Themes

Throughout the summer, campers will participate in a variety of activities including STEAM (science, math, technology, arts & engineering), creative expression, field trips, outdoor fun, weekly swimming and academic experiences to curb summer learning loss.

Jump Kick: Health & Wellness

Being healthy and staying active is a skill that benefits children throughout their life. Campers will learn about  nutrition, wellness and exercise through hands on activities such as planning the camp menu and participating in yoga and exercise classes.  Field trips include Ames Farmer’s Market, local grocery stores, Jack Trice Stadium and Cardinal Gymnastics.

 

“Hooray for Ames”:  Government, Community Resources and Structures

We love it in the city of Ames!  Campers will explore how city government works, the roles of various occupations within Ames and how Iowa State University contributes to our community dynamic.  Field Trips visits to Police Station, City Hall, Main Street Businesses, Resource Recovery Center, Ames Water Treatment Plant, Iowa Department of Transportation, Ames Historical Society and Iowa State University.

 

Sensational Science:  Life, Physical and Social Sciences

Campers will experience learning about plants, animals and the environment through various STEAM activities.  Field Trips include visits to the ISU Horse Barns, Reiman Gardens, Ames Greenhouses, Plucky Paws, ISU Insect Zoo and Blank Park Zoo or Science Center.

Swim Days and Swim Pass Information

Groups will be divided into grades (depending on numbers):  1st & 2nd graders, 2nd & 3rd graders and 3rd-5th graders

Once registration is complete, we will place the children into groups and swim days will be set.

The 1st & 2nd graders will swim once a week and 2nd-5th graders will swim twice a week.

Please purchase an individual or family swim pass for full time children.  If weekly or part time, you can send money on swim days.  Swim passes are available for purchase at City of Ames (515 Clark).  Through May 1, passes purchased will receive a 10% discount.

 

Meals

ACPC will provide breakfast and snack every day.  All campers will need to bring a sack lunch (which is non-microwaveable) Monday-Friday.  Milk will be provided every day for lunch.

 

Reading Buddies

Free 6 week summer tutoring program provides one-to-one literacy support for children who have completed kindergarten through third grade.
