Classes will meet Monday – Wednesday (on the dates above), and a sample afternoon will include:

1:30 – 2:10:  Music
We’ll start our day with a fun hello song to meet new friends, learn each other’s names, and get singing. We’ll follow this up with parachute songs and games, musical hide and seek, a singing picnic, and even a fun game of “Sound Bingo.” The time will fly!

2:10 – 2:25: Snack time
We’ll play lively classical music and enjoy a snack on our picnic blankets. Parents, you will be asked to please send a small snack with your child to each class.**

2:25 – 3:00: Art
In our first day of camp, our talented teachers will guide your child to choose the perfect paint colors to create a beautiful ocean, sky, or jungle scene. On each of the following days, we will create plants, animals, and summer adventures using many different materials and glue them onto the board to create a beautiful and fun summery scene.

3:00 – 3:05: Dance break
We’ll have a short 5 minute break before yoga to get the kids ready to move. A perfect time for a dance party!

3:05 – 3:45: Yoga 
What better way to end our day than with a Yoga Adventure?! March, surf, swim and Yes!…. even ride a tractor to our yoga adventures.  Once there we may meet a lion, a starfish, or maybe a glowing jellyfish or lightning bugs!  Each class will end with a yoga story and yoga nap under the sparkling starry skies.
