Kindercamp is a program specifically designed to ease the transition for children (and their families) entering kindergarten. Kindercamp introduces children to various developmentally appropriate learning experiences and activities that build upon and strengthen skills necessary for kindergarten. Activities focus on listening skills, following directions, taking turns, individual responsibility, name identification, letter and sound recognition, vocabulary and communication, and more. Children also work on skills such as cutting with scissors as well as using shapes to make pictures.
To date, 169 children entering kindergarten have participated. Over 400 parents have also attended a final information session held at the end of Kindercamp where they are provided with information regarding kindergarten registration, such as what is needed at their individual school districts, school readiness activities to continue with their child throughout the summer as well as information regarding kindergarten curriculum and learning standards.
