We offer a camp designed exclusively for children age 3-5! Theme weeks, special events, outdoor activities, field trips, and games are some of the highlights of the camp. Campers staying all day must bring a lunch. Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided. Children must be potty trained and out of diapers/pull-ups.

Extended care is only available for children enrolled in camp. Children must be pre-registered and fees must be paid in advance.
Every camper will receive a camp T-shirt. Camp T-shirts must be worn everyday. Additional T-shirts are available for $7 each.
Field trips will be every Wednesday. For a list of camp trips, contact Chloe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
