bring the kids to Play Garden during summer break

Running out of ideas for summer activities? Bring the kids to Play Garden for fun-filled summer camps.

It’s summer camp season at Play Garden!

We’ve organized our weekly camps to be flexible so you can sign up for the days and times that work best for your family—be it several weeks, select days or even just a few hours at a time.

Each week will offer a different learning theme and every day will start a new, fun-filled lesson plan.

Here’s what we have in store for the 2014 summer break:

June 9th – 13th: CRAFT CAMP

We’ll fill your child’s days with artistic activities, creative crafting and inspiration. This camp includes painting, mosaics, handmade jewelry, collages and sculpting. Each day children will have a directed project as well as an open art lab to let the creativity flow.

June 16th – 20th: MAD SCIENCE

Science is fun and functional! This camp will show children the wonders of science and exploration while they learn through our interactive and hands-on science activities. Campers will participate in experiments and enhance their creativity by learning how to make hypotheses, draw conclusions and problem solve.
June 23rd – 27th: TREE HUGGER

“The Giving Tree” is not only a great book—it’s a great lesson for children, too. This week we will appreciate our beautiful Lowcountry and all that nature offers us. Children will create leaf prints, make recycled crafts, craft unique art from nature, and understand simple and fun ways to go green in order to be protectors of our planet Earth!

June 30th – July 3th: USA HORRAY!!

Join us to celebrate our independence and the beauty of our country. Campers will make patriotic crafts, learn songs, create a parade and be red, white, and blue through and through!
July 7th – 11th: GREEN THUMB

Let your gardens grow with the help of your own little farmers! Campers will learn about planting from seeds, different types of gardens and how to compost. Your child will even bring home a plant for the garden.
July 14th – 18th: SPECTACULAR SPACE

Outer space holds a fascination for kids of all ages. Campers will blast off in a rocket ship of fun during a week of creating space shuttles, exploring our planets, pretending to walk on the moon and learning about our solar system.
July 21st – 25th: SEA, SAND, SURF in SOUTH CAROLINA

Summer time is beach time! Campers will do surf crafts, participate in surf yoga, dance to the Beach Boys, learn about local beaches, create sand/shell art work and so much more. Come sandy from the beach or put your hands in the sand at Play Garden!
July 28th – August 1st: STAR WARS CAMP

Whether your child is an Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Princess Leia or Boba Fett lover, they will love getting into character and being part of another galaxy. This kid-friendly Star Wars Camp will inspire children through games, trivia, LEGOS, arts and crafts, friendship building and so much more. Campers will enjoy the ever-expanding universe of Star Wars beyond the movies!
August 4th – 8th: ECO EXPLORERS

Get ready to REDUCE, REUSE, & RECYCLE during this environmental activist camp. This week campers will learn about sustainability, water conservation, and easy ways to make a positive impact on planet Earth. Creative crafts, interactive lessons, group projects, and recycled building will fill the week with learning and inspiration.
August 11th – 15th: GLOBE TROTTERS

Pack your travel bags and get ready to travel the world this week. Our Globe Trotters camp will explore the different countries, languages, foods, traditions, and lands that make up our beautiful planet. Beyond geography and globe fun, campers will construct their own bucket list of places they hope to visit in their travels ahead!
Children can stay beyond the normal four-hour limit when camps are in session. And when the camp day ends, your child can stay at Play Garden until you’re ready for pick up, with extended nights and weekends available throughout the summer at normal hourly rates.
