COCO & Mexico EDITION
Monday 10th October 2022 - Get to know Miguel and the other kids, where Mexico is and some Spanish
Where is Miguelito from? Mexico!
Today, is our welcome day! We get to know each other while playing a variety of fun games! We will also get to know Miguel, where he is from, and learn some Spanish expressions. We will take a look at the map of the world and some flags, and make our own mini globes. We will go on a special treasure hunt in the Pestalozzi library, play in various playgrounds and go for a quiet walk through the Sihlfeld cemetary.
Back at Academicus we will have more time for fun, crafts and a book! What an exciting start to the week!
Tuesday 11th October 2022 - Shoe-making, sombrero-wearing, and a special guest
Shoe Making, a special guest and an amazing quest
Today we will meet the Rivera family of shoe-makers and we will make our own shoes. We will practice sewing and painting, as well as tying our shoelaces. Today a special guest will visit us and we will design our own sombreros together. We will then board a boat that will take us to a park where we will spend the other half of the day playing various games and having loads of laughs. Once back at Academicus we will read a book about The Dead Family Diaz and make colourful masks too.
Wednesday 12th October 2022 - Musical Instruments, a music show and a museum full of instruments
Music and a musical museum
Today we will listen to Mexican music and try to recreate it. We will make and decorate our own maracas and musical bottles, and after some training create an orchestra and make real music. Today's trip is to the Musical Instrument Museum in Dürnten, because today is all about music:)
As always there will be also time for a book, a park and more fun and crafts, once back at Academicus. And, of course, we will also find out why Ernesto's guitar was so famous, and learn to play some cords.
Thursday 13th October 2022 - Scary skeletons, bones and Kulturama
Human bodies versus skeletons
Today we will learn about the body, its different parts and learn about various bones that support us. We will exercise, dance, run and stretch, as this is important to keep our bodies healthy. We will paint sugar skulls and create cue tip bone art. Today's trip is to Kulturama where we get to learn about humans, and animals, evolution and the past. We will talk about heritage and family lineage. And then we will head out for some more games and sports outdoors to fill our lungs with fresh healthy air. What a fun and educational day!
Friday 14th October 2022 - Festival Day & Spring Ding Indoor Playground
Jump, dance, preform and have heaps of fun!
To complete our fantastic week of jam-packed activities, learning and discovery will host a mini talent show, creating our own colourful festival! We will learn about various festivals in different countries, then we will head over to the AMAZING Spring Ding indoor playground to continue these festivities! It is so much fun for both young and old! We'll test our driving skills, jumping skills, climbing skills and running of course. Heaps of Fun guaranteed:)

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We are so lucky to have found you! I can say, you were born to make kids happy! They've made such great memories during the camp and for that I am deeply grateful! I must confess, I was sad today when I realised that the camp ended. Every afternoon, I was so excited to hear what kind of adventures they experienced! Hope we can see you as often as possible!
