CITY COUNTRY DAY CAMPS
For campers currently in preschool - 5th ● Weekly, June 17 - July 26
In the tradition of progressive education at The Philadelphia School, campers will explore a variety of activities each day. We encourage curiosity through onsite challenges, build confidence through projects, expand campers’ worldview through storytelling, and empower them with opportunities to thrive throughout the day. We begin each day at The Philadelphia School, where we gather for Opening Circle. Campers greet one another, learn about the day to come, share their stories, and play games. Throughout the week, campers engage in art and exploration, sports and fitness activities, swimming, gardening, and a special adventure. All of our days end with Closing Circle, leaving campers excited for what’s to come and grateful for the fun they’ve had.
Seeds Day Camp: Young Inventors
Weekly, June 17 - July 26 ● campers currently in preschool & kindergarten
What will you invent this summer? At the TPS Young Inventors Summer Camp, kindergarten and preschoolers will learn about different inventors and transformative inventions throughout history while making inventions of their own! Necessity is surely a great mother of invention, but so is fun, curiosity, popsicles, and collaboration in the summertime with a big group of friends! What will we invent to keep cool outside? A never-before seen waterpark/aquatic obstacle course that also waters the plants in the garden....?!? What kind of recipes will we invent for tasty summer snacks? We will come up with our own creations in the classroom, kitchen, garden, and learn experientially about how inventors use a "growth mindset" to keep trying and trying, no matter how many times their invention doesn't work out the way they'd hoped. Come get inventive with us this summer at TPS!
