Do you remember when children spent every moment of summer outside? Studies show that this current generation spends about half as much time outside as their parents, but outdoor time is crucial to development! Time outdoors builds confidence and problem solving skills. It promotes creativity and imagination through unstructured play. As children bond with the outdoors they develop a responsible view of the environment. Outdoor time stimulates the senses, which can lead to the development of stronger neural pathways and a deeper sense of understanding. It gets children moving, inspires wonder and reduces stress and fatigue.
A Child’s Place Summer Camp is a Reggio Emilia-inspired school that believes that Children Are Born Curious! Ⓡ . Here children ages 3 1/2 to 9 years old spend most of their time in the camp’s idyllic back yard – a hidden gem in the heart of Lincroft – which offers a space to run and play games and marvel at the wonders of nature while participating in imaginative play and simply relax with friends under shady trees. Campers enjoy their favorite activities including arts and crafts, digging in the mud hole and theme weeks like ACP Ninja Warrior, Culinary Adventures, Project Runway, Regatta Races, Amazing Architects and Full STEAM Ahead!
Children are offered a healthy daily snack and they also use the on-site, outdoor pool every day. Weak and non-swimmers receive individual attention from counselors who go in the pool with them. A Red Cross-certified lifeguard is always present. All aspects of camp life are supervised by senior members of A Child’s Place staff. Six weeks of camp begin 6/19/2023. Full day (9-3) or half day (9-12) options.
Children are eager learners, love to participate, and are great discoverers. It is important children are allowed to explore, have the opportunity to build confidence in their own ideas and develop their own skills. At Colorin Spanish Program, we assist in cultivating positive behavior, help bring out the best in your child, and prepare them to be lifelong learners. Camp dates are 07/10 – 08/18. Located at “Just Play” 1610 Route 35 S. Suite 16 “Orchard Plaza” Oakhurst, NJ for ages 2-5 years old.
