What to Expect:Preschool Camp is a half-day experience for curious 5 year olds (Note this modification for summer 2020 due to COVID-19 regulations. Pre-registered 4 year old siblings of older campers may attend). 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.  


​What to Bring: Every day, your child will need a water bottle, snack, and sturdy camp shoes (we recommend sneakers / tennis shoes). Beyond that, please apply sunscreen each morning and send a rain jacket if it looks like rain. Mountain Roots provides a morning snack and all program supplies. ​​
