6 & 7 Program (ages 6 & 7)
Must be 6 by the start of their session, space is limited
Our 6 & 7 Program is designed for our youngest campers and offers a range of engaging and appropriate recreational learning opportunities so that each camper has a variety of experiences each day. Our well trained and energetic staff is there to guide our campers every step of the way.
This is a half day program, and includes lunch. Your child can be dropped off anytime between 8:15-8:30am and needs to be pick up at 1:00pm. Our team of counselors will be on hand to greet every camper and make sure they all feel welcome. The first order of the day is socializing. While working on small, self-selected activities, the campers are able to greet each other and get settled. The whole group then comes together to say hello, sing some silly songs, and hear the plans for the day. Next the children have an opportunity to work on some athletic fundamentals. This is facilitated by the counselors who make sure campers are safe, learn some basics, have fun, and demonstrate good sportsmanship. We emphasize non-competitive play to allow all levels to feel accomplished.
As the day begins to heat up we move to an indoor activity. First, we come together for a snack and a story. Next, the campers have a rotating schedule that includes drama, movement, and team-building. The campers are exposed to creative opportunities, age-appropriate gross motor challenges, and collaborative problem solving. They are put in small groups so everyone has equal chances to participate. The schedule of activities rotates each day so your child has the chance to enjoy all that is offered during the week. Campers may swim during the week, weather permitting.
Before lunch we come together as a large group again and the campers enjoy whole group games—both inside games requiring their thinking caps and outside games that allow them to move around. For lunch, the campers are assisted getting their food. They eat and socialize in small groups with a counselor.
The last stop of the day is art. The campers have a number of options using many mediums: paints, pastels, clay, building materials, drawing supplies and an opportunity to work on a special project with a counselor. The atmosphere is relaxed and productive. We end as a group with a good-bye song and look forward to the next day.
At Tabor Summer Camp your child will feel engaged, comfortable, safe, and excited by the variety of opportunities we offer.
