Classes for Children and Teens

During the summertime, the School does not offer children's programming other than the camp and Enoch Pratt programming listed below.  We would be happy to work with you on a customized program for your group, though, if the camp schedule does not meet your needs.  Regular after school programming will begin again the fall.

Do you find your child ignores your pleadings to behave at the table?  These classes at the Enoch Pratt are a shortened version of our basic table manners program and a great way to introduce your child to the how and why of table manners. In this interactive session your child will learn the basics of setting the table and behavior at the table. Hands on practice with real food will be part of the class. Some branches also allow parents to join in, so be sure to check.

Summer Camps for Kids Ages 4-High School     



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)

Face it!  Parents want their kids to have good manners and to hang out with other kids who have good manners.  As a parent or grandparent, we request the same behaviors over and over again, but it does not always seem to stick.  This camp is a fun way to reinforce those skills you are teaching at home.  The campers will use lots of hands on play to learn and practice these skills that are a necessity in today’s world, but which are too often forgotten by kids and adults alike.  Topics include shaking hands, eye contact, introducing yourself and others, making conversation, table manners, common courtesies, telephone skills, being a good host and guest and even public speaking and writing thank you notes.
