“The staff and personnel are amazing. It feels like 'home'. When your child does not want to leave at the end of the day and asks to be 'first' every morning, you know he loves it and it gives you peace of mind knowing there is no other place he'd like to be.”
– Robyn Pflomm, parent
Our Summer Camp program is a 10-week program for children entering kindergarten.
ENROLLMENT IS OPEN TO CURRENT NIELSEN STUDENTS AND THOSE ENROLLED AT NIELSEN FOR KINDERGARTEN IN THE FALL.
We transform our indoor gym into a classroom that is set up with a variety of learning centers including literacy, math, science, dramatic play and social studies. We also have the opportunity of using our kindergarten classroom on a daily basis for special activities including woodworking, crafts such as sewing, large block play and for other large group projects. This camp program fosters independence and creativity while building upon children's academic and social skills.
Children in our Summer Camp program enjoy spending large amounts of time outdoors on our playground and activity field as they participate in group games such as soccer, baseball and color tag. Sports based physical fitness classes are part of our program. These classes teach children life skills, motor development and health habits through sports. Field trips are planned throughout the summer to provide children with extended learning opportunities. Field trips, along with Friday cook outs, provide parents with an opportunity to join their children for some fun in the sun during their summer camp experience.
