WEEKDAYS Alki Outdoor Summer Camp

Let's get outside for outdoor learning this summer! This is a weekly outdoor focused early childhood education program for the summer. The "home base" is a schoolhouse cottage two buildings away from Alki Elementary but the learning happens outside this summer. Students will spend time away from screens, learning in Schmitz Park, practicing the skills to lay the groundwork for the future as well as having a lot of fun. Through structured and unstructured learning and play, the goal is to gain skills that ultimately help them learn to read, write, build their math and science skills, and become successful, lifelong learners. We take safety seriously: masks required for all campers and staff, daily health screening and temperature checks and of course, small micro-class groups each week.
