Grades K-5

Summer 2021 Camps

Park Tudor's summer camps for kindergarten and elementary students are filled with fun, learning and friendship! Most camps are 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., and we have a great selection of afternoon camps for a full-day camp experience.

2021 K-5 Camps

Afternoon Camps
  • Athletics (All Dates)

  • Week 8: July 26-30

Dear Families,

You may have noticed that there are not the same variety of afternoon options as we typically offer in our program.  This is intentional, as we are working to keep student cohorts the same all day.   If the need to keep students in cohorts does indeed relax, we may then be able to offer more a la carte PM options.

There are many listings that offer camp for the full day (8:30-3:30pm) with a supervised lunch and recess time.

We appreciate your understanding!

Instructor: Hannah Sauce

With a basis of indigenous American heritage, stories and textiles, this art class focuses on the many traditions of Native American tribes through storytelling and crafts.  In this class, we will read, discuss and act out exciting stories that originate from indigenous tribes, and then make authentic and functional crafts related to the folklore and culture that the stories represent.  Some of the Native tribes include the Inuit, Micmac, Maliseet, Mohawk, Zuni and Hopi.  Campers will learn how to be "Keepers of the Earth" through vivid stories about how to care for the planet, use natural resources for functional art and demonstrate respect and stewardship for the Earth and all living things.  

For campers who choose to stay the whole day, we will become The Green Thumb Club after lunch.  Students will get to tap into their roots and discover their inner green thumb! These junior gardeners will learn about the importance of plants, the different types of plants, and how plants are involved in their everyday lives (i.e. food, products, and oxygen). With a little help from the teacher (and the sun), they will even learn how to propagate and grow their own seedlings! Students will get to choose from a variety of house plants, decorate pots and learn how to properly care for their plant to keep it alive and well all year long. Caring for a live plant is a big responsibility, so students will learn leadership skills like attentiveness, time management, compassion, accountability and respect. They will get to practice these skills at home so that they can keep their plant happy and healthy. At the end of the week, our new plant experts can take their new friend home and watch it grow. We will plant a seed in their hearts and grow a love for all things green. Pull out your best green thumb, join our gardening party and get ready for a plant-tastic time!
