Camp Sizzle Berry

Summer 2019

Sessions 1, 2, 3 and 4 are open to fully potty-trained children ages 3, 4, and 5.
(We define potty-trained as child is wearing underpants not pull-ups or diapers, is able to communicate when they need to go, and able to go independently.*)

FreshBerries camp is open to incoming Huckleberries and Raspberries.

Session I: Little Book Worms – June 4, 5, 6, & June 11, 12, 13

Crawl into the pages and explore the wonderful world of books and their famous authors.  This fun-filled class will focus on six specific children’s authors such as Dr. Suess, Eric Carle and Jan Brett.  Exciting activities and crafts are planned to make children feel like they are being transported daily into a magical storybook.  We will also incorporate the art of story-telling through songs and puppets.  This class will engage and excite your little ones to develop a lifetime passion for books!

Session 2: Happy Campers – June 18, 19, 20 & June 25, 26, 27

Tent, flashlights, sleeping bags, big smiles . . . check.  The Berry Patch proudly introduces the great outdoors to campers/children through camping, gardening, play and song.  Children love to explore nature, and your child will be delighted to learn about things that grow and things that are gross.  We will get our hands dirty planting seeds and playing with creepy crawlers.  Whether we are experimenting with water, learning about things that fly, or singing campfire songs, your little camper is sure to get into the spirit of outdoor adventure.  We will also incorporate some important lessons on safety and receive helpful tips from a surprise guest.  Get your binoculars ready, your backpacks set, and a green thumb is GO!

Session 3: Imagination Creations – July 9, 10, 11 & July 16, 17, 18

Boxes, Strings and Things . . . Oh, My!  We love old fashioned play at the Berry Patch.  Do you remember getting messy with paint, taking things apart and playing in a fort that you built with friends?  This exciting class will get those little creative juices flowing through art and games.  Kids will love our “Big Mystery Box” guessing game and will explore different mediums to create beautiful and unique art with everyday items.  Get back to the basics!  Children will learn the art of being creative through play and this camp session will give them plenty of ideas for fun the next time you have a “media time out”.

Session 4: Island Adventures –  July 23, 24, 25 (one week only)

Ahoy matey!  As sailors, be prepared to build a ship and set sail through uncharted waters.  Or would you like to swim with playful dolphins as a beautiful mermaid?  You will feel like you’ve traveled through time to an island paradise, where the sun is shining and anything is possible.  Think of Peter Pan, Swiss Family Robinson, magical mermaids, exotic animals, treasure maps and, of course, swashbuckling pirates.  We will have all kinds of adventures through stories, games, play acting and crafts.  Children will enjoy a scavenger hunt to find buried treasure to please even the surliest little pirates.

Fun and play await you and your little one at FRESHBERRIES Stay and Play for a Day Camp! Our Mommy & Me class is your opportunity to familiarize yourself with The Berry Patch before fall. This class will be offered on 3 separate mornings for Huckleberries and Raspberries who are registered for fall 2019 and one parent or caregiver. You may pick a day to come and play with your child from 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. in one of our Huckleberry classrooms.  Through play and song we will introduce your little one to circle time and story time. We’ll explore our school with interactive field trips to the music room, playground and gymnasium. This is a great way to meet teachers, other parents and get back-to-school parenting advice. We are committed to helping you and your toddler make the transition to school this fall in a fun and loving way, and encourage all of our youngest berries to join us for a morning this summer!

We will explore topics your child learned over the past year and take it to the next level to create confidence as they enter grade school. Your children will have time with a real live, Kindergarten teacher who will share about her classroom and answer questions our oldest berries have. There will also be a parent education component as part of this camp, so caregivers can learn about this transition from the experts!
