Discoveries and Adventures (Preschool – Grade 4)

D-E 360° Summer Connections’ Discoveries & Adventures and Junior Summer Day Camp programs are for students entering Preschool (age 3) through Grade 4 in Fall 2018.

Our programs offer age-appropriate activities that are carefully designed so that every child has a chance for observation and discovery. Academic courses include Math, Language Arts, and Science. We also believe that creative endeavors should be a part of a young child’s life. As a result, performing and visual arts like music, dancing, painting, and storytelling constantly find themselves in the curriculum. To balance these activities, physical exercise in the form of physical education and recess are also included in the schedule. Dedicated faculty and an animated staff complete the picture for the Lower School Programs by providing the children with a safe and fun atmosphere where children of all ages can grow.  Be sure to sign up for Aftercare when registering for camps, if it is needed. If you have an emergency drop-in to Aftercare, it will be charged with a higher rate of $50 per day.

NEW! This Summer 2018 we are excited to offer “Passports Around the World!”  Campers in our Discoveries and Adventures (Preschool – Grade 4) programs will learn about continents around the globe and explore what affects everyday life on Earth.   With an abundance of hands-on learning activities as well as on-campus and off-campus field trips, we will inspire curiosity about the world, build foundations for global literacy, and explore geography and culture. Equally important, our campers will master life lessons from their time here with us: 1) the meaning of cooperative work in a geographically diverse world; 2) the geography of past times and how geography has played roles in the evolution of people, their ideas, places and environments; and 3) a sense of wonder such that they develop a lasting appreciation for the natural world. “Passports Around the World!” Sub-themes by week will include:
