Rainbow Camp Program

  • Week One, July 1st-5th Trash Art Week (No camp July 4th) . Do you have a budding artist who says “I need that for a project?” Do you have a child who loves to create and imagine? Then this is the week for that! We will be collecting and building all week long with found objects and recyclable trash. We will be making bottle cap art, wacky newspaper hats, amazing sculptures and structures, bedazzled clothing and more!!!
  • Week Two, July 8th-12th Drama Drama Drama- Let’s Put on a Show ….. Mini Theater. Mini Theatre starts with a story. Stories are full of action and fun characters. We will be pulling from favorites such as King Bidgood, Abiyoyo, Sun and the Moon, and Caps for Sale. Using made props, small bits of costumes and our imaginations we will act out a story with our own special flair. Often several children will will play one character or we will act out the story many times until every child has done all the parts they desire. Mini Theatre will be noisy, physical, and the all children will have plenty of room to take the lead.
  • Week Three, July 15th-19th Wilderness Week. Campers will participate in crafts and hikes. We will learn about nature and the world around us through hands on exploration of nature center habitats including ponds, woodlands and meadows. Activities will focus on letterboxing, geocaching, tree identifications and bird watching. We will finish out the week with a ‘camp-out’ in Prospect Park. Join us for songs and stories around the campfire as we ‘roast’ marshmallows on Friday!
  • Week Four, July 22nd-26th Get your Groove on- Dance Week!. Get ready to move to the beats as we dance through the week. We will try out some simple ballet, hip hop, modern, tap, jazz and salsa dance moves. From Square Dancing to Breakdancing we will be using dance as a means to communicate and tell our stories. Join us for our dance performances on Friday!
  • Week Five, July 29th- August 2nd Mad Scientist Week. Green Glowing liquids, strange objects flying through the air, mystery substances that change from solid to liquids in seconds. We will be making snow in the summer, tornados , and bubbles. A whole school science show wraps up the week.
  • Week Six, August 5th-August 9th Busker Carnival Week. A Funky combination of carnival, old fashion country fair, street performers and wild circus! Let’s run away! All week long we will be preparing for a parade, constructing street performer costumes and practicing our tricks. We will be crafting games and activities.
