CONFERENCE WEEK CAMP TAKES PLACE AT WIllow!
Students will meet our Growing Outdoors staff at the snack tables at the center of campus. We’ll take attendance and walk together over to the lunch tables for a supervised lunch. Students will be grouped by similar grade level and will have an opportunity to meet some new friends that also go to Willow!
What is Conference Week Camp?
During the week of conferences, families expressed how hard it can be to have several short school days in a row. Growing Outdoors wanted to find a way to help to solve this problem. Created with the same principles as our After-School Enrichment program, Conference Week Camp is designed to give children an opportunity to develop their 21st century skills like critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.
How Is It Different?
Starting with the structure, Conference Week Camp is exactly that; a week long, camp-style program where students are grouped by similar grade levels. Each group will be assigned at least two Growing Outdoors counselors, and together they will go from activity to activity together. Starting with some name games to help the students get to know each other, students will have a chance to build friendships, while having fun, with the guidance of our exceptionally trained staff members!

FAQs & Things You Need To Know
What kinds of activities will my child be doing?
We have lots of fun camp-style activities planned! These activities may include field games, blacktop games, gaga, carom games, arts and crafts, science, drama games, mini golf, nature projects, sports, and more!
What about lunch?
Great question! After school gets out at 12:16 and before our program begins, students should come to the lunch tables to eat their lunch they brought from home; Growing Outdoors staff will supervise during this time. At 12:45 our staff will gather their group of students, and then the fun starts! For our Kindergarten students, our staff will supervise their lunch at 11:30am when they get out of school.
All students who buy lunch at school will still be able to do so.
Will my child be grouped by their grade?
Yes. We find that children play at different levels partially based on their grade. Knowing that a 1st grader is likely to play basketball at a different level than 5th grader, we group students together so they will be with others in the same or similar grades.
What happens if my child goes to the YMCA?
At 3:00pm, after our program ends, Growing Outdoors staff will walk those children enrolled at the YMCA to the appropriate location and release them to the care of their staff.
