Play Hollow Camp Summer 2022
Guided by principles of whole-body integration and created in a collaborative effort, Amber, OT, and Natalia, Bilingual SLP, have designed a unique experience where children will build their foundational skills while exploring nature, community, music/movement, and art.
There are 4 week sessions to pick from and you are welcome to sign up for more than 1! From 9 AM to 11:30 AM, children between the ages of 3 and 6 years old will participate in:
- Bilingual Rhythm and Music Class: children will be exploring, creating, and dancing to the different linguistic, rhythmic, and musical patterns that shape our experience and enrich our community.
- Nature Exploration and Outdoor Play: children will be visiting the local trails and parks in the village of Ballston Spa where they will have the opportunity to learn natural concepts and enjoy the summer weather (whatever it may be that day!)
- Picnic Snack Time: We will be providing healthy snacks and drinks where children will reflect and gather together sharing a small meal.
- Whole-Child Focused Skill Building: With 30+ years of combined early childhood experience in areas speech-language/cognitive/motor development, Amber and Natalia have designed nature-based lessons and activities that allow children to use their whole-body intelligence to develop the skillsets that will prepare them for the road ahead.
$199 (cost includes snacks and all project materials)
