SUMMER CAMP 2021

Warning: Your child may have fun while learning something new at the Treehouse this summer! We take full responsibility if this happens and promise to let it happen summer after summer!


Week 1: Going Prehistoric

June 28th - July 2nd
Who roamed the earth? From dinosaurs to cave people - we'll learn all about what life was like in prehistoric times!


Week 2: Stand Up to Giants, Save the Future

July 6th- 9th (NOTE: this camp runs Tues- Fri)
You've heard it before...climate change, save the environment... but this week we will focus on the beauty of nature around us, the people trying to save it, and how we can help. We will put a new twist on all the information. Not the 'same old' recycling, but ideas for the future!


Week 3: The World IS Your Stage

July 12th-16th
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players...", (Shakespeare). Mere player? Or Spotlight Hog? We'll find out this week with a LOW STRESS, HIGH FUN slate of activities that put our imaginations into actions through improvisation and performance, movement and dancing, drumming, and music! Step out from the curtains and into the spotlight.


Week 4: Crime Scene Investigators

July 19th-23rd
Learn how the experts do it! We'll follow clues, solve "crimes", and learn the basics of forensic science!


Week 5: Random Acts of Kindness

July 26th -30th
Make a difference! This week's focus is on community service. Practicing empathy and gratitude, the kids will take the lead and brainstorm ideas, plan a short project, and give back to the community. Through compassion fueled activities we will do our part to make a difference.

Week 7: Patent Pending

August 9th-13th
We've come a long way since the prehistoric times we started with this summer! From famous inventors (including some myths about who really invented what!) and their famous inventions to becoming inventors and innovators ourselves, this week will set some gears in motion!


Week 8: Secret Mission

Coded messages, escape rooms, secret missions, mystery party challenges. Are you ready for your next mission? Teamwork and observational skills will be put to the test. But this team of special agents will have a blast as they complete their missions!


Week 9: You can be... a Graphic Artist!

August 23rd-27th

August 30th- September 3rd
