Summer Robotics

Our Summer Robotics is geared toward the child that is curious and loves to learn by exploring the world around them. Children delight in finding out how things work through fun, hands-on activities and teachers celebrate in knowing that they’re supporting and preparing them for the world of technology. Weekly themes will be based on (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math).

Location

YWCA Princeton (59 Paul Robeson Place).

Arrival

Parents/guardians should park their car in a parking spot in the lower parking lot and walk their child in to the building each morning. Being on time is very important as we start the morning off with our first ballet lesson from 9-10 am. Parents/guardians must drop their child off at The Burke Foundation Early Childhood Center at YWCA Princeton side entrance each day when they are dropping them off and picking them up.

Items To Bring Each Day

Ballet children should bring:

  • a bag lunch (with ice pack)
  • a bathing suit, towel, and a plastic bag with the child’s name on it for the wet suit (Monday and Thursday only)
  •  a change of clothes, cream sun block (NO SPRAY SUNBLOCK)
  •  water bottle with child’s name on it
  •  socks and sneakers for walking and playing (no sandals or flip-flops allowed)

Snacks

The YWCA will provide snacks for the children once a day for half-day campers and twice a day for full day campers. Snacks will consist of a fruit or veggie option, a cracker/cookie option and a water/juice option. If your child has an allergy and you would like to provide us with your own snacks, that is permissible and we will keep your child’s snack separate and safe for the week. Friday is fun day and we will serve ice pops in the afternoon.

Lunch

If your child is staying for the lunch hour or is a full day camper, parents are to provide a non-perishable lunch each day for their child. We do not have refrigeration for lunch boxes so please make sure that you include an ice pack in all lunch bags.

In consideration of the many food allergies children have today, the YWCA appreciates your cooperation with the elimination of any food products that contain nut or nut products from our camp.

After Care 3:30-6 Pm

Each day, after care is available from 4-6 pm. This can be added to your registration at time of enrollment.
