WK Summer Camp

About Whittier Kids’ Summer Camp

PNA Whittier Kids (WK) Summer Camp offers weekly camps for kids entering Kindergarten – 6th grade this Fall. A typical day at a WK camp may include team projects, free choice stations, outside and/or gym play, a special assembly, and hearty snacks. We strive to provide a safe, inclusive, and fun space where all kids feel welcome and valued.

WK is located onsite at Whittier Elementary School, 1320 NW 75th Street, Seattle 98117. All kids entering K-6th grade in the Fall are welcome! Enrollment in camp is not limited to Whittier Elementary students. Incoming Kinders must be four years old and independent bathroom users before their first camp session.

This summer Whittier Kids is offering ten sessions of camps: June 25th – August 29th. Camp core hours are 8:30 am – 3:00 pm, with optional extended care until 5:30 pm.

Whittier Kids is licensed and monitored through the Department of Children, Youth and Families and voluntarily participates in Schools Out Washington’s program quality initiative. Decisions regarding curriculum goals and staff practices are guided by program assessment tools, as well as PNA’s mission and values.

 

Summer Camp Highlights

Kid-approved weekly themes are the basis of group and individual projects. These activities support our curriculum goals: promoting social, leadership, and teambuilding skills. WK campers have teamed up to host carnivals, hold craft fairs, put on talent shows, and compete in silly sporting events.

Each camp session includes active play time in the school gym, playground, and at a local park. Weekly assemblies may include presentations and/or performances from special guests.

 

Free choice station time is built into the daily schedule. Age appropriate games ranging from Candy Land to D&D, art materials, pretend play props, sports equipment, books, and building manipulatives are all accessible during station time. Station materials are rotated frequently based on our campers’ interests and engagement.

Optional extended care is offered until 5:30 pm. Families can register for extended care by the week. There is an add-on option for adding extended care for every weekly session. Extended care is a fun mixture of outdoor activities, stations, and skill-building activities.
