This year Dall'Inizio DaySchool will be offering summer camp experiences for preschool and school-age children. Our camp is a science-based camp that will introduce children to different concentrations in science and expose the fact that we are surrounded by science everywhere in our daily lives. There will be loads of hands on experience to help foster a love of science in our campers! Check out our flyers and week descriptions available for download below. Camp will begin on June 10th with the last day of camp being on August 16th.
We have 10 weeks of adventures lined up for our campers! We will learn about Physics, Geology, Earth Science, Archaeology, Animals, Agriculture and so much more! We will be out and about every day exploring the gifts of nature by visiting our local parks and nearby State Parks! Our school age campers will have field trips like the Pittsburgh Zoo and Carnegie Science Center, Knoebels Grove, Millbrook Marsh and many more!
Our official camp hours are 8am-4pm with before and after care provided at no extra cost between the hours of 7:30am-5:30pm. Campers will need to bring a packed lunch daily as we will be out in the field. Please note that some of the field experiences will require an additional fee.
Priority enrollment will be given to children who enroll for the whole summer or most of the summer camp weeks. Enrollment information and forms will be available soon for download below. ELRC and Penn State subsidies accepted!
This week we are going to take a close look at how life on Earth is sustained, how we interact with the earth, what leads to environmental problems and how these problems can be solved.
Butterflies, spiders, and ants...oh my! Not only are these creepy crawlies everywhere, they provide many necessary benefits to humans and human society. Campers will learn how truly amazing these creatures are!
Nutrition and Wellness:
Campers will be introduced to nutritional principles, emphasizing the latest information from evidence-based science on nutrition and health. Campers will understand the importance of healthy foods and how to adapt and adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Play Sports to Stay Active:
Campers will have exposure to different sports and they will learn about teamwork, communication, and the importance of exercise.
Severe weather can occur during any time of the year. Hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, wildfires, floods, etc. are in the news year-round. Campers will learn all about these weather systems and how they develop into the disaster they become.
Campers will learn about marine habitats, amazing creatures that live in the oceans, salt marshes, and so much more! Campers will learn how important the oceans are and how to protect our oceans.
What better way to spend Shark Week than learning all about sharks? Campers will explore the different types of sharks, shark life, their habitats, and how sharks fit in the food chain.
Campers will experience the wonder and excitement of chemical reactions while learning about the science application of chemistry, and how it is a part of our day-to-day lives.
We are "Rockstars":
This week we will be focusing on the rock cycle and how we end up with three major types of rocks; igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. We will also scratch the surface of what we use these types of rocks for in our daily lives.
Current Science Discoveries:
Groundbreaking discoveries occur in science all of the time. Campers will learn about the latest discoveries and fascinating breakthroughs that impact them and the whole world!

While our summer camp is science based, we are also committed to encouraging our campers to be the change they want to see in the world! Our program strives to teach our campers how to be respectful, take responsibility, and to build self-esteem and self-confidence, not only in ourselves but in our fellow campers as well. We have an all-inclusive policy, in that no one plays alone, no one eats alone, etc. unless they wish to.
