St. Columba's Nursery School: Building the mind, body, and spirit through active play

Summer Camp

Information about our Summer Camp

"Oh, the times they are a changin...'"

Summer @ St. Columba’s is reinventing itself to offer children from ages 2 to 6 years new and exciting camp experiences blended with traditional low-key, splashy summer fun on our beautiful playgrounds and comfortable classrooms.

June 17 through July 26

Tot Camp for children ages 2 and 3 years

For our youngest campers we are offering six weeks of fun in the sun (and shade) in a shorter day or full day format.  Tot Camp runs from 8:30 am to 1 pm or 2:30 pm from June 17 through July 26 (see application for available sessions).

Coach Seth's ActivePlay Camp

Coach Seth Goldman will continue his terrific school-year enrichment classes with three weeks of sports or dance camp, Monday through Friday from 9 am to 12 noon. ActivePlay Camp is in session, June 24-28, July 08-12 and July 22-26.

St. C's Theme Camp

Led by St. C teachers, Theme Camp alternates with the week of ActivePlay camp running  July 1 through 5  from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm. (Camp will be in session July 4th.)

During Mad Science theme week (July 01-05) children will be mesmerized by fascinating science and cooking activities using the magic of chemistry. Fun and delicious, these experiments will teach the children how science can be found in every day experiences. Our final day of "mad science" will feature  a series of jaw-dropping (but safe) science demonstrations on the playground.
