Each summer The Wetherill School is offers four-weeks of Summer Camp Program during the month of July for 3-and 4-year-olds who will be new to Wetherill in the fall and for our youngest returning children. Hours are from 9:00 to 12:00 each day. Families may register children for one or more weeks as preferred; weeks need not be consecutive. There is an optional lunch time until 1:00 pm. Cost $20 per lunch. Families will be invoiced weekly through Brightwheel.
Daisy Day Camp is designed to be a first camp experience and a way for our prospective students to get ready for school. We have found that in years past, children have had an easier transition to school if they have attended at least one week of camp. This year, we are welcoming newly enrolling children and current Wetherill children under five for one, two, three or all four weeks.
This camp program focuses on enjoying learning experiences through all of our senses. We will delve into children’s literature and a variety of hands-on experiences such as outdoor play, water play, gardening, art, music, drama, storytelling, science, and pre-academic activities to enhance pre-literacy and pre-math skills. Experienced Wetherill teachers/aides will lead the group.
Camp registration will be accepted on a first come first serve basis with preference given to our new enrollees. If you are interested in having your child attend, it is best to register early.
Once the school year ends in June, The Wetherill School classrooms are used for camps provided by outside groups: Science Explorers and Nature Adventure Camp. Registration information for these camps is posted on our website each winter.
