Bullying Policy

Bullying will not be tolerated at any TAC Sports program. In general, a “three strikes” policy is followed. After the first incident, a coach will address the situation with both the aggressor and victim. During a private meeting with the aggressor, the coach will explain the consequences of bullying. The parents of both parties will be notified. An incident report will be drafted and sent to head office. This procedure is followed should a second incident occur. In addition, the aggressor may be separated from the group or put into a different sport/activity (additional fees for specialized programs will apply). If a third incident should occur, the aggressor will be expelled from camp, not only for the duration of the program but from any other TAC Sports program in the future. Cases of extreme bullying are not subject to the three strike rule. If it is proven that there was intent to seriously harm another child through physical or verbal means the aggressor will face expulsion from camp. His or her parents will be called for immediate pickup (refund for remaining days ONLY will apply).

TAC Adventure Camp is a FULL DAY program (with a HALF DAY option) for ages 4-5.

Every week offers a different theme (i.e. Safari, Atlantis, Superheros and Villains, etc.),  where exciting activities are planned in correspondence to that theme. The weekly activities include activities such as arts and crafts, story time, camp songs, low organizational games (where campers learn fundamental movement skills), and scavenger hunts that are stimulating for young minds, fostering creativity and imagination, and more importantly develops both literacy and physical literacy.

Furthermore, each day features a specific sport that is modified to be developmentally appropriate for this age group, allowing campers to explore soccer, tennis, basketball & dance and decide for themselves what sports they are most passionate about. For more detailed information about this program, please refer to our weekly curriculum plan in the itinerary. All children registered in Adventure Camp must be potty trained.

       

“Physical literacy is just as important as the ability to read and write. The most important step toward developing physical literacy is mastering fundamental movement skills.”

Tile Painting

LSA Art brings one of the oldest decorative art techniques to its Summer Camp Activities!

Tile painting is an elegant and decorative field of art which performs richness of color and pattern in a different way.

Our students have a wonderful chance to learn about the history of tile designs from the ancient world to Granada style, Portuguese and Dutch painted tiles, and the very modern techniques, while they are creating their own Hand Painted Tile which is one of the highest forms of artistic expressions.

 

This art practice could adjust itself in modern design and fashion too. So, if our students have ever dreamt of making their own hand-painted tiles; whether they are a complete beginner or an experienced designer, this program will teach them how.

Our students would learn about the artistic and scientific meanings that can be found in repetitive mathematical patterns of some designs.

Also, they will have the opportunity to experiment with various, effective techniques. No matter if the students do not have a creative background, we will assist them in the process, showing them examples of different drawing and painting techniques that will help them to complete their ideas.
