Camp Discovery: Pete the Cat Week
Let’s have a groovy time each day with Pete the Cat. Our days will be full of stories, songs, games, activities and crafts from Pete’s famous picture books. Our inspiration will be taken from Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes, Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons, Pete the Cat and the New Guy, Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes as well as other Pete the Cat books. We will end the week with a fun water day on the playground. It’s all good!

Problem-solvers and puzzlers unite! We will work on jigsaw puzzles, complete scavenger hunts, and find the correct pathway in “human maze”. We will also get crafty, making our own puzzles and creating our own board games! This camp combines problem-solving and creativity. We will make paper airplanes and test them, seeing what makes the airplanes fly farthest, highest, or fastest. After crafting we will break up our day by getting up to dance and move to Go Noodle games.
