CAMP PIONEER SPRINGS
Creativity, nature, movement and music are a daily part of Camp Pioneer Springs! Each week campers explore a theme through an integrated mix of fun learning activities and create works of art and treasures. Our extra-long camp day includes lunch time and ends with a “green hour,” an hour of supervised, outdoor play in our school’s magical natural setting. Small camper/adult ratio.
Creatures of the Springs – June 17 – 21: Campers will use a variety of materials, including clay, paint, paper mache, and more to create all kinds of animals, both real and imaginary.
Nature Adventures – July 8 – 12: Campers will take daily adventures in nature, learning about natural eco-systems, wildlife, and plants.
Needle Arts – July 29-August 2: Campers will explore using a sewing machine, finger-knitting, and needlepoint; creating Dream Catchers, Pot Holders, and more.
Pioneer Springs Community School is a minimal-tuition private school serving the North Mecklenburg and Charlotte areas. We currently have a kindergarten and first grade class and are accepting registrations for grades K-2 for the 2013-2014 school year. We will grow by adding one grade level per year. We are located in the Historic Croft Schoolhouse, south of Huntersville on Old Statesville Road. We welcome students of any race, color, ethnic or national origin.
Pioneer Springs’ holistic approach to education is inspired by the very successful charter school in our area, Community School of Davidson. To ensure adherence to this curriculum and climate, the Founders hired Mary Coppola, an educator/consultant from Community School of Davidson for continued development. Pioneer Springs consistently receives assistance with educational research, designing curriculum, and staff development from CSD.
All of the founders of Pioneer Springs are parents of students who attended both The Children’s Schoolhouse Preschool and Corvian Community School in 2011-2012 for kindergarten. In the short time our children attended Corvian, we witnessed first-hand the positive ways our children responded to the Basic School Philosophy and the environment in their classroom. We founded Pioneer Springs because we want our children to continue their education in this type of environment, and we want to share this with other families.
