Summer camps still have space

Posted by Kate Bergman on May 28th, 2010

It may not feel like summer’s coming up fast, but in less than a month the kids will be out of school. Looking to fill some of those long structure-less days with a camp or two? Some popular local camps still have space available.

Seattle Tilth sent us this notice:

Seattle Tilth is offering exciting camps throughout the summer where kids 1-14 years old can explore the fascinating world of insects, plants and flowers, while learning how to work together to grow a vibrant garden. Fun themes rotate each session that engage all of the senses such as Critter Crazy!, Ladybug Picnic, Slimy Creatures, Flower Mania and Mad Garden Science. Designed for maximum fun and learning, typical sessions include garden adventures, edible plant tasting, a garden craft, stories, games and songs. This is a unique opportunity for the young people in your life!

Registration is still open, but camps fill quickly. Sign up now! Find out more information and download a registration form on our website.

Also housed at Good Shepherd Center is Neo Art School, which offers half- and full-day camps for kids ages 6 to 12.

Your work may include ceramics, drawing, painting, paper mache, batik, collage, paper making, bookbinding, printmaking, sculpture, or creative projects using recycled materials. Students work on different projects each day, building skills and patience as they take art ideas from concept to creation.

Your child has a flair for the dramatic and enjoys the outdoors? Perhaps check out Stone Soup Theatre’s summer camp, which meets at the gazebo in Meridian Park. They offer such themes as “Super Hero Camp,” “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and “Dr. Seuss’ Storyland” for ages 3 to 13.

Want longer camp sessions for your kids? It’s a little further afield, but the UW offers camps for elementary through high school students, and they still have space in some of their programs.

Know of other local camps that have space for this summer? We’d love to hear about them!
