Week 1 (6/27-7/1): Ready, Set, Summer! 

Hooray!! Let’s get this camp thing started. The first week of summer will be packed full with opportunities for your child to get to know their awesome new camp friends and counselors, play some of their favorite camp games, get creative with classic camp crafts and enjoy our FIRST field trip. We’ll pack up and hit the side-walk for a walking field trip to Harbor Park and have a field day by the water.

Week 2 (7/4-7/8-no camp 7/4): Fascinating Forensics

Does your child have the skills to be a scientific sleuth? This is a week where mystery meets science! Your child will learn about the mysterious world of investigative science by exploring processes like DNA fingerprinting, creating footprint impressions and engaging in daily puzzles that will challenge their ability to think creatively. Campers’ new knowledge will be enriched with a trip to the Middletown Police AND Fire Stations to meet with and ask questions to some real-life forensic experts.

Week 3 (7/11-7/15): Awesome Athletes 

So many sports, so little time! This week your child will explore a variety of sports, games, and activities. From fitness games to competitive matches, this week will get your heart pumping and your body moving. To top it off we’ll enjoy a day at the ballpark to watch the New Britain Bees in action.

Week 4 (7/18-7/22): Magical, Mystical, Monstrous Fun!

Join us for a magical journey through the stories we love to share. Your child will explore the fantastical world of fantasy all week long and enjoy a performance from an amazing Talewise storyteller.

Week 5 (7/25-7/29): Zany Zoologists 

Lions, Tigers, and Bears, oh my! Let’s go wild this week at our Zany Zoologist camp that will feature games, crafts, and more about the animals in our world. Our zoologists in training will get an elephant’s weight of information to share with you at home. The Zoo will be coming to us for an up close and personal look at some of our favorite wild creatures!

Week 6 (8/1-8/5): Dive Into Deep Depths 

“The sea is the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence,” Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Take a deep dive at the Y for our Undersea Odyssey week where we will jump into a wide variety of ocean themed mindfulness, crafts, games, and so much more. We’ll sail ocean to ocean to learn about the wonderful creatures that dazzled the likes of Mr. Verne many years ago AND take a much anticipated trip to the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT.

Week 7 (8/8-8/12): All About Art

Let’s Van Gough explore the amazing world of Art! This week of summer enrichment camp will focus heavily on different artists, styles, and media used to make some of the most famous works of art in the world. We will also feature how art can be a method to express yourself when words are hard to come by. We can’t wait to see what your little Picassos will make!

Week 8 (8/15-8/19): Final Countdown! 

Can you believe this is it? Our final week of camp is here and it’s time to re-visit some favorite activities from our summer together and enjoy a visit from the traveling artists of Abrakadoodle. Your child will leave camp with a special project to take home and remember an amazing summer by!
