4. Spend time with friends, both old and new
5. Be of service.
Join us for a week of summer bucket list fun! We will spend time together doing a variety of classic summer activities that touch upon all the categories above! We will spend a day doing crafts (tie-dye and beaded jewelry), a day hiking trails and visiting the playground in Cherokee Park, and a day playing games such as Clue, Trivial Pursuit, and cards. We will also spend a day catching up on Summer Reading/Summer Solutions (hey, you gotta do it, so might as well do it together), and engaging in an act of service. We will end our week with a “Movie and Smoothie, day, where we will learn how to make delicious smoothies and enjoy them while watching a movie together. Come one, come all!

 

 

Kindergarten Bridge

Kindergarten

*max. 12 students

This program is designed for campers entering Collegiate’s Kindergarten to introduce them to each other, the teachers, and the campus prior to the start of school. Each day our Kindergarten teachers will feature a different on-campus “field trip” which allows the new students to become more familiar with Collegiate’s layout and get a glimpse into the daily schedule. Students have the opportunity to practice age-appropriate reading, math, and fine motor skills, through a variety of educational activities and games. Our goal is to provide campers an opportunity to have a smooth transition and feel more at ease when the school year begins.
