The importance of socializing kids early in their lives can be easily and happily accomplished through their attendance at a summer day camp. Even the most timid of children can be drawn out by competent and caring experienced counselors. The staff is always there to guide the children as they participate in the almost endless number of fun activities, make friends, learn new challenges and how to cooperate with others in team play.
A summer day camp is an exciting experience and a totally appreciated change from the structure of the school year. Depending on the child’s age, a choice of half day or full day options are available.
A day camp for kids is set up with a schedule that is appropriate for each age group as well as group activities that everyone can enjoy. That scheduling is geared toward making it effortless to join in because the child feels comfortable and able to take part.
Preschool and Kindergarten
Two, three or five day programs are designed for the youngest campers, ages three through five. Skill development and confidence are promoted through both active and relaxed opportunities such as sports, swimming, the arts, gymnastics and more and then slowing down with quiet games and a story time. A three to one camper to counselor ratio allows individual attention and support.
First Through Seventh Grade
An action-packed day camp for kids overflows with activities and provides chances to discover new interests or take part in already-favorite activities and create friendships while having fun.
