Camp Discovery – Ages 3-4

Discover the wonders of summer as we explore a new theme each day.  We will offer daily opportunities for each camper to make new friends, create fun and messy crafts, learn new songs and games, and become independent.  We will provide activities both inside and outdoors and provide entertainment to add to the theme.  This camp is perfect for children entering preschool in the fall (must be toilet trained) or children who have completed a year of preschool.  Children will be grouped by age.  Bring a snack and drink to camp each day.  Campers will receive a camp t-shirt and tote bag.
