KIDS CO. AT GRAHAM HILL

Kids Co. at Graham Hill, located at Graham Hill Elementary, is a diverse place, where kids are able to explore and learn independently. There’s never a dull moment! We have staff that is dedicated and passionate to teach kids life skills that embrace their culture, educational values, fun fulfilling enrichment activities, and build unity amongst one another. In addition, we work hand and hand with our families, school administration, and community to ensure student safety and encourage them to succeed.

Summer Day Camp (scroll down for weekly themes)

Kids Co.'s Summer Camps are fun, flexible and educational. Your one stop shop for summer fun.

New themes, activities, and field trips to lots of exciting destinations each week.

  • Designed with working parents in mind, our week-long day camps run from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Camp activities run from 9 am to 4 pm.
  • Give yourself a break! Instead of shuttling your kids all over town to a new camp every week, choose one location all summer long.
  • Our camps are a great option for gap weeks in your kid’s summer line-up!
  • Licensed programs with professional staff who are trained in child/youth development, 1st Aid/CPR, and background checked.
  • We are excited to launch our new programs, Kids Co.’s Big Read and Summer Run for Fun.

Each day kids will dive into good books and track their progress, and collect Big Read “reading” tokens. Our dedication to daily reading helps mitigate "summer reading loss," a decline in children's reading development that can occur during summer vacation times when children are away from the classroom and not participating in formal literacy programs. Read more about it here.

 

Kids Co. is here to keep your kids active! Summer Run For Fun is a fun way to promote healthful living into our daily routine. Kids will earn “running shoes” tokens and track how far they’ve run, jogged, walked, or even skipped. Physical activity is vital for a child's development and lays the foundation for a healthy and active life. ... promoting healthy growth and development. helping to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. building strong bones and muscles. Read more about it here.

Kids Co. creates the best summer ever for your kids. We blend staff ideas, best practice, family feedback, and kid’s suggestions to create a summer your kids will not forget.

We can’t wait to spend the summer with you!
