Seward Park Summer Day Camp 2013
2013 SUMMER DAY CAMP WEEKLY THEMES:
Week 1: TEAM KIDS CO. (JUNE 17-21)
Kids Co., Kids Co., let’s go! We’re starting the summer strong with team building games and activities. Students will get to know one another and develop skills for cooperation, positive attitudes, and gain a sense of community. Whether your child is outgoing or reserved, everyone will have an opportunity to express themselves in a welcoming environment.
Week 2: BOARD GAME MANIA (JUNE 24-28)
Bring your favorite board games and share them with summer camp friends. Students will go through the process of designing their own board games including concept, objective, and rules. We’ll make a visit to Blue Highway Games in Queen Anne and play with all the games they have to offer.
Week 3: KARATE KIDS (CO.) (JULY 1-3 & 5; CLOSED JULY 4)
A wise person once said, “Martial Arts is not about fighting; it’s about building character.” This week, we’ll explore self-control, meditation, sportsmanship, history and traditions. We’ll visit a local dojo and learn about the skills and discipline it takes to develop strong minds and bodies. Students will gain a worldview through exploring different types of martial arts.
Weeks 4 & 5: JUST WHEELIN' AROUND (JULY 8-19)
From bicycles to skateboards to scooters, we’re welcoming anything and everything that has wheels. We will have a ‘Sprocket Hero’ assembly hosted by Cascade Bicycle Club to get energized about bike safety. By the second week, students will design and build their own vehicles using whatever materials we can get our hands on. Bring your safety gear and prepare to test some speed records!
Week 6: BUGGIN' OUT (JULY 22-26)
This creepy crawly week will take us on a bug safari at the Bug Museum in downtown Seattle. We will also venture into the great outdoors to see all the amazing bugs we can find in our own backyard. Then we will take a look at extreme bugs around the world and get ideas for designing our own bugs.
Week 7: WATER WORLD (JULY 29-AUGUST 1; CLOSED AUGUST 2)
Water World Week will be a tsunami of fun. Field trips will include a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island and a trip to the Center for Wooden Boats. Back at the center, we will conduct science experiments with water and have some serious fun outside with the sprinkler. Water balloons, sponge tag, and ice block sledding are all part of the fun this week!
Week 8: HEROES & HEROINES OF SEATTLE (AUGUST 5-9)
While looking for inspiration in our very own city, students will discover what it means to be a hero or heroine. We will host guest visitors such as law enforcement officers, healthcare professionals, write letters to our heroes and heroines, and get hero training for body and mind.
Week 9: RECIPES FOR FOOD & FUN (AUGUST 12-16)
This week, kids will experiment in the kitchen with a little bit of everything. New tools, flavors, and ingredients will keep the week tantalizingly tasty as well as healthy. Homemade ice cream and sampling strange produce from around the world are just a couple reasons why this is a week you don’t want to miss.
Weeks 10 & 11: A RIPPLE IN TIME (AUGUST 19-29)
What will we be wearing in fifty years? How will we travel? What will music be like? Summer camp participants will become futurists to explore all of these questions and more. First, we’ll go back in time to learn about the many things that have changed. (The first mobile phone doesn’t seem very ‘mobile’ now!) This should inspire the students to think about what the future may hold. Perhaps a Kids Co. student will invent the future teletransporter!
