On-campus Classes

 

Campers in Grades 2-3 get to choose their classes and design their own camp day based on their specific interests.  Choose single or double period classes from the tech world, fine & performing arts, science classes, sports & swimming, etc. to fill your summer with fun.  Campers can combine a variety of these options to make an action packed adventure this summer.  Be sure to check out our on-campus grid to see when certain classes are offered.

 

Before you choose your classes, here are some important things to know:

  • Create your schedule by choosing single or double periods to create a full day.
  • Campers may not take the same class twice in a single session.
  • Some classes (Arts & Mad Scientists) have different themes each week so that you can choose what interests you.
  • Some activities (Babysitting, Advanced Drama, Inspirational Math and more) are double periods and last all morning or all afternoon.
  • We recommend taking a wide variety of classes.
  • Please note: The Stone Ridge pool has a shallow end of 4 feet. Campers must demonstrate proficiency to our Aquatics staff or a Stone Ridge swim safety vest will be required.

SPECIALTY CAMPS

COOKING CAMPS (BY TINY CHEFS)

While exploring cultural and food related themes, Tiny Chef's program includes a foundation of learning that enhances what kids learn in their regular classrooms; organization skills, safety, nutrition, working as a team, cooperation, taking turns. Basic reading and math skills are used daily, as campers follow recipes, learn to measure, and double or half the amounts. Campers will learn how much fun it is to cook, as well these special joys of cooking: Pride in creating a meal to share with others, Creativity in putting your own special twist on a familiar recipe. New techniques and skills while working with familiar foods and exotic delicacies, and learning a life skill is useful every day! We hope all our Tiny and Gourmet Chefs, and their families; enjoy the recipes we have included in their session. All students will receive an apron and cookbooks will be emailed after the session containing the recipes they have made, so that they may share their new skills, experiences and tastes with everyone at home. Send in a tupperware container for your child to take home extra goodies from camp!  Please note: Tiny Chefs, Inc. is a nut-free company, but is unable to accommodate gluten, dairy, or egg allergies.

 

TINY CHEFS (GRADES 2-4) - $440 (WEEK 3 ~ $352)

Dips and Donuts (Week 2 ~ June 25-29)

Does your kid love to dip their food? Chips in salsa, veggies in hummus, bread sticks in marinara sauce? How about dipping donuts in glazes and toppings?  In this fun, nutritious and delicious camp, the Tiny Chefs will do all of that! Savory recipes like Mexican Layered Dip or Spinach and Artichoke Dip in Wonton Wrappers will be made side-by side with Lemon Glazed Blueberry Donuts and Pumpkin Donut Holes with Cinnamon Topping. These are just a few of the types of recipes your Tiny Chef will enjoy as they dip and dunk (and bake and blend) their way through our newest camp!

Let’s Make Everyday a Holiday  (Week 3 ~ July 2-6; no camp July 4)

Holidays conjure up memories and nostalgia and so much of it food related!  Get ready for a week of delicious celebrations as we whip up Thanksgiving Pumpkin parfaits, Fourth of July cupcakes, Valentine's Day Chocolate Raspberry mousse cups, Halloween spider web pizzas, and Cinco de Mayo veggie quesadillas with guacamole, plus much, much more!  What could be more fun than enjoying Valentine’s Day goodies in July?  Join us for this 4 day week!

Breakfast for Dinner (Week 6 ~ July 23-27)

Turn your favorite breakfast dishes into the main event as dinner options.  How about a cheddar-chive frittata with fresh salsa?  Or Brunch pasta with bacon and eggs?  Maybe you’d prefer a more traditional French toast, dressed up with bananas and blueberries?  Any way you slice it your little chef will love tucking into these comforting breakfast classics.
