The Teaching Tee-Pee
At West Hills Day Camp, we believe that our 3 to 6 year old campers greatly benefit from this amazing literacy program. The Teaching Tee-Pee takes our campers on an adventure through literature by getting the children to appreciate, talk about and understand various award winning stories throughout the summer.
For our youngest readers, the books come alive as the children create their own crafts which are based on each new story. We continue weekly with the theme of the story through music and movement activities to further enhance the learning process and love for literature. For our older readers, a new book is introduced weekly. The theme of the book is recognized by the campers through a series of team building games and opportunities for personal connections with the characters and lessons within each story.
