Beary Good Manners For Boys and Girls (Age 4 to 7 OR 4 to entering grade 2, depending on site)                      

Make learning manners even more fun when you bring a stuffed animal friend to camp!  It is never too early to learn these ever important skills.  The earlier you start learning to shake hands, to look someone in the eyes and to introduce yourself and others, the more likely it is that these skills become second nature.  Campers are amazed how much fun learning these skills can be when you get to color, use puppets and dress ups, and lots of fun props to practice these real life skills.  In addition to the above topics, campers will also learn conversation skills, table manners, magic words, telephone skills, being a good host and guest  and how to make new friends.  Be sure to bring a stuffed animal (bear or any other animal) friend with you to camp.  Campers will create a manners workbook to bring home.

Hey, Dude!  That’s Rude!:  How To Be Socially Smart (Ages 8 to age 12 or entering grade 7, depending on site)
