"Children who can keep a beat often show greater reading fluency."
We allow students to learn, experience, and love music in a nurturing environment where students feel safe to express themselves as unique individuals. Heightened self awareness, socialization, self discipline, spacial reasoning and physical coordination are benefits of our curriculum. Music activities involve rhythm, movement, sound recognition, instrumentation, and beginning notation.
Art Stories, book one
Curriculum Foundation Series
We provide an opportunity to awaken in a child an appreciation of beauty. In language suited for children, some of the simpler art concepts are presented.Through pictures and story material the child is made conscious of beauty of color, form, line as seen in nature, in pictures, in all of their surroundings. Elementary ideas of drawing, painting, design, sculpture, architecture, interior decoration, and costume are thus introduced in a setting of natural child interests and activities.
"A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset."
Inspirational classes that encourage a child's natural thirst for connection. In this imaginative series, we combine simple yoga poses and empowering stories. It is an opportunity for our students to build their focus, strength, flexibility, mindfulness, and breathing techniques. Through stories, breathing and movement, our students learn self-love and the importance of showing kindness to others.
" Camp Lila is pure magic! Ms Katie is a ray of sunshine...she has the best energy and is so amazing with the children. From the minute you walk in she makes everyone feel so welcome with hugs , love, rad activities and music. She thinks of the most creative projects for the kiddos, while having fun and learning at the same time. My daughter just adores every single teacher, and they are all so loving to the kiddos. Camp Lila is unlike any other place. They do yoga, pick fruits from their trees, and bring home paintings that you actually want to hang up, they are so cool! I always say I wish they had a Camp Lila for adults. We are so grateful to be part of such a wonderful place."

"Camp Lila is one of the most magical spots. I have both my boys there. From the moment you arrive it's like walking into a magical wonderland. The music, the art, the creativity, the students, the other parents, and most important the teachers. Ms Katie and the crew make everyday an amazing adventure. Upon their arrival Ms Katie will greet each of my boys with a big hug and kind words. She squeezes them tight and in return their faces light up from ear to ear. To know my kids are that loved, cared for and heard means the world to me. The art that they come home with has become some of my most prized possessions. The stories my children share and the pictures Ms Katie shares are amazing. My boys ask even on the days they are not attending., "Mommy are we going to Camp Lila?" We absolutely love Camp Lila and count ourselves lucky to be part of their special family."
