Welcome to Summer!

Summertime is a great time to be at CCC!   Our creativity camps provide enriching educational experiences while providing fun in the sun!  Parents get a break, while the children play and learn with friends!  This year’s lineup includes garden, art, science, and splash camps.  Each week is designed to go in depth into a subject examining the “what and whys of our world.”

Please download our 2015 Summer Programs & Creativity Camps brochure for a registration form.

2015 Camp Descriptions:

The Young Naturalist
June 29 – July 3

Things that fly, grow, creep, and crawl; what can you discover in the great outdoors? Eco-literacy is all the rage, and this camp explores it all! This week we will plant seeds and trees, trek out on nature walks to explore what’s in our neighborhood and capture our discoveries in our handmade nature journal. We will find beauty in recycled materials as we transform and repurpose

Super Scientists
July 6-10

CCC takes children’s inquiry to a new level by exploring three science disciplines in one week! Chemistry, biology, and physics interconnect and weave throughout this session! Experiments explode as we pose questions, build hypotheses, and theorize the “how, what, and why?” Let’s find out! We will make magic mixtures, design an egg drop vehicle, blast off a rocket, and grow some biological friends! This super week introduces the scientific process in amazing ways!

A Mid-Summer’s Day Dream
July 13-17

It’s a week of theatrical fun as we travel to our own mystical world of a Midsummer’s DAY dream. We will encounter wonder and merriment as we are enchanted by mischievous fairies, wee folk, wizards and more! Who are the forest creatures and mythological beings that inhabit the woods and gardens at CCC? Shall we build them a place to play? Through theater, literature and art, we will share some old tales and write some new ones, transforming into characters of our own design.

Makers Part I –Tinkering Time!
July 20 – 24

Expand your mind as you explore the tools and materials in our Summer Tinkering Studio! Participants will explore the meaning of Design Thinking, planning and construction! From gears to gadgets, it’s tinker time!

Makers Part II— Structures and More
July 27 – 31

From concept to completion, this week will look at the steps and actions needed to make our dreams come true! What’s on your wish list? Who can help and what is needed? From digital design to nuts and bolts, let’s do it!

Summer Splash: Water Works!
August 3– 7

Slip, sliding away! Let’s get moving in this fantastical week of water play! From splashy arts and crafts to wet and wild science, a slip sliding good time will be had by all! Crazy water games will fill the days with laughter. Pack a bag with sunscreen, swim suit, towel and an extra change of clothes.

Art by Heart
August 10-14

Given the tools, the time and inspiration every child is an ARTIST! Join us for this amazing week of art exploration and design. From self portraits to sculptures, children will explore two and three dimensional design through exposure to a wide variety of materials. They will learn to combine art elements with technique and imagination. From clay sculptures to print making, masterpieces will appear! This week concludes with an art show on Friday.
