List of 2 items.

  • Kindergarten Adventure (for students entering kindergarten)

    Description: Kindergarten Adventure is an educational and fun-filled full-day program, taught by Lower School teachers and carefully designed with the needs and developmental considerations of our youngest campers in mind. Campers will engage in activities including arts and crafts, storytelling, imaginative play, games, athletics, and much more. Participants must be entering Kindergarten at Buckley in Fall 2021.
    Program Hours: 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
  • Academic Intensive & Griffin Camp (for students entering grades 1-5)

    Description: The summer academic intensive program is intended to replicate how language arts and mathematics are taught during the normal school year.  In language arts, students will participate in daily writing workshop and reading workshop. Additionally, students in younger grades (entering first and second grade) will spend time focusing on phonemic awareness and letter-sound association activities while students in the older grades (entering third through fifth grade) will spend time focusing on grammatical construction and vocabulary. Both programs will strengthen reading skills and literacy development. Mathematics instruction will feature Math in Focus and the Singapore Math program, replicating, supplementing, and enhancing how mathematics is taught during the regular school year.
    The second part of the day is meant for fun. Students will have lunch then reconnect with their grade level group for fun camp rotations. Summer camp rotations could include musical theatre, sports, outdoor group games, robotics, technology, makerspace, visual arts, dance, improv, etc. Each week will have different rotations. Rotations will be scheduled each week by the director of summer camp. Grade level groups will travel with a counselor to each rotation. Pool time/swim is not an option in the afternoon this summer. The tentative schedule is below. 

    Our programs are offered to current and incoming Buckley families only.
    Please Note: Academic Intensive & Griffin Camp is a full-day program. As they are a package deal, we will not prorate the morning session and/or the afternoon session.
