“Welcome to Camp Week” Blog Recap!

Welcome to the 2018 Park Prep Academy Summer Camp Blog! Updated every Friday afternoon, the Summer Camp Blog provides parents and students with an in-depth description of each day of camp complete with photographs and videos! The following entry details all of the exciting events that took place during “Welcome to Camp Week”. Read on below to learn all about the fun that was had and learning that took place!


Hello all,

The 2018 Park Prep Academy Summer Camp began this week with “Welcome to Camp Week” and boy, are we off to a great start! The students did not waste any time getting right back into the swing of things! As is always the case when summer camp begins, the returning students welcomed a new wave of campers into the group. The teachers were so impressed to see how warmly the returning students welcomed their new friends showing them the ropes and even lending a helping hand when needed! After a large group introduction during morning meeting on Thursday and Friday, the students headed off to their morning activity stations. Working in small groups around the room, the students explored the classroom before being called over to the art table to add a colorful design to the back of their PPA Summer Camp T-shirt! The artwork on the backs of these shirts will certainly help the PPA kids stand out as they head on all of the field trips this summer!



On Friday morning, the students greeted their new (and old) friends once again and then created a beautiful and colorful painting at the art easel for the second Art Day of camp!



During the first two afternoons of “Welcome to Camp Week”, the students discussed and role-played the rules of camp. Part of the discussion included Playground and Field Trip Safety. The students practiced wearing pinnies and walking on the rope. They did such a great job, it was clear they are ready to enjoy the beautiful playground and park this summer!

Well, that wraps up the first few days of camp! The 2018 PPA Summer Camp is bound to be the best one yet! As always, thank you for reading. Have a fun and safe weekend!
