Peanut Butter & Jellyfish Summer Happenings
Secret Agents abound at Camp PBJ this summer. I have had (maybe too much) fun creating iSpy, secret codes, and laser obstacle courses for our spy themed camps. I'm working my way through a plethora of e-mails right now but wanted to get this out first since many questions are answered below. If you haven't heard back from me you can also e-mail Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org for a more timely response :). Hooray for summer days at the lake!!
You can sign up for camps and summer classes by logging into the parent portal using the e-mail address you're on now. New students and families who have been inactive for over a year can register directly from the camp page and create a new account.
Some updates to camps this year:
Camp PBJ for ages 1-12:
Kids will be secret agents all summer, but each week will have a different themed mission.
We'll be practicing self-regulation with Generation Mindful's Time-In curriculum.
Our character building focus this year is "I am supportive of myself and I encourage my friends" because you can never have too much kindness.
All camps are inclusive and kids with special needs are always welcome. We highly recommend coming in for a Taster class prior to camp so that we can be sure to set up an environment that will work for your child. We may request that a caregiver accompany children with intensive needs but we always work towards as much independence as possible! Many activities including swimming, climbing, and yoga can be adapted for kids with limited mobility and facilities are accessible.

Toddler camps are very similar to Snuggly Seal Movement classes. Kids under 2.5 attend at a discounted rate and siblings under 15 months are free.
Toddler camps are less structured with opportunities for children to interact with equipment in more of an "invitation to play" environment. Group songs and turn taking activities are scattered throughout the morning to provide tot-sized doses of attention building skills.
Families are welcome to play all morning, snuggle up in the cozy corner, or leave early. You can judge what will be best for your little one and play it by ear!
Our youngest toddlers start developing pre-climbing motor skills. Crawlers and early walkers start to traverse, down climb, balance, and listen to cues. The majority of this camp takes place on soft play equipment and sensory stations with less time spent on the vertical climbing walls.
Ongoing classes will be on hiatus over the summer. Spring students can choose to remain in the same class for the fall or request a new time/day if available. Camps, intensives, and drop in classes will be available during this time.
