Summer Camp

Program overview

Summer Camp 2018 Registration is now Open!

Introduction

Purple Tree Summer Camp provides a fun, exciting, and enriching camp experience right in the neighbourhood for children aged 2.5 – 7!

All camp programs are offered on a weekly basis.

Activities

Our weekly themes such as Pets & Vets, Water Wonderland, Awesome Athletes, and PT’s Got Talent will be brought to life through creative, physical, and dramatic play. Co-operative games, art projects, sports, and discovery, are just part of the fun!

Outdoor time will be a dynamic part of each day while also contributing to your child’s physical well being. In both mornings and afternoons we’ll enjoy games and free play in our secure backyard. Water play will include sprinkler fun and water games such as sponge tag and water rockets.

Special Guests and Outings

Special guests such as musicians, artists, entertainers, animal experts, and athletic coaches will add to the excitement of our on-site programming!  Children in our Camp Day and Full Day programs aged 3.5+ will also partake in trips to local parks, splash pads, and enjoy field games with operators like 10-10 Sports, Dymamix, and SportBall.

Age Groupings

Preschool children aged 2.5 – 4 years will have a fantastic camp experience during their fun-filled mornings, 9am – 12pm that will include an hour of outdoor activities prior to pick-up from the backyard. Our regular Full Day Preschool program continues to operate over July and August as a separate class.

Children entering JK in September 2018 may register for either Camp Day, 9am – 4pm or Full Day, 7:30am – 6pm. They will enjoy a unique small class in the mornings and then join with the SK/School Age group for action packed afternoons. The focus of the mornings will be on JK readiness with games and play-based camp themed activities to promote literacy, numeracy, social skills, and independence. Outdoor time will still play a crucial role with two periods a day.

SK/School Age children aged 5 – 7 may register for either Camp Day, 9am – 4pm or Full Day, 7:30am – 6pm. Our weekly camp themes will be incorporated into games, art, music, sports, sensory play, drama, and building projects. Daily morning and afternoon outdoor play/excursions will provide plenty of exercise and fresh air!

Summer Staff

Our regular teaching staff of energetic ECEs will ensure your child’s safety and well-being as well as providing continuity for PT children/campers.

Lunch & Snacks

Healthy full-course catered meals along with weekly picnic style lunches (served at noon) will keep your child energized throughout the day. We supply morning and afternoon snacks. Due to allergy concerns outside food is not permitted.
