Summer camps with Safari Kid

Preschool – JK

Preschool through Junior Kindergarten campers will celebrate summer through a series of themes.
=

Future Doctor's Week

This theme is all about doctors, nurses, and hospitals! As children build literacy, develop vocabulary, practice math concepts, and participate in dramatic play and movement activities, they also gain confidence in relation to their own medical experiences. Through songs, literature, music, sorting, organizing, rhyming, and more, children come to understand how and why doctors and nurses are important members of communities, helping people to stay healthy and to heal when they are sick.
=

Circus Theme Week

There is something fascinating about the circus. We create a fun environment with plenty of circus and carnival activities that kids can do. Kids love the animals, games, and fun that go along with the circus theme. We harness this love of the circus and channel it to laugh, play explore materials and create in our preschool classrooms!
=

Food Scientist Week

Children have fun learning about food science with our range of free games, fun experiments, science fair projects, interesting quizzes, amazing facts about food and more! Learn about vegetables, fruit, cooking, nutrition and all kinds of interesting food topics.
=

Puppet Theater Week

Using puppets for preschool learning activities helps to promote social and emotional development in preschoolers. Spending time on puppet play encourages children to express themselves in different ways while using their imagination and discovering important skills.
=

Four Seasons of Fun Week

We talk about the four seasons that make up a year and discuss and learn about the different kinds of weather we can experience in each season. To jumpstart our discussion about the seasons, we create a fun activity where children will learn new songs on the four seasons, do a fun craft project of the four seasons and even have physical games based on the four seasons. A fun filled week with lot of learning happening.
=

Summer Art Vibes Week

This week at our Arts Camp, creative kids thrive! With top notch instruction in art forms and techniques campers develop skills, try new activities, and most importantly, make lifelong friendships as they engage in collaborative art projects. Preschoolers love participating in activities such as Still Life Painting, fun Jewelry making and other attractive Arts and Craft Projects.
=

Science and Fiction Week

In this week we draw on fairy tales and story books to develop scientific thinking and enhance curiosity, inquiry, cooperative learning and testing hypothesis in our preschool classrooms. The goal of these activities is to allow children to become fluent in scientific methods. Scientific methods are wonderful life skills for preschoolers to possess.
=

Let's Celebrate Harmony Week

Harmony week is a celebration of diversity in our preschool classrooms. We teach children that the world is like a box of crayons. Can you imagine how dull the world will be if there was just one color? Each one is unique, but when we come together the picture is complete.
=

Sunny Summer Sensory Explorations Week

Sensory play encourages scientific processes because problems are solved using the five senses: sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. By stimulating the child's senses, we are helping their brain develop because when a sense is engaged, neural pathways are being created to assist with further learning in later years.
