Kindercamp 2017 was a success! The camp was held July 10-13 and 17-20, with both morning and afternoon session available to Niagara County residents. A total of 56 children attended the camp and were introduced to various developmentally appropriate learning experiences and activities that build upon and strengthen skills necessary for kindergarten.
The children were introduced to classroom routines including listening skills, following directions, taking turns, individual responsibility and more.
Kindercamp also included school-readiness activities such as language arts skills including name identification, letter and sound recognition, vocabulary and communication. Children worked on skills such as cutting with scissors as well as using shapes to make pictures.
A short parent information session was held on the final day of Kindercamp. Sixty-eight parents attended and were 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.
