Little Explorers Discovery School Summer Camps
*Registration open for current LEDS students December 1, 2021.
At Little Explorers, children will engage in a summer camp experience where imagination is encouraged through open- ended loose materials exploration, art creations, STEM activities, creative movement, music, stories and lots of outdoor discovery play!
Teachers will utilize our Reggio-inspired approach to respond to the children's interests and development with provocations and ideas to engage, inspire and extend their curiosities.
Camp Themes (2 week sessions)
Endless Creations: June 27-July 8
Children will get a chance to explore with many different art mediums and STEM materials and express themselves using their own creativity and imagination as their guide.
*LEDS will be closed Monday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
Get Up and Move!: July 11-July 22
Through gymnastics, team sports, dance, movement games, bike riding, yoga and more, children will get a chance to explore many different types of ways to move their bodies.

Campers will travel to different parts of our world, exploring different countries, landscapes, plants and animals. They will even take a trip out of this world while they blast off to outer space!
