Summer Discovery Program

Engaging structured summer camp and activities at Lifesteps Early Education Centers in Beaver & Butler Counties for children ages 3 to 9 years — helping children grow and develop in a fun and focused environment. 

New and exciting experiences each year, centered around a weekly or summer‑long theme supports learning as a continuous process for young children 

Offers needed respite for parents and caregivers

This Year's Theme is STEAM

Week 1: Science – Experiments help children develop basic science skills like observing what is happening, using words to describe what they notice, and repeating the action to compare results. Questioning and posing answers are skills used every day in the classroom.

Week 2: Technology – When you hear the word technology, you might think of computers and smartphones, but in the preschool curriculum, technology refers to using tools and developing fine and gross motor skills. Tools can help children develop eye-hand coordination and strengthen their hand and finger muscles for writing, typing, and drawing.

Week 3: Engineering – Playing with blocks and other building materials develops math and science skills, helping children learn about gravity, balance, shapes, and problem solving.

The Arts – The Arts will be woven throughout each of the weeks of program as each child’s creativity is expressed through design, creative planning, dramatic play, and performance.

Week 4: Mathematics - Sorting and counting are great ways to develop logic and learn basic math skills. Through play with blocks, colors, and shapes children begin to learn concepts such as classification and ordering.
