Summer Day Camp
During the summer months of June, July and August, A Star Is Rising switches to our Summer Fun Program. The program is designed to illustrate the difference between the school year and the summer months. While we continue to review our academics in the traditional sense, we also introduce learning in a more casual atmosphere through the use of special events.
The children are presented with new experiences utilizing the variation of our neighborhood. Some of these services include pizza making at Not Just Bagels & Pizza, visits to our local supermarket Stop & Shop, and theatre performances of our favorite books at the Bergen Performing Arts Center Theatre. Walking and bus field trips add to our learning which include Field Station: Dinosaurs, museums, zoos, farms and the local library for story time and projects. Visiting guests are on the venue creating an exciting mixture.
The children have the option to participate in swim lessons at a local pool located in New Milford. In addition to formal lessons, the program includes the importance of water safety. All of these programs plus an array of extra-curriculum offered through the summer makes for an exciting fun-filled place to be.
