Continue Enrichment during School Vacations
During weeks of school vacations, Kids Corner offers morning and afternoon classes. These run 3 – 4 hours, and can have a two-hour “Supervised Lunch and Play” tacked on. We even allow full day classes where supervised lunch separates a morning and an afternoon activity. Kids Corner can thus be the vacation camp you need not travel far for. Kids Corner lets parents keep a regular work schedule, with pick-ups as late as 6pm.
Activities with Friends
The most appealing aspect of vacation with Kids Corner is doing activities with friends. Our favorite classes enlist students who know one another and have an interest in something new. The soccer team can stay together to learn a new sport like volleyball. The Math club can stay together for a new endeavor like “Rocketry” or “Mutual Minecraft”. Some of the band kids can take on guitar!
Combine Indoor and Outdoor Activities
Students can combine an indoor with an outdoor activity for five full days. “Book of the Month” plus Ultimate Frisbee. Chess plus Rocketry. Nutrition plus “Outdoor Explorations”. Speedy Reading plus “Sports of All Sorts” are four good combinations.
Vacations can include “Tier weeks” in the early and late summer, before camps start or after they have ended. Where a pool is available, Kids Corner offers “school and pool”: learning first, and wet fun to follow.
A Range of Affordability
Kids Corner’s vacation activities range from $85 to $275 per week for mornings or afternoons. Where materials get consumed, as in Rocketry, Jewelry-Making, Magic, and Fun Science, there is a $20 – $60 materials fee.
Kids Corner can work with Parks and Recreation Departments for maximum publicity, but our preference is for small “pods” of children who already know one another.
