5 Easy Ways To Plan for a Successful Summer Camp

My Center Directors and I planned for a successful Summer Camp back in March 2023 and It was so exciting. We planned our weekly theme, fun Friday events and fieldtrips. 

Are you planning to have a Camp this Summer? If so, now is the perfect time to start marketing your Camp.

However, if you have been too busy to market your camp; it’s never to late to start today!

The summer time is a great season for the business of Child Care. In fact, school-age children are out of school and parents need a fun and enriching place for their children to be.

Today I want to share with you 5 easy ways to market your summer camp:

1. Create a festive Flyer about your camp on your computer and share it as a reel on socialmedia. Be sure to include the dates of the camp, events along with field trip information. Include a registration form with the flyer.

2. Start Marketing your Summer Camp now On Your Social Media Pages; using summer related images that include a link to your website or your phone number.

3. If you own a center, display Summer Camp banners on your playground fence or in your windows. (If allowed in your municipality)

4. Send flyers and information to families that attended your camp in previous years.

5. Plan lots of fun theme based activities along with field trips and be sure to market all that you have planned for your camp! 

6. Market your camp on your website and provide downloadable camp forms! ** be sure to disclose Covid 19 precautions.

Much Success to you!

Creating A Classroom Space That Inspires Learning

I believe that the classroom environment is the #1 teacher. In fact, children learn best when they have an environment where they are provided with lots of hands-on-activities that includes: exploring, discovering, problem solving and questioning.

Are you doing most of the teaching? If so, today I want to inspire you to create a classroom space that does most of the teaching and that inspires Learning.

1. De-clutter: Children learn best in an organized environment. If it does not belong in your class, remove it. Think about how you feel when there is clutter on your desk? If your answer was overwhelmed; that’s how children feel in a cluttered environment. Be sure that your classroom space is always organized, with the exception of playtime!

2. Set-up or Makeover Your Learning Centers: Toddlers, School-age and Preschool-age children  need clearly defined play areas. Having centers, provides the children with a variety of activities to explore in small groups. Check out the attached article: click here

3. Create a Literacy Enriched Environment:  According to Early childhood News, “In a well-established and well-organized classroom, there should be print everywhere!” This includes: Labeling toy containers, having a word wall, lots of books and so much more. Discover how to create a literacy enriched environment today, click here.

After you makeover your classroom space, expect positive feedback from parents. In fact, parents love an organized, literacy enriched and educational environment for their children.

That’s all for now and I think it is time for you to get to work on your classroom space!

I would love to hear from you, be sure to leave your comment below.
