Grannys Courtyard Uas 2010

  1. 1. The Granny’s Courtyard: A Theme Based Camp It was a time when the fairytales came alive, the gardens were brimming with activity, the grass yonder looking around with a green dew lens, and to add to it all, a flower that is hardly a day old trying to look at its creators playing and learning under the shade and care of the mighty tree umbrellas. Little shades of innocence could be found everywhere, in the tip-tap thumping of the ground during the dance sessions, a solitary thatch roof that was framed up right where it could meet the visitor’s eye, pots of varied shapes, sizes and colors adorning the sidewalk, hand-crafted masks which try to hide and display a plethora of emotions at the same time. To say that all of this did happen would let anyone surmise that it must be a story from wonderland, but for the children, if truth be told, it was just a day in the Granny’s Courtyard.

  4. 4. The Granny’s Courtyard: A Theme Based Camp Our day starts with a glass of milk, That everybody hates to drink I bathe, I comb, I dress, I eat, Then I run towards the street I play cricket, I hide, I seek, I catch a butterfly I sleep on sand, I lie on grass, I watch a train go by . I squeeze a leaf, I grind a flower, I break open a fruit The colours that I use to paint Are from the nature's root Half the colour makes my art, The other half is on my shirt Granny cleans up all the mess Yet she praises my effort I play in mud, I climb a tree, I learn to catch a fish As long as I am safe and snug, I can do all I wish My life here is full of fun Colours so rich and bright After the tiring, fun-filled day There are stories at the night. Stories of animals and birds, And those of queens and kings Stories of the stars above She tells us everything She makes me laugh, she laughs with me And she plays with us all She wipes our tears when we cry , And lifts us when we fall Grandma is the greatest, Her courtyard is the best Granny is like my mama, I'm the birdie in her nest Fun Theatre Health & Granny Story Telling Clay & Pottery Dance and Music Fungama Scarecrow, Puppet, Masks Farming & tips Bonfire & Drum Circle Fun & Food

Part of the camping program requires children to write letters to their parents everyday, which will be delivered to you. Phone calls are discouraged. However, if a parent calls we can arrange for them to speak to their child. Parents may visit at any time. There is no designated visiting day. The whole idea of GC is to give campers a little time away from city life, with no disturbance from computers, Phone calls, TV, and video games

Boys and girls have separate cabins and bathrooms, but all activities are co-ed. How is Granny's courtyard different from other summer Camps? Our staff understands that a child first needs to feel secure before they will explore and try new things. Granny's Courtyard's non-regimented sessions foster independence and give campers the responsibility of choosing all their own activities. Through daily interaction with fellow campers and staff, children learn to problem solve and help others. Camp gives them a true sense of who they are and how they can contribute to the community around them. Tell us about your counsellors? All our counsellors have previous experience working with children. They range in ages from 18 to 35 and the average age is 25. The camp director personally interviews each staff member. We also check references by phone and perform a criminal background check and they have sound skill and knowledge in the various activities
