For rising kindergarteners through rising sixth graders, Day Camp offers a wide range of enriching activities each day, including arts and crafts, music and drama, science and technology, sports, and daily swimming. Campers are grouped by age into “home bases” according to grade level and assigned to a caring counselor who rotates with the group through the daily activities. The counselors will not only supervise activities, but act as role models as the campers are encouraged to act in a kind and responsible manner.  We believe that each camper is important and unique, and we strive to encourage these individual strengths each day.

    • Campers must bring their lunch every day.
    • Each camper is provided a fabulous Day Camp T-shirt.
    • Campers utilize the Lower School’s excellent facilities including music rooms, art studios, computer and science labs, and the tinkering space.
    • Each week of camp has a designated theme. Special events and field trips are designed around the theme.
    • Off-campus transportation is provided by school buses operated by our own team of professional SSSAS Transportation Department drivers.

    Under the direction of Saints Kindergarten Teacher Leslie Williams, this engaging half-day camp option for our youngest campers emphasizes fun and friendships and is staffed by responsible and experienced adults who have been trained and prepared for this summer’s fun! Each child enjoys a small, self-contained class with art activities, building, puzzles, stories, and singing. The groups have outdoor playground time, as well as water play.

    To provide the best possible experience for every child, Junior Day campers must be three years old and toilet trained before the start of camp. Please apply sunscreen each morning and bring a daily snack and suit/towel for water play. Space is limited, so sign up early!

    Creative Cooking with Tiny Chefs (Grades JK-2)
    Welcome to Tiny Chefs: A company dedicated to sharing the joy of cooking with kids. Kids of all ages love to get into the kitchen and help make treats and meals. At Tiny Chefs we tap into that love and make learning to cook fun, educational, nutritious, and did we mention fun? In each class we will introduce recipes that will enable your “Tiny Chef” to practice skills such as measuring, mixing, stirring, baking. and cooperating. As always your chefs will have plenty of good eats to sample and take home to share.

    Advanced Culinary Skills for Tiny Chefs (Grades 3-6)
    Welcome to Gourmet Chefs: A company dedicated to sharing the joy of cooking with kids. These days more and more kids are becoming interested in food and cooking. At Gourmet Chefs we aim to tap into that interest by creating an environment in which culinary exploration is balanced with important basic skills that students will use for the rest of their lives. In each completely interactive class, our Gourmet Chefs in training will prepare an entrée, healthy snack, or dessert. They will learn many of the basics of cooking, such as how to read and reference a recipe, proper measuring and knife skills and multiple cooking techniques including baking, grilling, and sautéing. As the students gain culinary knowledge they will also be expanding their vocabulary, reading comprehension, math and logic skills and their ability to work as a team. 

    Detailed theme discriptions are listed below:

    Baking “Boot Camp” (Session I)
    Move beyond the basics and stretch your baking repertoire to include things like biscuits, muffins, cupcakes, fruit tarts, and dessert sauces.  Students will also learn measurements and equivalents, as well as basic techniques like folding, whisking, and rolling during this week.
     
    Cupcake Wars (Sessions II & VII) 
    Cupcakes are all the rage and it’s a trend that’s clearly here to stay!  If you’ve ever been curious about how the pros make those cupcakes so precious and ornate, and if competition is your middle name, then this is the week for you!  We’ll spend three days on cupcake basics-measuring, mixing, baking, and frosting, and then finish the week with two days of baking battle!  Small teams will face off with one another to compete for the title of “Best Cupcake!”  May the best cupcake win!

    Donut Bar (Session III)
    Donuts have always been an American favorite—after all we have THREE National Donut Days! But the growing popularity of gourmet donuts has raised the bar for us at Tiny Chefs and we have created a whole session dedicated to the deliciousness of Donuts! Thanks to donut baking pans we can bypass the mess and risk of deep-frying without losing any of the taste! We are pretty sure that flavors such as Mexican Hot Chocolate Donuts, Apple Cider Donuts and Lemon Blueberry Glazed Donuts will ensure that your Tiny Chef will enjoy the “hole” session! Add a variety of flavored glazes to choose from and it may just end up being their favorite experience, bar none!

    Mexican Fiesta! (Session IV)
    Mexican and Southwestern foods are among the most popular cuisines in America. In this summer camp, Tiny Chefs will learn to make their favorite Mexican items like salsas, guacamole, tortilla chips, enchiladas, quesadillas, empanadas, rice pudding, churros and chocolate, and the list goes on and on and on!

    Breakfast for Dinner! (Session V)
    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.

    Snack Attack (Session VI)
    This week students will push the limits on the snack concept and prepare a variety of wholesome, delicious, and unique nibbles.  This is not your mother’s PB&J!  Chefs will prepare a variety of bite-sized munchies like chicken salad cups, homemade granola bars, veggie nachos, roasted red pepper hummus with homemade pita chips, and more.  No one will go hungry this week!
