Outdoor Adventurer/Biking and Swimming….August 4-15
Have you ever wondered how to use a compass? Or, how to build a fire without a match? Children will play and explore as they become “Outdoor Adventurers” during this session. Our young naturalists will learn to rely on and hone their five senses as they explore some amazing aspects of the natural world. Riding a bicycle is a wonderful way for children to feel free and enjoy summer days. Do you remember playing in the “great outdoors” as a child? For a wide range of reasons, today’s children are simply not experiencing as much active play time as their parents did. In fact, a new term is used to describe this trend; it’s called “nature deficit disorder” (Richard Louv, 2008). Session includes weekly swimming instruction at the YWCA in Princeton. In the afternoons, we will enjoy team building activities and cooperative adventures as we learn to bike or hone our existing skills. Please bring bike to camp.
