Please note, Catch Us If You Can Summer Camp is a concept developed by Nancy Brophy, Director of Tom Thumb Preschool. Nancy has created a new program that's a blend of summer camp and enrichment program to achieve "a Fun Learning Experience". Her program uses "the power of play as the overarching mechanism to explore, discover and learn. It contains what you would expect from a summer camp and a lot more.


Make Summertime Count

Nancy makes summertime count by providing enrichment in science, arts, sports, and crafts ,as well as, an emphasis on social skill development. She believes camp can be an effective child development tool, because children are spending most of their time having fun and don't realize learning is happening.


Summertime is to Recharge and Unwind

Summertime is an important break from school and a change in mind-set to recharge and unwind, to forget about school and have fun with outdoor activities and play. Our Catch Us If You Can Summer Camp is designed to support this summertime mind-set.

 

Our camp focused on fun first with different age appropriate activities. These activities ranging from science, arts & crafts, stage performances, sing-a-longs, board games, sports, street games to just spending time for children to relax and hang around. Our new summer camp program is NOT a summer school, but a fun day-camp with an integrated planned agenda and provides enrichment in many different areas.


What's the difference between "Catch Us If You Can" and other camps?

The difference is our unique enrichment program and full equipped camp that uses of the extensive facilities of the Tom Thumb Campus. Our camp is brand new and is created to work with our large campus. Catch Us If You Can Summer Camp is an enrichment oriented camp that uses arts and crafts, games and recreational activities to foster the improvement of social and learning skills under the guidance of experienced teachers. Our camp is not just for preschooler but for children from 3 1/2 through 9 years old.
