Magical Beginnings' Summer Camp

Magical Beginnings is ready to make your little one’s summer—you guessed it—MAGICAL! Our camps at our Essex, Wakefield, River Street, Middleton and Maple Street, Middleton locations will offer exciting weekly themes, field trip adventures, and tasty treats for our little campers. To sign up or for more information—offerings and availability will vary by location—please reach out to the camp of your choice directly. Contact information below.  


Science, technology, engineering, art and math!  Magical Beginnings will become a museum!  Children will create process art that will be framed and put up on the walls.  Each day will involve science involved snacks…  Edible geodes, fizzy lemonade, ice cream in a bag and so much more.  Children will work in groups and pairs as they become engineers using cups, sticks and cubes to be challenged into thinking how, why, what if, and what next.  They will learn about weather, doing experiments about hurricanes, tornados, and more. Oh, the places we will go!


Kids and yoga are like magic and moonbeams.  This will be a week about learning and exploring, mindfulness and imagination.  Kids will learn self-awareness, confidence and balance.  They will learn about feelings, emotions and how to describe and understand them.  Kids will make wish rocks, dream catchers and become human spider webs. Group projects involve a miniature zen garden and partner poses.   Children will make scented play-dough and learn to balance a butterfly on their nose.   Namaste!


Children are curious about the world around them and this will be a week to learn about animals and creatures that live all around us!  Let’s learn about animal tracks, and make them!  Where do animals live?  Maybe in a Lego forest??  How about an insect hotel?  All things are possible! In the midst of all of this fun, children will have an opportunity to ride on a live pony!


Life is a circus carnival! There will be tickets and prizes for games. The children will jump through hoops, play ring toss, and walk the balance beam. We will have a gummy worm hunt and a jello eating contest. We will make popcorn and taste cotton candy. Crafts will include making clown slime, painting with balloons and spin art. Children will get their faces painted and dress up like their favorite circus characters. Music will be incorporated throughout the entire week- what better way to combine music and movement. The week will end with a circus performance!


Nature is all around us.  We will grow vegetables and flowers in our magical gardens and learning about how, just like in nature, each day will be different than the day before. We will taste and cook with local honey and learn where honey comes from. Campers will explore the delicious world of local food through activities like taste tests, chef demonstrations, and creating your very own recipes. Of course, this cannot be done without a Magical Beginnings apron, and a handmade chef hat! A special visit from the ice cream truck with close out the week!


Every day is field day, the last week of MB summer camp. Each day campers will learn about teamwork, through fitness made fun. Each day will have a school spirit theme! Activities will include relay games, cooperative games, and water games. Children will learn about problem solving, communication, and resilience as they participate in activities that are fun and challenging. MB will host the summer Olympics one day, and children will create teams from different countries, along with performing opening and closing ceremonies. We will wrap up the week with a family BBQ where families can join us to end summer camp!


Magic lives within all of us… Magic mirrors, magic wands and somewhere over the rainbow.  Stories about people, places and possibilities.  Children will learn about the magic all around them.  Activities will include making wind streamers, keeping paper dry under water, and making and drinking magic milk.  A Magician will appear for a special show!


Get ready to dive into a week of whacky, wild water play! Children will make it rain with water filled piñatas, participate in slippery water races, build a water wall & car wash.  There will be time for team building with back to back water balloon dashes. We didn’t leave out our little engineers! There will be creative Lego water building, and a water balloon catapult. All the fun this wet and wild week!


Get ready to blast off into a week of space and exploration! Children will work as a group to design and build their own rocket ship. Where will they go? We will learn about out giant solar system and mobiles. Let’s learn about the starts and constellations crafting star and planet necklaces, and walk in moon sand.  They will make their own galaxy dough and fly space shuttle gliders. We will learn some history about space launches and space stations. The week will include space themed snacks! Learn about what it’s like to eat in space, with moon cakes and space lollipops!
