Welcome to A Sabot Summer!

Sabot’s summer programming offers a combination of one-week, themed, morning camps, as well as a full-day option, Like Summers Used to Be. Each week-long offering provides children with engaging opportunities for exploring and developing skills, sparking new ideas and interests, and fostering imagination and enthusiasm for the world around them.

Like Summers Used to Be is tailored to the needs of parents for whom summer can mean a long interruption in childcare arrangements and routines. The sessions are organized in such a way that families can enroll for the entire summer, through August 7th, (note, we will be closed the week of June 29 - July 3), or for any number and combination of weeks. Families can also choose to enroll in a morning camp and add Like Summers Used to Be for the afternoon.

Our summer program is open to all children in the Greater Richmond area. The week-long, themed camps are designed for children ages 4 - 7. Unless otherwise indicated, an exception can be made if a child is 3 years old and was enrolled in Sabot’s preschool for the 2014-15 school year. Like Summers Used to Be is open to children ages 4 - 8. An exception can be made if a child is 3 years old and was enrolled in Sabot’s Preschool for the 2014-15 school year or will be enrolling for the 2015-16 school year.

GROW! Sabot's Community Garden Project

At Sabot we grow in our garden all year long. But in the summer, since school is not in session, the garden is lonely. Come work in the garden this summer! July is the perfect time to make things happen in the garden; Kerry and Pippin are planning great activities including building an insect hotel, a new worm bed, harvesting vegetables and fruit and cooking with the bounty, planning out a new garden path, and much more. Come and help us GROW the garden.

Like Summers Used To Be

Playing with water and rocks, building with sticks, having picnics with friends, making fairy houses of natural materials, reading under the shade of a tree — like summers used to be. This camp features unstructured play where children can build forts and play houses, and engage in water play, gardening, games, and many more choices — whatever sparks their interests on a warm summer’s day. Children will have the opportunity to play and create both indoors and out. Planned activities will be balanced with open-ended time, a schedule designed to provide children with a summer experience that is both engaging and relaxing.

Choose from our A La Carte Menu: build your schedule by mixing and matching the Sabot Summer options. You may sign up for a Sabot Summer Camp in the morning and then Like Summers Used to Be for the afternoon, or Like Summers Used to Be for the whole day.
