Bienvenidos a Camp Chiqui! We are so excited to get off the screens and be a little less scheduled this summer! Chiqui summer camp is available to kids ages 5 – 8 and will run from June 14th – August 20th. Camp hours will be 9 am – 3 pm. Aftercare until 4 PM available. For our younger group, ages 3 – 5, please visit our PRESCHOOL program at our new location.
At Chiqui Social, the safety and well-being of your child is our number one priority. We will continue to follow all CDC guidelines and all protocols set forth by the city and state including mask-wearing, small groups, and hand washing. Because of our limited capacity, we encourage everyone who wants to sign up for summer camp to do so quickly, as we anticipate filling up fast. You can sign up now and we will invoice you. This summer, pods will be 10 campers with two counselors. Chiqui has been safely and successfully running multiple pods for the last 10 months, and we feel this model will best serve the physical and mental well-being of our campers and community. We will be doing most activities outside, and campers will be required to bring their lunch and a full water bottle to camp. Frequent water/mask breaks will occur while keeping campers socially distant and hydrated.
Chiqui sessions require a 2-week minimum commitment. We feel this will give campers a greater opportunity to play safely together in their pod, while allowing them to forge deeper connections with their friends and counselors. A negative Covid Test may be required prior to each camper beginning his/her session.
Chiqui Social Spanish Immersion camp will focus on communication, conversation, and good old summertime fun! Chiquitos, both native and non-native Spanish speakers, will learn together. Confidence will grow as word structure, vocabulary, and pronunciation lead to increased Spanish language fluency.
Chiqui campers will engage in hands-on projects as we deliver on our core pillars of Culinary Arts, Music, Science, and Creative Arts while also incorporating sports, movement, and Spanish conversation games. This summer, we will also incorporate some time for academics in the form of journal writing, reading and math. Summer camp creates positive social interactions and a lasting impact on their confidence and creativity as chiquitos learn about people, each other, cultural diversity, and our world. Summer camp also incorporates daily nature walks and playtime at the park.
