Busy summer ahead at Camp Big Wood

Summer—Sun Valley style

Camp Big Wood at the Big Wood School in Ketchum is providing action-packed summer days for the little ones, Sun Valley style!

Big Wood School director Kimberly Piggins said, "Our program is designed for children ranging from 18 months through six years of age. We offer a different exciting and dynamic theme every week.

"Whether you have a Hummingbird (children 3-and-younger who nap in the afternoon) or a Woodpecker (children no longer requiring a nap who are ready for a full day of activities), your child will get a taste of all Sun Valley has to offer this summer."

Piggins said theme week activities include:

Hiking the many kid-friendly trails of the valley; biking along the bike path; wildflower picking during the June 18-22 "Flower Power" Camp; fishing at Penny Lake.

Also, dabbling with arts and crafts; cooking up some tasty treats during the June 25-29 "Let's Get Cookin" week; splashing on water play days; and putting on a show with your own puppets creations for "Big Wood Goes Broadway," Aug. 13-17.

There are 11 sessions scheduled, starting with a three-day "Let's Get Acquainted to Camp," introduction from Wednesday to Friday, June 13-15. Thereafter, camp sessions are Tuesdays through Fridays through Aug. 24.

For details or registration, call 726-9053 or email bigwood Full-day and half-day options are available. Sign up for a week at a time or join Camp Big Wood for entire summer.
