Spring Break Camps (April 3 & 4, 2017)
The Early Childhood Chickadee Break Camps are offered to all Cedarwood Early Childhood Students Pre-K through Kindergarten.
These days are modeled to follow a rhythm that supports the young child in an imaginative and creative way that resembles our daily rhythm of our early childhood program.
Each day lovingly nourishes the child's developing coordination, cooperation and creativity. Your child will enjoy days filled with singing, crafting, story-telling, and a delicious nutritious snack with plenty of time for indoor and outdoor free playtime.
Our early childhood camps are taught by our dedicated assistants in one of our beautiful early childhood classrooms.
The Woodland Adventures Break Camp program is offered to Cedarwood students grades 1-5. We will be exploring the natural wonders of the great outdoors as well as deepening our play experience through group games and crafts.
Each day is a new adventure!
Examples of field trip outings include walking trips to Marquam Nature Park, OHSU’s aerial tram, the South Waterfront, and the Tillikum Crossing. Each of these areas is within walking distance from school.
WHAT TO BRING: A hearty lunch, morning and afternoon snack, water bottle, back pack, extra pair of clothing, seasonally appropriate outdoor clothing (i.e. rain gear, sun block, hat, etc.).
Outdoor field trips vary and are determined based on season and weather-related factors. Parents are provided detailed information regarding off-site adventures.

Parents are required to initial the sign-out sheet at the end of each camp day. Please inform the instructor in the morning if pick-up will be handled by anyone other than you. We will not release students to strangers.
