The Berry Patch presents...
Camp Sizzle Berry 2017

Registration due by April 1, 2017

Session 1: Little Book Worms (June 6,7, 8 & 13, 14, 15):

Crawl into the pages and explore the wonderful world of books and their famous authors. This fun-filled class will focus on six specific children’s authors such as Dr. Suess, Eric Carle and Jan Brett. Exciting activities and crafts are planned to make children feel like they are being transported daily into a magical storybook. We will also incorporate the art of story telling through songs and puppets. This class will engage and excite your little ones to develop a lifetime passion for books!

Session 2: Island Adventures (June 20, 21, 22 & 27, 28, 29):

Ahoy matey! As sailors, be prepared to build a ship and set sail through uncharted waters. Or would you like to swim with playful dolphins as a beautiful mermaid? You will feel like you’ve traveled through time to an island paradise, where the sun is shining and anything is possible. Think of Peter Pan, Swiss Family Robinson, magical mermaids, exotic animals, treasure maps and, of course, swashbuckling pirates. We will have all kinds of adventures through stories, games, play acting and crafts. Children will enjoy a scavenger hunt to find buried treasure to please even the surliest little pirates.

Session 3: Happy Campers (July 11, 12,13 & 18,19, 20):

Tent, flashlights, sleeping bags, big smiles . . . check. The Berry Patch proudly introduces the great outdoors to campers/children through camping, gardening, play and song. Children love to explore nature, and your child will be delighted to learn about things that grow and things that are gross. We will get our hands dirty planting seeds and playing with creepy crawlers. Whether we are experimenting with water, learning about things that fly, or singing campfire songs, your little camper is sure to get into the spirit of outdoor adventure. We will also incorporate some important lessons on safety and receive helpful tips from a surprise guest. Get your binoculars ready, your backpacks set, and a green thumb is GO!

Session 4: Imagination Creations (July 25, 26, 27 & Aug. 1, 2, 3):

Boxes, Strings and Things . . . Oh, My! We love old fashioned play at the Berry Patch. Do you remember getting messy with paint, taking things apart and playing in a fort that you built with friends? This exciting class will get those little creative juices flowing through art and games. Kids will love our “Big Mystery Box” guessing game and will explore different mediums to create beautiful and unique art with everyday items. Get back to the basics! Children will learn the art of being creative through play and this camp session will give them plenty of ideas for fun the next time you have a “media time out”.

FRESHBerries: August 1-3 (Mommy and Me for Raspberries & Huckleberries)

Fun, play and happy days await you and your little one at Camp FRESHBERRIES! Our Mommy & Me class is your opportunity to familiarize yourself with The Berry Patch before fall. This class will be offered 3 mornings for those Raspberries and Huckleberries registered for fall 2017 and one parent or caregiver from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. Through play and song we will introduce your little one to circle time, story time and future classmates. We’ll explore our school with interactive field trips to the music room, playground and gymnasium. This is a great way to meet teachers, parents and get back-to-school parenting advice from the experts. We at Camp Sizzle Berry are committed to helping you and your toddler make the transition to school this fall in a fun and loving way.

JAMBERRIES: August 1-3 (Kindergarten Readiness)

Back-to-school is just around the corner and Camp JAMBERRIES is ready! In response to parents’ requests we are excited to offer a fun, interactive, JAM packed 3 days of learning to help transition your Pre-K student to Kindergarten. We will explore topics your child learned in Pre-K and take it to the next level to create confidence as they enter grade school. We will have parent education as part of this camp as well, so caregivers are encouraged to learn about this transition from the experts!
