With our rich curriculum and amazing outdoor classroom space, IPCP’s Nature in the City Summer Camp is sure to bring your child a summer full of discovery, fun, and friendship! Campers will spend their days exploring our outdoor classrooms, engaging in learning activities, and playing in nature. Nature in the City Summer Camp offers varied and unique session themes, along with special visitors designed to enhance the learning experience.
All weeks of preschool camp are full. To be added to the waitlist for any camp weeks, complete the application and select the weeks you want your child to attend. IPCP staff will notify you if a space opens up for these weeks.
Each session theme is offered twice in the summer. Choose from some or all of the themes with a variety of activities planned for each session.
Session 1: Storybook Adventures
May 28-31 (Tues-Fri) & June 24-28
Let those imaginations soar and join the journey into the rich world of stories! Each day will center around a different beloved children's book as we launch into activities, songs, and dramatic play inspired by the illustrations, characters, and storyline! Special programming during this session may include a musical storytelling sing-a-long and a visit from a puppeteer!
Session 2: Animal Explorers
June 3-7 & July 8-12
Calling all animal lovers! Using games, stories, and animal encounters, we will explore animal life from the farm to the forest! Our school chickens and guinea pig will be active partners in our learning and play. Special programming may include visits from the Little Red Barn Mobile Petting Zoo and the Chattahoochee Nature Center.
Session 3: Wonderful and Wacky Water
June 10-14 & July 15-19
Water, water, everywhere! Let’s splash, play, and enjoy the many amazing aspects of water! Through experiments, pipe and funnel play, and more, we will investigate water in both solid and liquid form. These weeks will include one day of full body water play requiring swimwear. Special programming may include a bubble experience and a visit from King of Pops.
Session 4: Marvelous Machines
June 17-21 & July 22-26
Whirl, zip, beep! Curiosity and hands on problem solving come together as campers delve into the exciting world of machines.
