2015 Summer Program Theme:
"This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land" The 2015 program was jam packed with American History!  Much fun was had by all!




 
 

2014 Summer Daycamp Theme:
"Time Flies When You Are Having Fun."

   Our Summer Program for 2014 was amazing!  We averaged 160-170 children each week. They did crafts, played games, enjoyed special guest visitors, and received a free book and lunch.  The only way this program is successful is through our amazing volunteers and generous donations.
    A special thank you to Marion Polk Food Share for providing additional food and snacks, and the Boys & Girls Club for providing free backpacks and school supplies.

     A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED AND BEEN PART OF MAKING MEMORIES FOR OUR KIDS!!

     We did "time travel" to the time of dinosaurs, the Egyptian pyramids, become knights and ladies of the Round Table, raft-mates of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, and heard from present-day Native Americans about what it was like to live in America before they were "discovered."

 

In 2013 our theme was "Its a Small World."  We traveled the world and learned about reptiles (a 13 ft snake, land tortoises, lizards); what it was like to serve during World War II; the Asian art of Orgami; and we went "down under" to learn how to throw a boomerang.  We learned about space travel and airplanes; recycling and "green" gardening; and the living conditions in Africa. We laughed, we read, we ran, we fell down, we discovered things we did not know, made new friends and learned about the world around us.
