Cascades Academy Independent School PK-12

Schedule

Since some of our programs are excursion-based and others more activity heavy, we have divided our summer into two different schedules. These schedules help to best suit the needs of specific weeks of camp, their themes, and the activities planned. Each day of camp begins at 9:30am with a check in time between 9:00 to 9:30am and the camp day finishes at 4pm with a pick up time between 4:00-4:30PM.

Weeks 1, 2, 3, and 4

Construction Crew, Toy Makers, Space Explorers, and Awesomely Oceanic
Each day is designed to include traditional day camp activities, such as group games and songs all related to our theme, as well as a recess/water time to take a break and cool off. Our activity periods are designed to accommodate the needs of our campers and the specific project they are working on, so we set their length to a period of time that students can adequately focus and work.

Each age group will rotate to different activity periods throughout the day where they will work on week-long projects or daily challenges, and each project is designed to appropriately challenge campers according to their specific age group. Each Friday there is a special afternoon camp culmination that will showcase the work our campers have accomplished throughout the week. We encourage all families to join us on Friday afternoons to see the work that campers have created!

The first day of camp is an “on site” day in which campers will rotate to three separate activity periods and have some time for an afternoon recess/water break. On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we will get campers out in our community with special excursions where we will do activities, games, experiments, and more.
