Lively Little Learners: An Early Reading & Art Exploration Camp for Kids Ages 4-5

RRLS offers both its pre-reading and art programs, Alpha-Mania™ and Mini-Masters™, in a 9AM – 2PM camp called Lively Little Learners.


The day camp begins with Alpha-Mania™, a theme based pre-reading program, where children explore the alphabet and learn to love their letters. Grounded in phonological awareness activities and taught through songs, movement, and crafts, the week is structured around a theme so children learn the joy of language while pretending they are in space, on a pirate ship, or exploring the rainforest. The themes and activities relate directly to the Letter of the Day, so children learn seamlessly while engrossed in Alpha-Mania™ fun that not only boosts their pre-reading skills, but prepares them for a classroom environment.



After lunch, children explore the world’s great artists in Mini Masters™. Inspired by the inner creativity in all children, Mini Masters™ is an opportunity to delve into the minds and techniques of the world’s great artists, from Da Vinci to Henri Matisse to Georgia O’Keeffe. Once inspired by the artist of the week, our “mini masters” create their own dynamic pieces of art, which could include painting, sculpture, media arts and murals. Children are introduced to the idea that behind every great piece of art stands a great artist.
