    This summer, we will be offering Base Camp (a traditional style day camp) as well as full day Activity Camps such as coding, art, chess, outdoor adventures and more! Our K-6 Summer Camp is available to TNS students and Non-TNS students in Northwest Arkansas that have just completed Kindergarten through 6th grade. Children do NOT have to be enrolled at The New School to attend TNS Summer Camps for Kindergarten through 6th Grade!

    Children are grouped by their CURRENT GRADE LEVEL, the grade they have just completed in the 2023-24 school year NOT the grade they will be going into.

    Each day, activities will center around thematic units with lots of fun and hands-on learning through arts and crafts and activities. Base Campers will attend an outdoor centered field trips a week to enjoy the beauty of NWA. All Campers will also enjoy special on campus recreational activities, recess, tech time, and structured free time to be social with their friends!
