Newtown mom creates children’s program to encourage kindness and empathy for others

THE ISLE OF SKOO program offers free summer camp to children ages 4 to 8. Each child is paired with a high school-aged mentor and builds social connections through the mentor/mentee relationship.

Each day of camp is an energetic, interactive day of learning through The Isle of Skoo lessons, music and puppetry. Fun learning while being engaged and excited.

A day of camp looks like this:

The mentor greets their mentee and spends the first part of the day engaged in a creative and educational  activity of their choice.

The Isle of Skoo puppet show begins, with Skoo and his friends teaching an interactive lesson that incorporates music, dance and instruments. 

There is a mid-show break with free play outside that includes snacks, games, crafts, yoga and making your own treats.

After free play, everyone heads back inside where a guest from the community teaches a special activity.

The show continues, then closes the day with a goodbye from Skoo and his friends.

Camp runs in two one-week sessions, Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 12:00, in July.
