Preschool Summer offers a safe and comfortable environment for preschool children (ages 3-5) to play, socialize, and learn in the summer. Each session will have a central theme upon which activities are based. Activities include painting, cooking, playing in centers, building, drawing, Play-Doh, and outside play. Afternoon rest time is included; stuffed animal friends and blankets from home are welcome. Occasionally, Preschool campers will take a short walk next door to visit our community garden plot at the Guilford College Farm.

2024 Preschool Summer Sessions

*This is a 4-day week, as we are closed Wednesday for the national holiday, Juneteenth.

Summer begins on Thursday this week. Let’s enjoy the simple pleasures it brings! We will learn about fireflies, make mud pies, chase bubbles, have picnics, play in tide pools, watch the clouds go by, and make our own cool summer treats. It’s going to be a bright, sunny week.

Learn about all the methods of travel we use to get around.  We will transform big boxes into vehicles of your choice. Small wooden models will be constructed to take home as well. Oh, the places we'll go!

Celebrate Halloween in July, when we get spooky but not scary exploring the fun of this holiday. Make Halloween decorations, create simple costumes, play pumpkin games, and decorate tote bags for candy. We will go trick or treating on Friday all over our campus!

Make a splash and join us under the sea! Dive into the deep blue sea by learning all about the creatures living there including all kinds of fish and sharks, the octopus, and the eel. We will make waves in our water table and with our fun ocean activities.

Step into a rainbow! We will explore colors using acrylics, liquid watercolors, oil pastels, and many other colorful media. Campers will play color games, sing songs, and create a colorful snack. They will also complete colorful crafts and tie-dye t-shirts.

Calling all aspiring architects and clever construction workers! We will work together on our engineering and construction skills this week. We will build with multiple sizes of blocks, Legos, Brio wooden toys, and many other materials. Participants will construct an item during the week to take home.
