Description

 

Parents and their children, ages 3 ½ to 12, are invited to visit  our beautiful, four-acre campus, including the new Arts & Nature Studies Annex Saturday, January 25, 2014 at 2:00 p.m.  Come meet the Summer Play Director and hear all about Blue Rock's unique and adventure-filled summer program.   Summer Play at Blue Rock School is a fun and enriching place for your child to spend summer days engaging in a variety of hands-on, creative and playful activities that take place both in the classrooms of Blue Rock School's 18th-century stone farmhouse, the new Arts & Nature Studies Annex, and outdoors on our serene, four-acre, wooded property. Here, playgrounds abound and there are enough magical play spaces for the most vivid imaginations. It is an enchanting place where lasting memories are made.   Summer Play is run by a warm, caring and dedicated staff which include Blue Rock School faculty, local artists and teachers. The program includes the following activities daily: Art & Music, Nature & Science, Woodworking, Drama, Games, Free Play, and Swimming!  Children in our older groups are eligible to choose our Excursion Option one day each week.  These excursions are a special opportunity for sharing unique experiences and forming lasting friendships. Space is limited so that students may explore activities more intimately and extensively. Veteran environmental educators and hikers lead the children on a variety of walks on hiking trails, in local parks, and near lakes & rivers.      This five-week program was started in 2001 by parents and teachers to provide a safe, child-centered and joyous experience for all children, and to share the "Blue Rock experience" with the broader community. A major component of this unique experience is the celebration and nurturing of childhood itself.   The program is specially designed for children ages 3 ½  through 12. By allowing children the time to explore, collaborate, connect with the natural world, express themselves creatively, and play, each day is a journey of self discovery.  Summer Play also offers a CIT program for children ages 13 and older.  Tuition is highly affordable, and each summer, the program typically draws over half of its campers from other area schools, both public and private, and from the home-schooled community as well.   Former Summer Play parent Wanda Octaviano summed up her children’s experience at Summer Play, “At Blue Rock summer day camp, my boys were always looking forward to the next day. For them, being at Blue Rock was a unique adventure full of fun, discovery and self-expression. I always tell my friends that I would gauge how much fun my boys had by how filthy they were at the end of the day. Now that's how summer fun should be!!”   Open House Saturday, January 25th at 2:00 pm.
