Summer Camp 2017

Camp is Cool!  


Parents, are you looking for some summer fun for your little ones?  

How about joining us for Camp at the Co-op?   

The Co-op provides children ages 2 ½ thru 6 with a first time camp experience that is both exciting and educational.  We offer six one-week sessions from June 20th to July 29th  with camp open daily from  9:00 am to 12:30 pm. 

Each week is based around a different inventive theme and gives children the chance to explore a new place, an aspect of nature or a cultural topic.  This year’s themes are:

  • Week 1  Gardening
  • Week 2  Beach
  • Week 3  Animals
  • Week 4  Eric Carle
  • Week 5  Bugs
  • Week 6 Wee Folk (Fairies)


The activities and crafts for each week are specifically geared to suit the theme, plus there are special activities for each session including dress-up day, movie day, yoga, music, splash day and pizza day!  And in keeping with the Co-op’s philosophy of learning through play, activities are hands-on and child-guided.

Parents choose Camp at the Co-op because it provides important school continuity for children over the summer and gives younger students a chance to explore our "big kid" Pre-K room.  Campers often befriend children from other classes while also interacting with their own classmates for extended, summertime play!  Plus, new friends are always welcome—even those not enrolled at the Co-op during the school year.

Back this year to run Camp at the Co-op to rave reviews from kids and parents alike is our school’s director and Pre-K teacher, Christi Porter Johnson.  Miss Christi lends her years of classroom expertise to ensure that this summertime experience is both fun and educational for our campers.

Returning as our lead counselor is Miss Mabelis Garcia, a full-time kindergarten teacher with a huge Co-op fan base.  Miss Mabelis holds dual certification in early childhood education and special education and is tons of fun at camp!

Register early! 

Open Registration for camp for Co-op families only will be held Friday, March 31st, 9:00-9:30am at school.
After March 31st, enrollment is open to new students outside of the Co-op.
