Summer Camp, for children age 5-12, is a full-day program filled with child-friendly activities including field trips, swimming opportunities, and a variety of camper-directed projects. We serve nutritious snacks and promote physical well-being through outside play and organized sports. Our staff works closely with parents to meet the needs of each family.
There are a variety of age-appropriate activities: swimming and water play (age appropriate), arts & crafts, pottery, cooking, academic enrichment projects, field trips and community service. Children in Pathways I (ascending kindergarten) and Pathways II (ascending 1st grade) will not have field trips. They will have extracurricular activities such as Spanish lessons, gymnastics, magic shows, petting farm animals, and water play. Older campers enjoy community service projects in addition to other activities. For more information call 901-725-7941.

Idlewild’s weekday kindergarten is planned to give each child new and broad opportunities to experience the joy and love of learning in a safe, secure, caring and positive environment. All children are unique and respected for their own worth, accepted and loved as they are. A growing respect for oneself makes it possible for one to respect others, their rights and property. A child will experience the joy of learning through…
- Discovering the ability to think for him/herself
- Developing manipulative skills and good work habits
- Learning to listen and follow directions
- Learning to give and take, and assume responsibility in a group
- Growing in understanding of God’s love and being willing to respond to his love
