 Fun for Preschoolers

Our youngest campers, 2 years – entering Pre-K are introduced to the day camp experience through a variety of professionally led outdoor and indoor activities, art, music, nature, water play and more. Pre-K children swim in our heated pool every day. Groups are led by experienced, adult teachers and caring staff.

A Full Day of Activity for Older Children

Children entering grades K-4 enjoy a variety of activities including swimming, soccer, baseball, gymnastics, martial arts, music, nature and more in a nurturing, non-competitive environment. Special themed days such as Pajama Day, Crazy Hat Day, Sport Day and more highlight each week and are enjoyed by all campers. Special late nights and BBQ’s are always something campers look forward to and enjoy. Our oldest campers entering grades 2 – 4 also enjoy a local trip every week.
