Summer Camp Recap: Groovin’ in the Garden

Summer Camp Recap is our seasonal segment featuring our summer camp programs. This is the place for camp parents to find pictures of their campers in action and see all the fun things we did all week. It’s also a great place for educators to pick up craft, story and lesson ideas for their own early childhood programs!

Groovin’ in the Garden teaches about nature through movement. Through simple breathing exercises, pantomime and dance, campers learned about plant life cycles, birds, amphibians, insects, mammals, weather and rainbows. They made bird masks, bug antennas and butterfly wings to wear as they danced. They also made bird feeders and decorated T-shirts with animal tracks. Throughout the week, campers learned about pollination, plant life cycles, weather and composting. They loved dancing with scarves and hunting for insects all week long!
