Preschool Camp is a half-day experience for curious 4 and 5 year olds! Your camper will connect with their peers and the world around them through songs, story-telling, games, hands-on activities, and exploratory play. Nurturing counselors lead campers through engaging, educational adventures while encouraging active, healthy lifestyles. Campers can expect to learn about a new theme each week while engaging in nature, music, art, community, and gardening activities.
