Sizzle into summertime with St. John’s Summer Camp. How do you like to spend a hot day? Run through the sprinkler, lick a popsicle, sit in the shade? Campers will do all of these fun summertime activities and more as they try to stay cool.
Session 2 – June 15-19: Ocean Odyssey
Climb aboard the SJPDS Camp submarine to see all the sea creatures as they swim by. Look at the jellyfish with all of his tentacles, the sea turtle as she stretches her neck, and the beautiful starfish. Does a starfish have eyes? How long can a sea turtle hold her breath? Does a jellyfish have a brain? We will find out the answers to these questions and many more as we take our ocean adventure.
Session 3 – June 22-26: Under Construction
Calling all construction workers! The camp is in need of repair. Can we do it? Of course, we can, with just the right helpers and tools. We will call on the help of those famous three little pigs this week to build a strong foundation for St. John’s.
Session 4 – June 29-July 3: Team USA
From track and field to badminton to golf, we support the USA! Campers will have their own Olympic events as we cheer our country onto the Gold this week.
Session 5 – July 6-10: The Wild World of Maurice Sendak
Join in the fun as Max’s dream comes to life! What would you look like as a Wild Thing? What would you do if there were alligators all around? Sail with Max in his boat as you navigate through the many settings of Mr. Sendak’s stories.
Session 6 – July 13-17: Roaming the Rainforest
Grab your binoculars to explore the world of the rainforest. Find out how a python dances, a dart frog climbs, and a toucan talks as we see what’s under that umbrella in the rainforest.
Session 7 – July 20-24: Calling All Cow Girls and Cow Boys
Mosey on down to the ranch this week as we ride the horses and lasso the bulls. See what a rancher does so early in the morning, how to milk a cow, and what to do with all that sheep wool.
Session 8 – July 27-31: To the Market We Will Go
Summertime is the best time of the year to try fresh fruits and vegetables. Campers will do some planting on St. John’s Farm this week. We will open up the St. John’s Farmers Market selling fruits and vegetables of every color of the rainbow. Let’s try some fresh and delicious recipes too!
Session 9 – Aug. 3-7: Suess Sense
Get to know your five senses Cat in the Hat style. What do green eggs and ham taste like? What does it sound like when you chop down a truffella tree? Smell the apple. Feel the ooblek. Look at the mess Thing 1 and Thing 2 made! Dr. Seuss takes campers on a walk through their senses this week.
Session 10 – Aug 10-14: Out of This World!
Strap in, campers! Let’s take a trip to space. We will see the moon, the stars, and all the planets. Moonrock toss and searching for stars will be a few activities to do as we ride the spaceship.
