Childcare Network's Adventure Summer Camp is designed with fun and educational activities that will keep your child learning, exploring, and physically active during the summer months. Our STEAM-focused curriculum incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, and is designed to inspire curiosity and creative problem-solving.
Designed to provide a fun and exciting environment - while continuing to help them explore and discover the world around them - our kid's day camp provides your child the opportunity to participate in different weekly themes chock-full of engaging activities, educational field trips, and creative projects they get to do with their friends.
Each week, your child will meet a character from a popular children's adventure story who has been kicked out of their original home and placed in different settings throughout space and time. The mission each week is to travel to these faraway lands, find the characters, and help bring them back to their original stories. Hands-on activities, outdoor adventures, field trips, and more will take learning outside of the classroom!
Themed Summer Camp Curriculum
This summer, we will be offering 12 unique weekly programs!
Magic in Space — This mission's objective will be to learn all about outer space, including the concepts of an orbit, gravity, the atmosphere, and general knowledge of the solar system. In order to help the young wizard return to school, Young Achievers will build a rocket ship and explore the concepts of propulsion as they engineer their way back to Earth!
Castle Craft — This week the explorers will become architects and engineers as they build a castle. In the process of building, they will learn about center of gravity, balance, structural design, and planning so all of their creations are structurally sound and stand the test of time.
Train a T-Rex — Next the Young Achievers will travel to the Cretaceous Era to Train their T-Rex! In the process, they will to learn about the history of dinosaurs, their extinction, dig up fossils, and more. They will also explore computer science concepts like error detection. When training a T-Rex, there are certain steps you must follow. For example, we cannot train a dog to roll over until she knows how to sit and lay down first. If you go out of order, your dog will end up doing backflips instead! By understanding the order in which a program needs to run, your child will develop the building blocks for computational thinking and computer programming. Who knew animal training could be so technological?
Save the Amazon — Explorers will learn about endangered species and the causes that have pushed them towards extinction. The campers will choose a specific endangered animal, research its habitat, food, and life cycle, and then present the information in the form of a PSA video to spread the message to the world!
Wild Treasures — This mission will incorporate the use of computer programming and algorithms to help find buried treasure in the Wild West! How will they do this without a computer? Young Achievers will explore an even greater depth of computational thinking by "programming" directions. Children will plan out a path including which direction to walk, when to turn, and how many steps to take in each direction. Then, the superhero will have to follow these instructions as written. If their instructions are correct, he will find the buried treasure. If they are not, children will have to go back to the drawing board to readjust the path. Planning ahead and "coding" these instructions will teach the most fundamental concepts when it comes to computer science and engineering. Along the way, children will learn about frontier life and the culture of the Wild West.
Inventing Italy — While executing this exciting mission, children will be designing their own inventions, just as Leonardo Da Vinci did hundreds of years ago. Through an innovative blend of art, science, and engineering, children will solve real world problems using their wildest imaginations!
Imagine the Ice Age — During this mission students will learn about climate, weather, and different environments as they explore the Ice Age of 12,000 years ago. As they help the super-heroine survive the cold winter landscape, they will encounter the extinct animals and fascination habitats that ruled the world during the Ice Age.
Heart of the Ocean — Adventure Summer campers will help the king of Atlantis prevent one of the most famous disasters in American history - the sinking of the Titanic. Learning about buoyancy, density, and ocean life, children will use all the tools at their disposal to keep the Titanic afloat and save thousands of lives.
Green Triangle — This mission will have campers focused on investigating the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle! Legends tell us that this mysterious area is home to ship wrecks, plane crashes, and many other mysterious disappearances. If the legends are to be believed, Young Achievers are sure to find lots of wreckage and trash littered across the sea. Using their knowledge of recycling and engineering, they will transform the ocean trash into an up-cycled airplane to use to escape the Bermuda Triangle's stormy grasp!
Colossal Canyon — Students will learn about erosion and geology as they discover how the Grand Canyon was formed. As they learn about all types of geology and how erosion happens, they will see how rain, rivers, wind, and snow all play an important part in shaping the world we live.
We know, we’ve done such a great job explaining summer camp online that you might feel you don’t even need to come in and ask any other questions. But each Childcare Network school in America will plan their summer schedule around the available field trip opportunities in your local area. You’ll need to Schedule a Tour so you can ask your school’s director for a local weekly listing of themes!
Plus, we’re pretty sure you’ll want to know how much summer camp costs. Is summer camp free? No, but with so many locations nationwide and varying price schedules across different states, you’ll either have to call and speak with one of our Enrollment Specialists (866-521-5437) or you’ll have to visit one of our schools. Are you ready to Schedule a Tour now?
Safe Summer Camp Transportation
Our schools are focused on safety with the children every day that they are in our care. This goes beyond the classroom and into our transportation safety as well. Every Childcare Network driver completes a comprehensive driver training program before transporting the children to and from school. Each bus is equipped with child scan technology, which ensures that all children properly exit the bus. We want to ensure you that your children are in the safest care when they are at Childcare Network.
