Summer Camp at Black Bear Academy Chicago Private 18 months through Alumni

F.A.Q. | What are Centers?

A parent asks: We are looking at your Summer Camp Program. What are Centers?

Centers are themed based, age appropriate activities during Summer Camp! Camp classes rotate around 4 or 5 Centers throughout the school to engage in specific activities. These activities will change each “Center” day and include anything from art, science, technology, fine arts, outdoor play, math, gross motor games or cooking!  The Center activities will relate to the theme of the week in a fun, hands on, experiential way!
