Hi folks - my kids are doing this camp this summer if you are interested.
Quoting "Melrose, Carolyn" <Carolyn.Melrose@...
> We are currently registering children for another Summer Camp Coop
> at All Souls Church, 1500 Harvard ST NW, this time with a formal
> Spanish immersion component! This program is brought to you by a
> group of volunteer parents in the neighborhood. In addition to our
> teacher, Ana Maria, we staff one
> parent(or care giver) per three children each day.
> Information about the program:
> 1) Summer Coop camp is held at All Souls Unitarian Church at
> Harvard and 16th Streets. Each session can accommodate 18 kids.
> 2) The program will be offered to children who are 2 (or turning 2
> before July 30, 2010) up to 5 years old.
> 3) We still have space available in sessions 1, 3 and 4. You are
> welcome to select any/all of these four sessions.
> 2 week sessions, 4 days per week (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs) 10:30am - 1:30pm
> Session #1: 6/28-7/9 – one more big kid spot (ages 3-5)(this might
> be spoken for though)
> Session #2: 7/12-7/23 - SOLD OUT - waitlist available
> Session #3: 7/26 -8/6 – 2 more big kid spots (ages 3-5)>
> Session #4: 8/9-8/20 slots for all ages available.
> 4) Additional play time at the church's playground is available for
> an hour following camp each day. If you chose to take advantage of
> this, you need to be onsite to supervise your own children as duty
> parents and our teacher are "off" at 1:30pm.
> 5) Kids will eat lunch daily during the program; parents need to
> supply packed lunches/drinks.
> 6) The program's teacher (Ana Maria) will conduct a Spanish
> immersion program in the summer Coop. Erin White (a parent and fellow
> coordinator of this program)is also fluent in Spanish and will
> coordinate with Anna Maria to plan language learning activities and
> schedule other fluent parents in order to work toward a goal of
> Spanish Immersion.
> 7) Due to the costs of renting the space and hiring the teacher,
> once you sign up for your particular session(s), you are committed
> to pay for the program regardless of your actual participation
> (unless a substitute can be found and payment secured). The cost
> for the sessions is as follows - Session 1 $70; Sessions 2-4 $78 each.
> 8) Co-op coverage: We will aim for a 3:1 minimum ratio. You should
> each expect a duty day approximately once a week (per child).
> 9) Formal registration includes completing Emergency Forms. Parents
> can add "approved duty persons" on their Emergency Form to help with
> coverage days (i.e., if you have nanny or grandparent who wants to
> cover your duty days or a grandparent who is interested, they can
> cover your duty days).
> To sign up now, please email
> Carolyn.Melrose@...<mailto:Carolyn.Melrose@...> with the
> age/name of your child(ren) and sessions you wish to participate in.
> Carolyn will confirm availability with you regarding your requested
> sessions, and will email you payment instructions and required forms.
