Discoveries (ages 3-6)

Discoveries (for ages 3-6) : $575/week (Week 2, July 2-6, 2018: $460)

This full-day weekly program (8:15 AM – 3:00 PM) is designed to foster independence and creativity. Serving children who are in preschool between the ages of 3 – 6, we want your child to stay engaged, experience varied activities, be challenged, and have a great time. Teachers and qualified assistants provide a stimulating environment. Surrounded by warm, enthusiastic staff members who specialize in early childhood, campers will enjoy air-conditioned classrooms in Drapkin Hall, which serves as their camp base as well as an outdoor playground, for large motor and water play fun. Children are introduced to various elements of the classroom such as practical life, cooking, sensorial activities, arts, crafts, music, and movement. Each week, new themes related to our “Passports Around the World” Summer 2018 theme lead children to discover and explore basic concepts in science, math, language arts, geography, and other academic areas. Lunch as well as nutritious snacks are provided in the morning and afternoon. The price of special events are included, as are snacks and daily lunch. Discoveries participants must be at least three (3) years old and also fully potty trained.
