2018 Summer Camps

Summer is an exciting time at LMPS!  We offer six enriching weeks of camp, led by our experienced and fun director and staff.  Each of the six weeks will center on a different theme for indoor and outdoor center times to stretch the boundaries of your child's imagination. The camp week will be Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM. To 1:00 P.M., including lunch time (children will bring their own lunches). Curriculum will be packed with fun and purposeful play, so be prepared to see your child continue to blossom as they improve their math, science, social and literacy skills. You may enroll for any number of weeks. Enrollment is now open. See the attached registration form.

Camp dates and themes

June 4-8:  Marvelous Mo Willems

We will explore language arts fun with Mo Willems and his unique stories and style.  The children will learn about authors, illustrators and story structure.  They will create their own stories, illustrations and become authors themselves, as well as continue to develop their sense of humor and imagination. We will even act out some of his hilarious stories in the classroom and enjoy dramatic play.

June 25-29:  Me and My Town

We will delve into geography as we learn about our hometown, state and country, and how we fit into the big wide world. We will also scientifically examine nature in our own backyards.  We will create our own book with pictures and words from our surroundings.  We are hoping to be able to spend a day at the Nature Center, weather permitting.

July 9-13:  Mysteries of the Deep

This is always a popular subject with the children. There is just something magical and mysterious about the ocean and all it has to offer.  We will learn about the biology and ecology of the sea and the plants and creatures that thrive in its environment. We will also have fun imagining traveling through this amazing underwater world in our own yellow submarine.

July 16-20:  Palaces, Princes and Princesses

This is another student favorite!.  Children are intrigued by the world of palaces, princes, and princesses.  The children will use their imaginations to create their own realms and fantasy worlds in the classroom, enjoy dramatic play with castles, and explore medieval children’s literature.  Additionally, we will make our own crowns and medieval dioramas.

July 30-August 3:  Putting the “A” in STEAM

We will explore science, technology, engineering and math in art! Believe it or not, there are lots of ways to bring these elements into the world of art.  Many famous artists have incorporated STEM in their works, and we have wonderful materials to help the children explore them.  We will once again culminate our creative week with a fabulous art show, inviting families and friends to join us in celebrating the students’ accomplishments.

August 6-10:  Festivals Around the World

What fun as we end the summer with a sociological and geographical study of the world and its celebrations!  Each culture has its own favorite way to acknowledge special events and holidays.  We will explore some of these from other countries, as well as some of our own in America.  We will invite families and friends to join us for the last celebration of the summer in a fun picnic-on-the-playground on Friday at 12:00.
