This summer, we are once again offering full-day camps for preschoolers in one-week sessions over seven weeks. All current and incoming CDS students are welcome, as well as students from the community who are at least four years old. Camp operates much like the typical preschool day at CDS: campers will enjoy morning circle, outdoor play, lunch, nap, snack, art, and visits to the farm and garden.

REGISTER HERE. You will be redirected to UltraCamp, our online camp management website. There, you can create an account and log in to make reservations based on availability of the current camp sessions and also make camp payments.

CDS Summer Camp 2019 offers the following sessions for preschool campers:

Session I: Wacky Weather, June 24—28

From twisty tornadoes to super-sized tsunamis, the world always has some wacky weather to throw at us! During this week, we’ll dive deep in to what makes this weather happen, while getting wacky ourselves with art projects and science experiments.

Session II: Castles and Dragons, July 1—5 (no camp July 4)

Come join us in a land far away where castles loom tall and dragons soar the skies. We’ll transform camp into a magical world, and transform ourselves into the kings, queens, wizards, and witches we’ve always wanted to be.

Session III: Oops, Splat, Ick: Messy Science, July 8—12

The most important scientific discoveries in the world are made by the messiest scientists! During this camp, we’ll say oopsies, make splats, and shout “Ick!” while learning what makes the world tick.

Session IV: Yarrr Lil Mateys, July 15—19

Landlubbers, leave your shaky legs ashore! Come join us as we sail the seven seas in search of buried treasure, tropical hideouts, and adventure galore!

Session V: Space Explorers, July 22—28

Hop into your rocket ship and launch into orbit! From meteors to foreign planets to black holes, we’ll explore the vastness of space and maybe even encounter an alien along the way.

Session VI: Magical Mermaids, July 29—August 2

Have you ever wanted to swim with mermaids? In this session, we’ll dive deep into the ocean to see how mermaids, whales, jellyfish, and other sea creatures spend their days in the water. Watch out for the sharks!

Session VII: Pass, Shoot, Score!, August 5—9

Joe DiMaggio, Brandi Chastain, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Rickey Henderson are all Bay Area natives. Drawing on inspiration from these heroes, our little campers will spend the session working on their passing, shooting, and team work in whatever way moves them!
