  1. Pre-School Camp - Exploring Outer Space

    July 23, 2019, 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM @ Children's Discovery Museum

    We will explore and learn about outer space by reading Curious George Discovery Space and Curious George Discovers the starts, both by H.A. Rey. We will then do hands-on experimentation that relates to the solar system, gravity, and constellations! Pre-School Camps are two-day programs that are an excellent way for your child to experience a classroom setting. Children will begin camp with circle time, set classroom expectations as a group, sing a Hello song, and listen to a story to introduce the day's topic.
