Benefits of Summer Camp


- Outdoors: These camps are almost completely outdoors, giving children time to fully explore nature and soak up the sun!!


- Consistency: Instead of needing to find a different program or school for the 

summer, your child and family can continue at Patchwork for the entire summer!


- Community: Our summer program offers children a multi-age experience, in which they can be leaders, learners, and teachers. 


- Field Trips: Full day options give us a chance to plan field trips and explore our community! 


- Transitions: Especially for new Patchwork families and Toddler families transitioning to the Preschool in the Fall , this is a great way for you and your family to get familiar with Patchwork families and teachers! 


- Depth of Experience: Exploratory topics give us a chance to really dig in to some fun outdoor threads!
