What's Included

The Hawks Haven Nest provides our youngest campers with the same quality and diverse program found in our Primary Camp. Campers participate in fun, active, enriching activities that are developmentally appropriate. While these children will not participate in off-campus field trips, we will bring special events and activities to campus just for them! In the past, these activities have included a make your own stuffed toy day, an educational program presented by the Racine Zoo, and a bouncy house. -- A typical day will include both individual and small group activities with an emphasis on: • Developing social skills • Providing cognitive challenges • Learning to cooperate and function successfully in a group • Exploring • Building self-confidence • Learning to make choices • Developing a love of learning • Character Development • Creative Thinking Every day will include indoor activities - writing, painting, cutting, and puzzles - and outdoor activities like water fun and great games. Both give your child a chance to develop gross and fine motor skills and include “free choice” as well as instructor-led activities. Because of our busy schedule, all the children can benefit from a one hour rest or “down time” where a nap or story time is encouraged. -- Activity themes vary from week to week and include: Space Adventure Week - wonderful adventures exist in “the final frontier”; American Landmarks Week - learning about our country by exploring famous landmarks; and Time Warp Week - experience the past and imagine the future! -- Directors: Debra Morrall, Barbara Hoppa Swanson and Meagan Moore -- Location: Primary School (use entrance: #6)

Prairie Summer Programs


The summer of 2016 is fast approaching and it’s not too soon to start making plans! Our offerings continue a long tradition of excellence, enrichment and fun. We are pleased to offer several of our new classes and camps along with previous summer favorites. Regardless of your interests or age, The Prairie School’s 2016 Summer Program has something for you!


Hawks Haven Day Camp (K4-­8)

Our day­long day camp is broken into three divisions including Nest (K4 & K5), Primary (Gr. 1­-4) and Middle (Gr. 5­-8). Camps incorporate all­-day enrichment as well as instruction and supervised play appropriate for each age group. Off­-campus experiences for our Primary and Middle divisions remain an integral part of the Hawks Haven program; the Nest enjoys special events and activities brought to campus especially for them!                

Summer Workshops (K­-12)

Our one­, two­-hour or half­-day specialty workshops appeal to every kind of camper and student. From academic enrichment courses including math, writing and reading to art, theatre, robotics, and both vocal and instrumental music, campers will walk away with a memorable and enriching experience.                

Sports Camps (K­-12)

Summer sport camp offerings include tennis, soccer, volleyball, running, archery, golf and basketball. Camps are designed to teach basic skills to the youngest athletes as well as build and improve upon skills for the oldest and most experienced athletes.


Our instructors are drawn from the School’s quality teaching staff, as well as community educators who bring a tremendous amount of experience, enthusiasm and love for teaching. Through a myriad of opportunities, campers will learn, play, discover, stretch their minds, and grow.


All registration must be completed through our safe and secure website at: www.prairieschool.info/summer. Please watch for early bird and sibling discounts. We look forward to providing campers and families a wonderful summer experience!
