Parents, don’t worry about packing a snack in case your kids get hungry throughout the day. At Shine we provide a morning and afternoon snack for everyone, everyday.
Who says you can’t have fun and learn at the same time? Each week at Shine your child will get to choose one of our engaging elective classes. Past electives include: Art explosion, cartoon drawing, Pom Pon, STOMP, Culture Exploration, Unicycling, Lacrosse, Fun with Foods, Book Club, Tech Madness, Photography, Gymnastics and many more!
It’s easy to forget about school during the summer, but at Shine we are passionate about making sure your child is ready for the fall. From fun math, science, and English worksheets, to educational games and interactive technology, your child’s brain will stay engaged
Summers weren’t meant to be experienced from inside a building. At Shine we provide outside activity stations that are ALWAYS available for the kids. Favorite stations from last year include gaga ball, tetherball, volleyball, nine square in the air, and can jam.
Every Friday afternoon we pop popcorn, set up a giant concession stand with tons of candy, pop, and prizes and we wind down the week by watching a movie together. The kids will use key rings that they have earned throughout the week for good behavior as currency to buy items from the concession stand.
This Summer we are partnering with Professor Kevin the Crazy Chemist. Each morning at day camp Professor K will use crazy science experiments to help us understand some of the AMAZING transformations that take place all around us. At the same time, he will also guide us as we take a look at how God can transform us from the inside out.
We are excited to partner with MOD Pizza, in Northville, to offer a Friday lunch option. Each week your kids can build their own pizza (6” or 11”) with as many toppings as they’d like because at MOD Pizza, toppings don’t cost extra! Each meal deal will come with a MOD pizza, bag of chips, and a drink. (6” pizza deal: $5.50) (11” pizza deal: $7.50)
Want to keep your child active in math this Summer? We are excited to partner with Mathnasium, in Northville, to provide an exclusive math mind workout program for day campers this summer! This special program will concentrate on introducing and practicing concepts that will be covered in the upcoming school year. Sessions for this program occur Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Shine Day Camp and the cost is $65 a week.
Every Tuesday afternoon our friend, Dan the Kona man, will stop by day camp for a one of a kind shaved ice experience for our afternoon snack. Kids will get to choose from the many delicious flavors available and dance to the island music as they enjoy their shaved ice! No extra cost for kids to participate.
