This summer at The Orchard, it’s all about being a Happy Camper: unplugging, unwinding and having some good ole fashioned fun. The good times will meander their winding ways through silly science experiments, cooking concoctions, orienting and scavenger hunts, storytelling and music’s many pleasures including songs, instruments and movement. Each week will have it’s own special focus leading up to a happy bang on Fridays. FUN!
Week 1 Fabulous Friday “Feets & Feats” July 6-10
This week, we are going back to good ol’ summertime with picnic games (think egg and spoon relay, bean bag toss, pillowcase hop, three legged run) and lots of homemade picnic goodies to east. Our special guest this week is a puppet show!
Week 2 Fabulous Friday Campout July 13-17
Grab your sleeping bag, your favourite pjs and a spooky story for our daylight campout under the trees instead of the stars…make sure you leave some room for our “campfire” s’mores. Special presentation this week is a marionette show.
Week 3 Fabulous Friday Feast July 20-24
We are very lucky that our own Top Chef Canada winner (or more importantly, Theo’s dad) Carl Hienrich has accepted our Fabulous Friday Feast Challenge. He and his numerous sous chefs will craft and later feast upon their inspired creations outside under our apple trees.
Week 4 Play It Again Sam! July 27-31
Kid’s Choice this week! As we know, if it’s good, you want to do it again and again and AGAIN! This final week, the children will look back over the previous three weeks and as a group, choose their favourite experiences and activities to build their own “perfect camp week”.
