Best Day Ever!

Welcome to Best Day Ever! This complete summer camp curriculum is designed by teachers for teachers. Lesson plans are available for preschool and school-age students. Each weekly themed unit features high-interest topics, engaging hands-on activities, and opportunities for children to learn and grow. Lessons are aligned with the PA learning standards and can be adapted to meet the needs and interests of individual students. Best Day Ever! is brought to you by The Learning Lamp, a nonprofit based in Johnstown, PA that has offered summer camps for children since 2006. The curriculum was partially funded by the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies and was written in partnership with the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Professional Development Organization (PDO) at the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE).

As a child care organization in Pennsylvania, these lesson plans are free to you. In exchange, please complete the survey link below for each unit used in your program. When you complete a survey, you are automatically registered for a $200 Amazon gift card drawing, which will take place at the end of the summer. We’re excited to hear what you think!
