Londonderry Backyard Summer Camp 2020
Summer days aren’t lazy at Londonderry’s Backyard Summer Camp. Children ages 5 through 5th grade enjoy tending and harvesting the gardens, cooking, exploring and building structures in the wooded areas of the playground, creating crafts, dancing, playing games, and making new friends. Certified teachers weave cross-curricular learning opportunities into hands-on activities and play. Weekly yoga, STEAM, and music classes are highlights. Pizza picnics are a Friday treat. To paraphrase one of the school’s founders, “Children will want to protect nature as adults when they have directly experienced nature as children.” At Backyard Summer Camp, staff takes every opportunity to help children develop their appreciation for the natural world. Whether composting, admiring visiting owls, growing seeds or dodging raindrops in bathing suits as part of water play, children joyfully connect with their environment every day.
