Ridgefield Academy is excited to announce its restructured summer programs, featuring a broader array of offerings for older children, a longer day with the option of extended care until 5pm for all age groups, and swimming activities. Camp begins on June 18, 2018 with something for everyone at RA this summer. Programs are open to all members of the public and will run for six weeks.

For our youngest campers, we offer Camp Landmark. This program allows families to get glimpse of what goes on during the regular school year in a fun, condensed summer opportunity for parents and children to discover the magic of Landmark Preschool. Each week will comprise a different theme and you may sign up for as many weeks as desired. Some of the themes coming this summer include “Mad” Little Scientists, Hands-On Art, I’m a Rock Star, Polynesian Paradise, and I Can Show You the World. The camp day for this age group will begin at 9am and end at 3pm.

Junior Patriot Camp is designed for children entering Kindergarten through Grade 5. This year, the program will be split with three weeks operating as a traditional day camp including activities such as swimming, sports, cooking, science, technology, and games. The other three weeks will be themed weeks including Trip Week, Science Week and Art Week. The camp day for this age group has been extended and will run from 9am to 3:30pm. Campers are also able to sign up for weeks that appeal most to them or the full six weeks.

Senior Patriot Workshops will be offered to children in Grades 5-8 and will include a broader variety of topics from which to choose this year. Like Junior Patriot Camp, the Senior Patriot Workshops will run from 9am to 3:30pm with two workshops offered per day; one during the morning and one in the afternoon. Children have the choice of staying for half day or full day depending on the workshops that are of interest to them. Some of the offerings include Service Learning, STEM/Technology, Creative Writing, Rock Band, Rocketry, Soccer, Lacrosse, Cooking, Photography and Math Enrichment. RA will provide something for every child’s imagination.
