This year summer camp at Cocoons is going to look a little different. After many years of teaching year round, Miss Laura, Miss Peggy, Miss Stephanie, and Miss Sandy are going to take a much needed break. To date, this year there will be no environmental summer camp at Cocoons during the weeks of July 12-16 or August 8-16 but the other three summer camp weeks are going to be AWESOME!!
We are thrilled to be able to announce that this year Cocoons is partnering with The Ecology School, formerly known as Ferry Beach Ecology School when our very own Miss Laura was part of their staff, located in Saco Maine. The Ecology School staff will be offering camps for children ages 4-11 during the weeks of July 5-8, July 25-29, and August 1-5. Lot and lots of research went into partnering at our precious school. We sought out only programs that matched our philosophy and enthusiasm for teaching young children about the environment. Some of Miss Laura’s good friends will be the summer camp teachers. These teachers will provide exciting extensions of environmental learning that takes place at Cocoons during the academic year. Of course Miss Sandy will be at school the first Monday of every session to meet and greet and introduce our Cocooners to her friends from the Ecology School.
We would like to invite you to visit www.TheEcologySchool.org
to learn lots more about this wonderful school and their programs. We have shared The Ecology School’s Mission statement and Philosophy below. The Ecology School is working hard to offer organized activities that will fill your child’s summer days with fun experiential outdoor learning and lots of laughter.
Registration will begin online during the second week in March just like Cocoons camp registration has been for the past several years. We anticipate that these camp weeks will fill up very quickly! The Ecology School will be providing a link for registration in the very near future along with more detailed information about their programs at Cocoons. We’ll be sure to keep you posted every step of the way!!
