Description: Parents and their children, ages 3-1/2 to 12, are invited to visit Blue Rock's beautiful, four-acre campus, including the new Arts & Nature Studies Annex and pool Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 2pm. Meet Summer Play staff and hear all about Blue Rock's unique and adventure-filled summer program, while children participate in a variety of fun, staff-led activities and games. Summer Play at Blue Rock School is a fun and enriching place for your child to spend summer days engaging in a variety of hands-on, creative and playful activities that take place both in the classrooms of Blue Rock School's 18th-century stone farmhouse, the new Arts & Nature Studies Annex, and outdoors. Here, playgrounds abound and there are enough magical play spaces for the most vivid imaginations. It is an enchanting place where lasting memories are made. Summer Play is run by a warm and dedicated staff which include Blue Rock School faculty, local artists, and teachers. The program includes the following activities daily: Art & Music, Nature & Science, Woodworking, Drama, Games, Free play, and Swimming. Children in older groups are eligible to choose an Excursion Option one day each week. These excursions are a special opportunity for sharing unique experiences and forming lasting friendships. Space is limited so that students may explore activities more intimately and extensively. Veteran environmental educators and hikers lead the children on a variety of walks on hiking trails, in local parks, and near lakes and rivers. This five-week program was started in 2001 by parents and teachers to provide a safe, child-centered, and joyous experience for all children, and to share the "Blue Rock experience" with the broader community. A major component of this unique experience is the celebration and nurturing of childhood itself. The program is specially designed for children ages 3-1/2 through 10-1/2. By allowing children the time to explore, collaborate, connect with the natural world, express themselves creatively, and play, each day is a journey of self discovery. Summer Play also offers a Junior CIT program for children ages 11 and 12. Tuition is highly affordable, and each summer, the program typically draws over half of its campers from other area schools, both public and private, and from the home-schooled community as well. Space for the March 9th Open House is limited. Please contact Blue Rock School to reserve your spot at 845-627-0234.
