A World to Discover

EXCITING PROGRAMS LED BY AMAZING EDUCATORS

Each Junior Activity Leader introduces an age-appropriate theme during the camper’s first day at camp. Throughout the next several days, the children are encouraged to do research as they are given access to a variety of books and other visual materials. Timely storytelling and discussion further define concepts and develop a greater understanding of the chosen theme. The children participate in related arts and crafts projects to further develop visual representations of their theme. Throughout the two-week (one session) or 4-week (Both Sessions) process, they learn aspects of the related geography, the flora and fauna, and the insects and animals who live in the region related to their theme. Parents are invited to our session-ending Open House at which time the children will perform a musical presentation and proudly present their assembled projects.

What's in a Day?

All of our groups are led by a qualified teacher who is aided by a young volunteer senior high school camp assistant. The children go outside every day - weather permitting. Our Junior groups stay together throughout the day. They eat lunch as a group, play together outside, weather permitting, and are assembled together for parental pick up at the end of the day.
Our juniors are kept very busy! They participate in daily activities led by our music, physical education and science specialists. They participate in science activities, outdoor games and musical rehearsals in a fun, energetic and safe environment as they discover new skills and passions.
