Family of Christ Learning Center in Ahwatukee will be offering its summer camp activities to the community soon and the registration deadline is March 17.

Summer camps will be offered through an eight-week session throughout June and July.

Each week will have different themes like Hawaiian, Mickey and Minnie Wonderland and Dr. Seuss.

During the camps, children travel to five different classrooms to participate in various activates based on the week’s theme, director Sue Nelson said.

“They travel to the art room, P.E. room, game room, chapel room, science and music room,” she said. “The reason we do it is because it’s fun for the kids to travel, instead of staying in the same classroom for the whole time.”

The themes were brought about by a team of three teachers at Family of Christ, who brain stormed different ideas.

“We look through books; we explore and find what kids would like to do,” Nelson said.

Camps are offered through a two-day or three-day a week schedule designed to work around the schedule of participating families. There is also a four-day program.

Camps will be open to children 2 years old through kindergarten Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to noon, at Family of Christ Learning Center, 3501 E. Chandler Blvd.
