2013 SUMMER DAY CAMP WEEKLY THEMES:
Week 1: GEARS GO ROUND (JUNE 17-21)
Let’s set the fun in motion with a week filled with wheels! Your child is invited to bring in their bicycles, roller blades, or scooters so we can trek our way to Seward Park and continue our annual tradition. Field trips this week include trips to Seward and Jefferson Park for riding adventures.
Week 2: GREEN THUMB (JUNE 24-28)
This week will be focused on Healthy foods and Gardening! Plan on working in our raised bed gardens, learn about local farms and eat yummy, nutritious foods. Field trips will include a Pike Place Market visit and a walking tour of local P-Patches for unique planting ideas.
Week 3: ANIMALS IN ACTION (JULY 1-3 & 5; CLOSED JULY 4)
A visit to the zoo and the aquarium in the same week, WOW! In between will be our popular Stuffed Animal Veterinary Day where the kiddos bring in their favorite stuffed animal and fix all their problems with bandages, band aids and TLC.
Week 4: THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE (JULY 8-12)
Summer in Seattle must include as much water as possible! This week we will ride the Bainbridge Island Ferry in search of the perfect ice cream cone, go swimming at Mt. Baker Beach, and compete in the Kids Co Sand Castle Competition.

Bring your walking shoes and adventure packs this week! We’ll go on a hike through the woods in Seward Park to collect artifacts for our hand-made dream catchers, embark upon scavenger hunts in Mt. Baker Park, and tromp through the University of Washington in search of the perfect viewpoint of Mt. Rainier.

Moving bodies and moving machines is the focus this week with a visit to the Museum of Flight and a trip to Seattle Center, trips that will include rides on both the Light Rail and the Monorail!

We live in a very unique and rich community, so let’s get out there and help our neighbors!
