Live Virtual Camp Adventures & Discoveries 2020

Age Range: Preschool – Grade 5

Weekly Price: $210

Our Live Virtual Camp Adventures & Discoveries program features theme-based live (Zoom) sessions daily from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM, with experienced educators, for our youngest participants. Afternoon independent “AnyTime” Activities are also included.

Sign up for one, two, three or all six weeks! We will examine what instills “greatness” each week, and every week is different. Our “Greatest of All Time”(GOAT) virtual explorations will follow this schedule:

  • WEEK 1:  Literature (novels and poetry) (July 6 – 10)
  • WEEK 2:  Justice (environmental and social justice) (July 13 – 17)
  • WEEK 3:  Science (engineering, innovation and design) (July 20 – 24)
  • WEEK 4:  History (Greatest of All Time: GOAT explorations) (July 27 – 31)
  • WEEK 5:  The Arts (creative expression in music, dance and visual arts) (August 3 – 7)
  • WEEK 6:  Sports (Summer Olympics of the past) (August 10 – 14)

With an abundance of hands-on learning activities, we will inspire curiosity about what it takes to be great. Our fun learning experiences will build foundations for literacy, creativity, and academic exploration. Equally important, our campers will master life lessons from their time here with us: 1) the meaning of cooperative work; 2) the impact of the past and how culture and technology have played roles in today’s world; and 3) a sense of wonder such that they develop a lasting appreciation of all our worlds – real and imagined.

Our Virtual Camp will be both synchronous (via Live Zoom sessions) and asynchronous (via “AnyTime” Activities) throughout our time together this summer. Each day will open and close with live sessions where we can introduce our day.  All participants will be invited weekly to share what they’ve created/experienced during the asynchronous activities in the Can Do Zone. We’ll also supply you with what you need through a weekly campus pickup. Families will be welcomed to campus for a drive-through, fun meet and greet with our D-E 360° Virtual Summer Connections 2020 team, as well as safe, small group orientations.

Online, we’ll keep some of our most treasured traditions, like Daily Sing-A-Longs, Closing Circles and Theme Thursdays (e.g. Pajama Day; Wacky Hat Day; Crazy Sock Day; Backwards Day; Favorite Character Day; Sports Jersey Day). Each week’s theme is also celebrated with special dress, events and/or programs.

**New! Live: Can Do Zone

(Price: FREE for registered campers, but advance sign-up required)

New! Children love to show off their learning.  In the Can Do Zone, we’re making fun space on Wednesday Afternoons for Adventures & Discoveries Campers and Subscribers to show off what they have accomplished.  It’s a bit of show and tell with an enthusiastic audience of Camp Staffers and fellow campers.  Sign-Ups are required for this FREE offering for registered campers.

  ***New! Academic Skills Classes

($195 for Three Weeks)                                                                  

When it comes to building academic skills, here’s what we know: engagement is the key! We are pleased to offer this year to our Summer Connections participants at the elementary level the opportunity to elect Academic Skills Classes in reading and writing. Students in grades 1-2 will strengthen their literacy by learning to put powerful thoughts into tiny packages as we read and write poetry together. For students in grades 3-4, we’ll use Scene Study (reading for the stage) to help children improve their reading fluency. We’ll have lots of fun in the process as students will engage  theatrical games and play scripts.

Scene Study Grades 3-4 Koteles Weeks 1-3 Tues, Thurs 1:45PM-2:15PM
Poet’s Workshop Grades 1-2 Koteles Weeks 1-3 Mon, Wed 1:45PM-2:15PM
