Little Oak Montessori School is proud to present a dynamic and fun summer camp open to the entire Columbia Gorge community this year! This summer 2019, we’re offering four weeks of camp facilitated by Dragonfly Guide Jillian Maeve Schneider and Dragonfly Assistant Jenna Anderson.
Each week will center around a theme to guide our imaginative play and expression. We’ll also be sure to include plenty of time gardening, going on nature walks, running through sprinklers, making our own healthy snacks and listening to stories under the shade of our majestic cedar tree. Check out our themes and dates below to get a sense of what we’re offering.
*Children 2.5 to 3 years old are invited for half day camps, M-Th 8:30 to 12:30 pm.
Children 4 to 6 years old are invited for the full day camp, M-Th 8:30 to 3:30 pm.
*Prerequisites: 2.5 years old and potty trained
We’ll cap each camp at 20 children, so sign up today!
Pollinator Planet ~ July 8-11
Come fly away with us as we learn about the enchanting world of butterflies, local birds, busy bees and other winged pollinators in our garden. We will create mason bee habitats, create wildflower seed bombs and learn ways we can help pollinators thrive in our own backyard!
Moovin’ & Groovin’ ~ July 15-18
Be inspired by sounds of music from around the world. We will learn about various world cultures and the instruments and costumes people make as we dance to the rhythm of the music! A different continent will inspire us each day as we make our own instruments and clay sculptures. New dance moves will dazzle you!
Art in the Yard ~ July 22-25
Calling all natural artists! Inspired by nature’s offerings, we will weave the land into artistic creations. Inspired by land-based artists, we’ll create ephemeral works of beauty and document each with photographs. We’ll experiment with natural dyes and clay based creations. In a class where we gain inspiration from our environment, the sky’s the limit!
Puppet Palooza ~ July 29-August 1
Stories draw us in and fill our imaginations with wonder. We will learn the art of storytelling and create our very own puppets to help tell our tales! We’ll learn several simple, do-it-yourself techniques for upcycled puppet-making. Giggles abound as we perform for one another, setting the stage for creative hilarity.
