Session 2   June 8-12 “GO Backyard BUGGY!” – Discover animals, insects, and birds that live right in our backyard.  Learn to identify animal tracks, make a bug habitat and create with elements in nature.  We will search deep in the yard for leaves, rocks, creepy crawlers and unique finds.  Don't forget your compass, binoculars and a magnifying glass so you can explore the sights and sounds of your very own backyard.

Session 3   June 15-19 “Little Picasso's Creative Art”   – We are going to explore the different painting techniques used by famous artists and have loads of fun making our own unique paintings and projects.  Finger painting, brush art, pointillism, and collage art are some of the techniques introduced.  At the end of the week your child will have an extraordinary art portfolio filled with their personal works inspired by Matisse, Monet, Picasso and Seurat.

Session 4   June 22- 26 “Boot Scootin' Country Fun” – Let's go to the rodeo, pan for gold, play horseshoes, and dress up as Cowboys and Cowgirls.  The children will enjoy making a western vest, cactus art and more.  We will round up stories, rhymes and activities that will make your little one shout "Yee-haw."  July 25th is National Cowboy Day and we'll be "Kickin' It Country Style" when we attend Cedarwood's MADD Camp one of a kind performance!

Session 5   July 6-10 “STEAM Dreamin' with LEGO” – We'll expand your child's imagination using Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, with a full week of creative, building fun using an array of multisensory media, including Legos, Magna tiles and more.  Let's build a summer of fun together!

Session 6   July 13-17   “Ocean Commotion” – Set sail to exciting island destinations around the world as we cruise to a new place each day.  Swimming, shuffleboard, disco dancing and games, all while exploring what's under the ocean.  See you aboard the SS MADD Ship when we attend Cedarwood's MADD CAMP performance.

Session 7    July 20-24  “ANIMAL PLANET” - How do animals do that?  Let's discover the world through the eyes of the animals.  We will pretend and learn how different creatures do what they do...spin a spider web, swim underwater,  and fly high into the sky.  Join us on our very own Camp K Animal Planet.
