Pre-K - 2
Calling all campers: jump onto the Lily Pad for a summer filled with new friends and share new experiences with us in our general camp program.
In our Polliwog program, designed specifically for those entering Pre-K, our youngest campers will spend their days engaged by music, creative movement and play, nature explorations, creating treats in the kitchen, daily swim lessons, and playing all kinds of outdoor games. We’ll have a chance to discover and explore the world around us during ‘Noticing Nature’, and sing and dance at our weekly dance party. The fun is just a hop, skip and jump away this summer—come join the excitement on the pad!
Although the Polliwog day ends at 1:30 p.m., for those campers ready to extend their day until 3:30 p.m., we do offer a Polliwogs Plus option, where campers will continue to play, learn, and enjoy all that summer camp has to offer.
*All campers must be bathroom independent
Rising K through 2 Leap Frog campers spend their days hopping from one fun destination to the next on the Lily Pad! Each week includes artistic adventures, playing outdoor collaborative games, and cooking treats in the kitchen. These young frogs will work on their swimming skills during their daily swim lessons and sing, dance, and explore their creative side at our ever-popular dance parties. Campers will be grouped by grade, so campers can spend their day with their peers while exploring the beautiful Park school campus during ‘Noticing Nature,’ as well as creating nature-inspired art projects in the Art Hut. Jump onto our pad to make new friends and share new experiences with us this summer!
