St. Peter’s Summer Camp to Provide
Academics, Fun and Food
(Wednesday, May 19, 2010)—If you are one of the countless parents out there who tries to find a summer camp that develops your child’s mind, body and spirit, then your prayers have been answered! St. Peter’s Memorial School 2nd Annual Summer Camp has all that and more. Starting Tuesday, June 1, 2010 and continuing until Wednesday, June 30, 2010, this month-long program will be a perfect balance of school and play, making both parents and kids happy.
The summer camp will be open to all students, not just those who attend St. Peter’s, and will be offered for students from K-3 (three years old minimum and must be potty-trained) to those entering 8th grade. The day will start at 8:30 a.m. and run to 3:30 p.m., with a jam-packed schedule that will offer all students free breakfast and lunch. Subject matter that will be highlighted will be reading/phonics and language development, for those students for whom English is a second language, as well as art and math classes, drama/dance, writing, and science classes, and a mini daily basketball camp to help provide a well-rounded learning experience. Last year’s favorite class, the cold cooking class, is back as well and is perfect for young hands who want to learn how to help in the kitchen. The day then ends with story time. However, for those parents who work until 5:00 p.m., there will also be after-camp care offered.
Come one, come all!” says Dr. Linda Marie Garcia Mitchell, principal of the school. “The St. Peter’s Memorial School summer camp will be educational, fun, and exciting, and most importantly parents: your children will be well cared for, and they will learn a tremendous amount of information,” she concluded.
The cost for the month-long program, which runs from Monday through Thursday, is only $300, and only $260 per second child. The after-school care will be $6 per day, flat-fee.
