Through non-competitive activities we support the child’s natural curiosity and creativity. We utilize a variety of art and music as well as Montessori and Reggio Emelia techniques to provide the concrete experiences that are so necessary to learning during early childhood.
Elementary Before & After Care
We provide a safe escorted walk to and from Atholton Elementary school, homework time with guidance and support, an after-school snack, activities (yoga, organized games, outdoor play), Lego Land (take a tour!), arts & crafts, and focus on developing emotional intelligence. Our staff provides active listening after children's occasional stressful days.
We love our garden! Everything we use is organic; from our soil to our seeds. We love having our hands in the soil and eating what we grow. It is awesome to watch the children experience wonder and amazement as their hard work turns seeds into food!

Our Summer Programs
Our Fall educational program does not end when the school year ends but continues on through the summer! Two days a week are designated as water days. On those days the backyard is transformed into a mini-water park complete with sprinklers and sensory table. One day is reserved for centers or for a special activity (like cooking or a STEM project). Other days may be used for a nature walk or a trip to the playground. This time is followed by outside play time.
After our morning activities it is time for lunch followed by rest time.
One day, or more, a week we will have a picnic lunch outside (weather permitting).
Campers will participate in Soccer, Basketball, Kickball, Cooking Projects, Computer Time, STEM/STEAM activities, Lego Land, Martial Arts, and Music & Drumming.
Each afternoon, campers visit Atholton Swim Club for lunch and recreational swim.
Optional swim lessons are available at an additional fee through Atholton Swim Club during the beginning weeks of camp.
*Our counselors exceed county requirements, and are CPR and First Aid certified. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun atmosphere where campers can build upon existing skills, take on new challenges, and achieve personal growth.*
