Come join us for our special wilderness club where we are enjoying the outdoors and learn to understand the workings of nature and our own unique connection to it. Our program gives the children the opportunity to experience and learn about biomes, plants, animals and more. The students engage with the animal and plant life around them, but also with the first people of this land, the Native Americans.
Team Building Nature Games train the children’s senses, teach them how to walk in the woods and how to orient themselves in nature. At the example of the Natives the children practice their wilderness survival skills. This club is very multifaceted and stirs up a love and passion in the children for the outdoors.
We will be tuning our ears for a 15-week course of music appreciation from around the world. Each class will incorporate listening exercises, introduce a new piece/style of music, allow time for the children to respond to the music through movement, art or poetry, and end with basic instruction in music theory. Beginning with Native American music, moving through Jewish, African, Classical, Jazz, Swing, Irish, Rock and Folk these children will come away with a genuine appreciation of the sounds and feelings that make music the unifying global art form that it is today.
Movement Club is for all kids that love to move! Which child does not? We stretch, roll, wave, spin, skip, slide, and dance our hearts out. We watch, listen and learn either with a partner or in groups. Movement is natural, healthy and expressive, building confidence in these beautiful children.
In this club we are introducing the children to the Spanish language and culture in a playful fashion. The kids learn first words, phrases and expression. They also learn more about South America, Spain, the Spanish speaking countries, their cultures and traditions. You can never start teaching a second language soon enough. The younger the kids the easier they learn while having a lot of fun.
In the days of computers and social media we are rediscovering the art of the game in this club! We re-introduce our children to challenging and fun games of all kinds. From card games to board games, from individual games to group games, we cover the entire spectrum. In a fun and joyful way, the kids practice their social as well as their relationship skills, and much more.
Art & Drama Club
We focus on many aspects of the performing arts! Putting on a show is much more than just walking on a stage, and much of what goes into building a performance are entire art forms in themselves. We cover topics such as auditioning, stage directions, prop building, costume design, puppet making, mask building, storytelling, improvisation, music design, and more. During other parts of the year, we introduce instruments and provide opportunities to play them in addition to exposing our children to a variety of art media.
