D-E 360° Summer Connections’ Discoveries, Adventures and Junior Summer Day Camp programs are for students who will be entering Preschool (age 3) through Grade 4 in Fall (September) 2019.
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!
Adventures & Discoveries 2019 Theme
Our theme for the D-E 360° Summer Connections (SC) 2019 season is ️Keys: Opening Doorways to New Worlds. Campers in Preschool age 3 through Grade 4 in the Discoveries, Adventures, and Junior Summer Day Camp programs will ‘open doorways’ to experience and explore different worlds, as follows:
- WEEK 1: Our World Today (Transportation & Structures);
- WEEK 2: Our Natural World (Animals & Plants);
- WEEK 3: Our World Before (Prehistory, Dinosaurs, & Ancient Worlds);
- WEEK 4: Our Future World (Technology, Coding, & Innovation);
- WEEK 5: Our World Beyond (Space & Solar Systems); and
- WEEK 6: Our Fantasy World (Fairy Tales, Magic, & Myths).
With an abundance of hands-on learning activities as well as on-campus and off-campus field trips, we will inspire curiosity. 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.
