PHENOMENAL BOYS AND GIRLS
SUMMER CAMP PROGRAMS
Self Awareness and Self Development
Campers demonstrate an understanding, friendliness, adaptability, empathy, and politeness in group settings. Campers examine, clarify and apply positive values and ethical principles. Build self-esteem by discovering their unique abilities and characteristics. Develop positive attitudes toward themselves and their community.
Through self-development, Campers will be taught the importance of self-awareness. They will be engaging in “get to know me” activities that start the summer off right helping every camper to make, new friends, memories, and fun. Campers will develop a five-year plan for their life and also create a vision board.
"You have to know what sparks the light in you so that you,
in your own way, can illuminate the world."
Exploring The Imagination Through Arts
Campers will dive into an array of artistic activities that foster intellectual development. Through the Arts, Campers will use their creativity to plan, design and construct an idea. They will experiment with forms, lines, movements, shapes and spatial relationships. Campers will learn science and math skills as they manipulate materials. The arts will help campers learn and develop important characteristics they will need as adults:
Improved Academic Performance.
“The ability and capacity of our young people to imagine and create their futures will determine our future as a nation, including how richly we experience that future. We must value creativity and foster it in every conceivable way.”
– Dr. Peter Hackett, President and CEO, Alberta Ingenuity
Coding, STEM, Robotics
When children are introduced to coding they gain an appreciation of how digital technology works.
Coding also called programming is a skill that children could
use for a future career in a world that is driven by technology and codes. With our coding and digital literacy program, campers will develop critical thinking skills and establish a more logical mindset. Campers will develop creativity, problem-solving, teamwork, presentation skills, resilience, empathy, and much more.
“Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think."
Music and Dance
Music has a great impact on a child’s development.
Music introduced to a child at an early age prepares a child
for school readiness: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy.
Music improves academic and physical skills. It cultivates social skills and refines discipline and patience. It boosts self-esteem
and introduces children to other cultures.
Campers will explore different genres of music as well as explore different instruments. Campers that plays a musical instrument
will be given the opportunity to bring their personal instrument to camp and play for their peers.
Campers will explore a variety of activities that are musically
base and engage in a variety of dances. Dancing melts the stress away. It improves children’s social skills and enables them to communicate better, learn teamwork, cooperation, and help them make new friends.
"We can’t always choose the music life plays for us, but we can choose how we dance to it.”
Healthy Nutrition and Exercise
Campers will be exploring how healthy eating and exercise are like two peas in pod. They will be discussing the importance of healthy nutrition and how it works in the body. Why nutrition is important. Eating a balanced diet is vital for good health and wellbeing. Food provides our bodies with the energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals to live, grow and function properly. Campers will be given the opportunity to prepare healthy snacks. They will also be participating in activities that build strength promote strong bones, muscles and good posture, improve the ability to lift and maneuver objects and obstacles and enhance healthy growth and development as they learn the health benefits of exercise and keeping physically fit.
“He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything.”
– Arabian Proverb
When I Grow Up
Campers will explore different career opportunities. We will have guests from different occupations, sharing about their career journey and life on the job. Campers will be taking a look at colleges and universities to find out what the requirements are to attend. We will be discussing resumes and things that should be on a resume. Campers will create their first resume.
“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
Around the World in Five Days
There are tremendous benefits when we can get outside of our comfort zone and experience another culture and people. It builds confidence and empathy and strengthens our sense of self while at the same time helping us to feel connected to others. Hop aboard and join us on an adventure of a lifetime, campers will explore different cultures and countries. Be sure to have your passport and get ready for an international ADVENTURE!
“The beauty of the world lies in the diversity of its people.”
Going Down Memory Lane
Campers will relive their most memorable moments as the summer months come to an end. Campers will share what they enjoyed the most about being apart of the Phenomenal Boys and Girls Club Summer Camp.
“Sometimes a short walk down memory lane is all it takes to appreciate where you are TODAY.”
There will be a scheduled weekly field trip as part of your phenomenal camper’s summer camp. Parents will be required to sign a consent form and return that form before the scheduled field trip. Campers participating in the field trips are expected to bring the necessary items.
