WEEK OF DISCOVERY
Welcome to Ethical Culture's Week of Discovery Camp
Pre-K–4th Grade | JUNE 20–23
Week of Discovery is an exciting program filled with age-appropriate activities for children in Pre-K–4th Grade. The program takes full advantage of the gymnasiums and rooftop playground as well as the closeness of Central Park.
Throughout the week, children investigate themes incorporated into art, science, and nature activities and share their discoveries with each other. These themes are expanded in other activities, including sports, games, music, movement, storytelling, drama, and cooking. Under the supervision of experienced counselors, children also go on a special outing such as the Central Park zoo trip. Although each child is part of a smaller peer group of similar ages, every child is also a member of the larger group. This gives each child a different and special kind of social and learning experience. Children have fun, exciting days, but there is always time for relaxation, reflection, and individual pursuits.
