Our lower camp program is designed for ages 3,4 and 5. Small groups are supervised by experienced, competent teachers with the help of counselors. State mandated adult to child ratios are maintained (exclusive of lifeguards).
Campers utilize our school facility, Playgrounds and Pools. The children enjoy Arts & Crafts, Daily Swimming Lessons, Singing, Rhythm, Games, Stories and Nature Walks. Preschool campers are also invited to watch Talent Shows, Dances, Special Guests and Plays presented by the Middle and Upper campers. Much of our time is spent outdoors!
