Week one: Thailand “An en-Thai-rely awesome week”
For week one we will be going on a voyage through beautiful Thailand, exploring some traditional dishes, the Thai language, culture, and the geography. We will also dive into some Thai art work and technique. On Friday we will enjoy some delicious Thai food, and throughout the week we will play traditional Thai music for our children, as well as explore the art of Yoga, and meditation; a real Zen way 0to start off our summer camp, of course we will also explore the outside and have many activities that will go hand in hand with Thai outdoor culture.
Week two: Food & cooking “lettuce turnip the beet”
Parents, this week is going to be deliciously awesome! Our tiny chefs will be embarking upon the art of raw cooking from appetizers to desserts…each day we will introduce a fun and secret ingredient alongside a lesson on how to transform it into a three course meal, and a drink. Because the culinary field is a work of art within its own right, we will be discovering what it is like to make art out of food by using techniques such as sculpting, modifying, and science!
Week three: Italy “Buongiorno, let’s -Rome- around”
Pasta, pizza, cheese, and bread, what a scrumptious week ahead! This week we will learn about Italian style, and art. We will explore fashion and design elements, we will learn how to build our own pizza, and look into some traditional scarf dancing. We will talk about the language and the currency, as well as the traditions. Puppetry is a very popular art form in Italy, and Pinocchio is one of the most famous tales told; we will be watching the 1940 Disney movie and bringing to life our very own Pinocchio puppets through the use of mixed media.
Week four: Oceanography “Under the sea is where mermaids like to be”
This week is all about water, the weather will be nice and warm, and the kids will be ready to make a splash in our water-palooza week!

We will have many activities such as a “dirty car wash” “under the sea sensory bins” “garden soup” an “ice age bin” and SO much more. We will enjoy home-made organic frozen treats, and we will have a “freshly squeezed lemonade stand”. The Wonderland playground will transform into a waterpark resort, to ease the warm summer days!
