to run the Ravens camp last summer but are delighted to offer it in 2021!

The activities of each week are tied to a unique, exciting theme, are led by qualified teachers, and are assisted by energetic, young camp counselors. A portion of the day will include whole group activities, while other times will allow students to choose between several great activity options. If the pandemic has subsided enough, each week’s program will include an afternoon visit to the pool. On pool days, there will also be an alternate activity for non-swimmers. Under pandemic restrictions, Pool Day becomes Water Games Day here on campus. Either way we have a great time cooling off on Fridays.

Before and After Care available at registration.
