St. Nicholas School Summer Camp 2016 is May 31 through August 5. Located in the East Brainerd area, the camp features a day and enrichment camp for boys and girls ages 4-12, and a camp leadership program for ages 13-15. Our camp hours are 7am-6pm.
St. Nicholas offers an exciting multi-day art and music component to our weekly schedule. On the days that groups are not scheduled for a field trip or swimming, children attend an art class and music class. Add-on enrichment classes are offered each week. Campers also have the opportunity to participate in our gardening program. Involvement in age-appropriate group activities and exposure to diverse athletic and educational experiences are the foundation to the summer camp program. The St. Nicholas atmosphere of respect and trust advances the development of personal and situational skills. And yes, the children are having fun too!
ART classes provide campers with a variety of fun materials including paint, pencil, watercolor, and craft supplies. Over the course of the summer, groups are encouraged
to explore their own creativity and create masterpieces using a variety of fun materials.
The MUSIC component provides opportunities for campers to be creative while working with others through the art of improvisation. They have the chance to become comfortable sharing their singing and other musical talents in a creative and spontaneous environment. Campers also have the opportunity to experiment with various musical instruments during camp.
GROWING A GARDEN can be easy and lots of fun! Campers learn the basics of growing summer veggies, herbs and flowers in the St. Nicholas school garden. Garden activities include caring for greenhouse plants, making flower necklaces, watering, weeding, saving flower seeds and tasting garden goodies, like fresh tomato salsa.
