Nothing without Joy! ~ Loris Malaguzzi
Our Reggio inspired “Creativity Camps” support learning in fun and innovative ways. By interconnecting the arts and sciences, students develop a thirst for knowledge while having a wonderful time. Students may attend the entire summer school series, or select their favorite weeks. No matter how you cut it, CCC is the perfect slice of summer fun!
Each week our master teachers introduce BIG IDEAS as topics of investigation. Our years of experience implementing the Reggio Approach has taught us that inquiry supports knowledge, and that knowledge is built upon questions and re-search. By balancing academics and open choice activities, students are self-motivated and inspired by their love to learn. Our studios spaces support work and play using a variety of mediums and materials. We offer a “100 languages” with which to discover and learn. Each child gains confidence through individu-al and group work. Students find their own special voice and identity while learning to work with their peers.
CCC’s facility is unique and very special. Once a little farm, the grounds and buildings retain the open feeling of country living. Our 200 x 200 foot play-ground supports outdoor play as students explore the gardens, dig in the sandbox, kick balls across the grass, and play hide and seek in the forest. From scooters to water play, summer days are super fun!
Our summer indoor & outdoor classrooms are organized with gathering areas, open play spaces and studios centers. Students may attend from 9-3:00 or select a half day option with a pick up at 12:00. Extended care is available in the morning and afternoons.
Students begin their day by checking in with teacher for morning meeting and group time. We start with music, movement and stories. Big Ideas are launched and the fun begins! Throughout the campus are special summer studio areas that support the children’s investigations and creativity! Teachers and students use the studios areas to bring their ideas to life! After lunch the studios reopened for free exploration. Students can continue their morning ideas or do something new! Below is a list of our studios followed by our Creativity camp line up.
