A Week in Review

This week our D-E 360° Summer Connections Enrichment campers became Exquisite French Café Chefs, Amazing Actors, Funky Rhythm and Beat Drummers, Yoga Yogi Bears and so much more! Scholars embarked on courses that will help them build confidence and gain credit for future academic work.

A Day in The Life of a Summer Connections Camper

Adventures Week 1 Highlights

Adventures campers had a great week learning about our week’s “Habitats of the World” topic, “The Secret Lives of Bees”.  Each day campers learned about the world of bees through research, art, literature, and song.  Our trip to Greenwood Garden allowed us to view real beekeepers at work.

Discoveries Week 1 Highlights

Welcome to Discoveries! On our first day of camp, the Red, Yellow and Blue Group all came together as a family during our morning meeting.  Morning meeting is an engaging way to start each day, build a strong sense of community, and set children up for success socially and academically. The campers and teachers each greeted each other and shared information about our topic for the week, “The Secret Lives of Bees”.

Junior Campers Week 1 Highlights

The Junior Campers had fun meeting new friends this first week of camp! We enjoyed eating lunch like the “big kids” in the cafeteria, did a little moving & grooving and some yoga. On Wednesday we had water play. They LOVED playing in the sprinklers and the slip–and-slide. We even learned a little Spanish with Senora Harrison!
