Summer Program Information
Prepare for a fun-filled and educational summer at Appleseed Academy! Always striving to be just a little different than everyone else, we are focusing on exciting enrichment camps for children ages 2 through 12. Our summer camps offer unique opportunities for children to expand their knowledge in an exciting and challenging atmosphere. Your children are sure to have fun and learn new things in our theme based programming. And, for the school aged kids (full-time care only), we have field trips planned every week, the price of which is included in your weekly tuition. Each theme focuses on a new adventure. Every week, the children will engage in a multitude of activities relating to the current theme, including art, drama, stories, music, and mental and physical challenges. Below are samples of curriculum we used last summer.
