Welcome to Friends School Summer Program! Friends Summer started in 2017 and has been a great success. The children are free to explore and discover within a flexible and relaxed learning environment. We have a framework for each week based on themes, such as Science, Art, Five Senses, Cooking, Ocean, Dr. Seuss, Jungle, and more. The themes are expanded upon in different ways depending upon the age group. The children experience ample outdoor time, free play, classroom centers, arts & crafts, science, water fun, and enrichment every day.
The hours of our summer program are 8:30 - 1:30 with carpool running at 8:15 and 1:15. The children have a snack and lunch during their day with us but we do not accommodate naps during these hours. The ages of our campers range from 1 to elementary school age, and children are put into several smaller classes to ensure age-appropriate play and activities. Our camp counselors are a combination of many of our wonderful Friends teachers and some kid-loving young adults from the community.
We try to be flexible in understanding how busy and hectic summertime can be for families, but we do have some parameters when it comes to signing your child up for camps. To effect proper staffing, planning, and successful adjustment for the children, scheduling requirements can be found in the attached information. Enjoy some of our photos and testimonials from people who have already taken advantage of our summer program. Feel free to email or call with any questions you may have. Sign up and scheduling information will be attached when available. Thank you for considering Friends Summer!
