Our Camp Co-op is the camp experience most of our students start out attending. This year our June session included outside play in our backyard, water play, circle time, music, art, and our ever-popular snack bar. The children have a chance to participate, play and learn with a multi-age group and other students and teachers they may not get to see on a regular basis. It is a fun and messy week! Story and singing time helped them stay cool indoors singing and acting out a favorite, “Slippery Fish.” Water is a big part of our camp like using the drive through trike wash or playing other fun water games. Camp Co-op is the cure for our kids’ summertime blues!
We started something new this year with our Sibling Camp and it was quick to fill up! It was open to alumni and current students aged 3 years through 5th grade. Siblings had opportunities to play and learn together, and engage in cooperative activities that encouraged family bonding. What parent doesn’t want more of that?! These siblings had a blast playing cooperative games and creating together. This may just become a summer staple! Check out these smiling faces, yes, smiling while touching a sibling!
Alumni Art Camp
Alumni Art Camp is the much anticipated opportunity for Kids’ Cooperative alumni students who have completed grades 1-5. Geared with the older student in mind, the Alumni Art Camp allows for introduction and development of fine art techniques, all while letting children explore their creative side in an uninhibited environment. The result of this, as you can see below, is some serious, display-worthy art! The children enjoy reconnecting with classmates they may not see during the school year. This year there was a talent show and a serious cheerio-stacking competition in addition to all of the art-making. The week culminated in a potluck dinner where
alumni families had a chance to reconnect, view their children’s gallery of art, and pay to “paint the teachers”.
We would love to thank our teachers and staff who make this time very special for all of our children and putting up with the heat of the Las Vegas summer.
