Session 3 – June 22-26: Under Construction

Calling all construction workers!  The camp is in need of repair.  Can we do it?  Of course, we can, with just the right helpers and tools.  We will call on the help of those famous three little pigs this week to build a strong foundation for St. John’s.

 

Session 4 – June 29-July 3: Team USA

From track and field to badminton to golf, we support the USA! Campers will have their own Olympic events as we cheer our country onto the Gold this week.

 

Session 5 – July 6-10: The Wild World of Maurice Sendak

Join in the fun as Max’s dream comes to life! What would you look like as a Wild Thing?  What would you do if there were alligators all around? Sail with Max in his boat as you navigate through the many settings of Mr. Sendak’s stories.

 

Session 6 – July 13-17: Roaming the Rainforest

Grab your binoculars to explore the world of the rainforest.  Find out how a python dances, a dart frog climbs, and a toucan talks as we see what’s under that umbrella in the rainforest.

 

Session 7 – July 20-24: Calling All Cow Girls and Cow Boys

Mosey on down to the ranch this week as we ride the horses and lasso the bulls.  See what a rancher does so early in the morning, how to milk a cow, and what to do with all that sheep wool. 

 

Session 8 – July 27-31: To the Market We Will Go

Summertime is the best time of the year to try fresh fruits and vegetables.  Campers will do some planting on St. John’s Farm this week.  We will open up the St. John’s Farmers Market selling fruits and vegetables of every color of the rainbow.  Let's try some fresh and delicious recipes too!

 

Session 9 – Aug. 3-7: Suess Sense

Get to know your five senses Cat in the Hat style.  What do green eggs and ham taste like? What does it sound like when you chop down a truffella tree? Smell the apple. Feel the ooblek.  Look at the mess Thing 1 and Thing 2 made!  Dr. Seuss takes campers on a walk through their senses this week.

 

Session 10 – Aug 10-14: Out of This World!

Strap in, campers!  Let’s take a trip to space.  We will see the moon, the stars, and all the planets. Moonrock toss and searching for stars will be a few activities to do as we ride the spaceship.

 

Counselors
Many of our counselors are St. John's teachers who lead classrooms during the academic year. Other counselors are members of our before and aftercare staff who are on our campus throughout the year. 

 

Snacks and Lunch

Morning snack is provided for all campers. Full-day campers bring their own afternoon snack. All campers bring their own lunch. St. John's Parish Day School strives to be a nut-free environment - nut products are NOT permitted.
