el Sol’s Summerfun Outdoor, Nature-inspired, Friendship Camp 2022 is designed, first and foremost, to be responsive to each child’s social-emotional needs which have yearned to be more fully met during the past year of COVID-19 pandemic. del Sol’s attuned and responsive teachers will conscientiously aim to nourish children’s needs for personal safety, trust, genuine connection, belonging, feeling seen and heard, appreciated and valued. Within this high-quality relationship foundation, teachers incorporate modeling and sharing of:

del Sol’s 10 Values, aka The 10 C’s of 21st Century Learning:

Community
Communication
Collaboration
Critical Thinking
Creativity
Competence
Character
Conflict Resolution
Compassion
Citizenship

These 10 Cs form the critical foundation for The del Sol Difference which children will experience at our Summerfun ’22 Outdoor, Nature-inspired, Friendship Camp via our rich, social constructivist (aka Reggio-inspired) environment of child-centered, child-chosen, and child-led explorations as the source of emergent short and long-term projects facilitated by our responsive teachers. Our centers will encompass all the typical domains of early childhood, including an emphasis on S.T.E.A.M. experiences to activate children’s innate higher-level thinking skills of curiosity, awe & wonder, exploration, inquiry, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving. These higher-level thinking skills are the requisite tinder for lighting children’s inner fire of learning — del Sol’s vision and mission: “Learning is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” –Yeats, from Plutarch
