Our Summer Camp 2021 at our NY campus has been nothing short of an educational, fun, immersive, and a joyous experience for campers of all ages and languages! Each 2-week session was theme-based and boy, did our staff outdo themselves with engaging the campers every session!
Session 1 kicked off summer with a Farm to Table theme. Children of all ages learned detailed information about farms, food production and plants and animals that contribute to our life cycle. Age-appropriate activities included art projects, planting and harvesting, food preparation and cooking activities! A visit from a small animal farm was a big highlight giving the campers a chance to see all kinds of creatures.
Session 2 moved us into The Mighty Jungle where we continued learning about different climates, habitats of native animals, and vegetation that originated in jungles around the world. Both our Mandarin and Spanish students fully immersed in language instruction with fun activities and plenty of outdoor time to enjoy these balmy summer days.
Session 3 was a Blast off into Space! Campers of all ages learned about space, planets, stars, the galaxy and so much more. They enjoyed a rocket blasting show in the nearby park and created amazing artworks in all different mediums representing the planets.
Our soccer and tennis campers enjoyed extensive court and field time testing their skills with highly trained instructors from Super Soccer Stars and Tennis Innovators.
Each session created memories of a lifetime, and while everyone went home exhausted at the end of each day, there were smiles and joy on everyone's faces.
