July 5 to 8: Down on the Farm
Howdy all! This week we will be learning to identify farm animals, their sounds and their jobs on the farm. We will learn about foods grown on the farm, the jobs of farmers, and the unique equipment and buildings on the farm. Highlight of the week: growing our own indoor garden where each child will plant their own bean stalk to take home.
July 12 to 15: Pirates
Ahoy Mateys! This is your Captain Daring Darlene Hook speaking! Welcome to Pirate week. This week we will explore the life of a pirate. We will navigate around with a compass, learn the parts of a pirate ship, speak like pirates, as well as come up with our own pirate names. So if you dare come onboard the pirate ship sign up this week!
July 19 to 22: Under the Sea
Be prepared to go deep sea diving so that we can discover all the creatures big and small that live in the vast ocean. Bring your snorkelling gear so we can dive and discover what is under the sea.
July 26 to 29: Camping
We must take ADVENTURES in order to know where we truly belong (this is where your adventure begins). We will be setting up camp as a team both indoors and outdoors. This will be a fun filled week of camp experiences, including assembling tents and learning camping songs.

A Lego© Extravaganza! Learn the history of brick building, learn construction techniques, create patterns with bricks and tell stories with mini-figures.

Aug. 23 to 26: Summer Olympics Camp
