Glow in the Dark Summer Camp in Frisco, Texas

May 9, 2020

Get ready for some fun and illuminating times the Glow in the Dark Summer Camp in Frisco, Texas! Our campers let their imaginations run wild participating in everything that is connected to “glow” and “dark”.

We know what you are thinking here…just a bunch of glow in the dark paint projects or something. Well of course we have glow in the dark painting!!! Plus, our teachers take the words GLOW and DARK seriously, and plan many activities that are derivatives of each of these words, linked together for each of our music, art, dance, theatre and spotlight camp classes for each day.

Just start thinking about all of the possibilities that can be associated with these words and you get most of the following:

  1. Glow
  2. Black light
  3. Glimmer
  4. Smolder
  5. Fireflies
  6. Light without flame
  7. Intense color and slight shine
  8. Heightened color
  9. Bloom
  10. Radiate
  11. Warmth
  12. Crimson
  13. Light
  14. Brightness
  15. Luminosity

And the reverse of glow:

  1. Dark
  2. Dimness
  3. Duskiness
  4. Gloom
  5. Murkiness
  6. Nightfall
  7. Total darkness
  8. Black
  9. Cloudy
  10. Darkened
  11. Dingy
  12. Drab
  13. Dull
  14. Foggy
  15. Misty
  16. Overcast
  17. Shadowy
  18. Somber

Teachers choose these types of ideas to create their weekly camp lesson plans, so start thinking of songs that have these words or feelings in the title, movies or plays with story lines inspired by these words, art projects as well, and the list goes on.

Each year our camp teachers like to change up specific projects, and in past years our GLOW IN THE DARK camp has included activities that campers keep coming back for, time and time again.

This camp is for ages 4-11, but if you have a 3 year old previously enrolled in the Musical Arts Schoolhouse school program, they may attend as well.

Activities Planned for Summer Camp:

  • MUSIC: In this class we’ll be featuring songs relating to the theme of the week you choose. Campers will learn about tonal and rhythm patterns through song, instruments and movement. They’ll play singing games, learn the musical alphabet, and so much more.
  • ART: Class will feature a different artist each week. Campers will learn some art history, techniques associated w/featured artist, explore different artist tools and supplies. They can let their inner crafty-self loose. All projects and craft will reflect the theme of the week.
  • THEATRE: Campers will learn theatre terminology, performance tips, costume/prop making and how to work together with team building activities. Campers will get a chance to show off their puppetry skills, put on mini skits (in-class), dramatic play, and so much more.
  • DANCE: Ballet, jazz, hip-hop, tap and tumbling throughout the week. Learning fun combinations to modern songs associated with the theme of the week. Campers will warm-up, stretch, learn technique, free dance, play dance games and so much more fun!
  • SPOTLIGHT ON SUMMER: Academics with summer fun twists
  • Monday: Science Day
  • Tuesday: STEM/Engineering
  • Wednesday: No-bake Cooking
  • Thursday: iPad/Table-top Activities
  • Friday: Board Games Day

Summer Camps – seven weeks over June/July/August

  • Monday – Friday
  • Half Day (8:30am-12:30pm) or Full Day (till 6:00pm)
  • Optional early morning drop off at 7:30am for a small fee
  • Exciting new camp theme each week!
  • Daily Music, Art, Dance, Theatre, Spotlight and Snack/Recess

Morning Summer Camp Activities 8:30am- 12:30pm:

Campers arrive to their designated homeroom (grouped by age-range) and move through six period classes each day, with activities that relate to our weekly theme! The six classes are:  Music, Art, Dance, Theatre, Spotlight and Snack/Recess, each about 40 minutes (more about Spotlight later).

Afternoon Summer Camp Activities 12:30pm – 6:00pm:

Lunch 12:30-1:15pm (campers bring their peanut free lunch)

12:30-6:00pm: Young campers (ages 4 and some 5’s) have a brief rest period that is required by licensing, then continue with activities.All campers have afternoon extended activities that relate to our weekly theme, and include general crafts, music, books, movement, games, projects and FUN!

Friday Summer Camp Activities:

We have DRESS-UP DAY and EVENT DAY each Friday at summer camps! Campers are encouraged to dress- up in their favorite outfit that goes with our weekly theme, we have face painting on campus as well! PLUS we have a themed “movie under the stars” with popcorn for event day (once in a while we have a live event visitor like a magician or live character – this is not for each week).

Our Teachers for Summer Camp:

Our Lead Teachers are professionals in their field of discipline – not just a summer camp fill-in teacher! All teachers and camp assistants are adults (age 18 or above, high-school graduate or above, background check and fingerprinted).

While our instructors like to mix up the daily activities each year with unique lesson plans tailored to the week’s theme, some of the past years’ activities include:

  1. Crafting Disney prints with Plaster of Paris
  2. Making Moana inspired ocean play-dough
  3. Discussing popular Disney movies in Theatre
  4. Making costumes like a Lion King inspired mask
  5. Learning hip-hop, ballet, tap and jazz to Disney music
  6. Making Mad Hatter inspired hats in Art Class
  7. Creating boats similar to the ones seen in Moana out of wood sticks
  8. Kids craft their own tikis.
  9. Make gooey superhero slime.
  10. Make your very own superhero gear.

Most children have a smooth transition into the routine of camp. However, some separation tears and “I don’t want to go to camp” anxieties are very understandable of young children.

Please help our teachers by following this routine to help your child assimilate into their classroom each day:

  1. Attend school in advance of the first day of our Frisco Summer Camp for a full tour, showing your child the classrooms, talking about the routine of the camp day, etc. You can call and schedule one now at 972-346-8236.
  2. Prepare your child with many conversations before camp starts, speaking with them about the morning routine (dressing, breakfast, driving to school), and about how you will be giving them a hug and kiss and wave goodbye in their classroom each morning, and be back later to pick them up.
  3. Then, stick with the plan when you arrive to our Frisco Summer Camp, even if we have some tears with our younger campers and drama (the teachers will nurture and comfort your child and help them get started in class activities with their new friends). We may have some tearful times for a short while, but we find that students usually settle down  quickly when the see their friends happy at class.
