K-1st Grade Camp

Our Kindergarten and 1st grade camps embrace the natural enthusiasm and energy of kids at this grade level. Our programs are scheduled to provide a day full of excitement and learning. Campers engage in a wide range of activities throughout the week. Art activities, nature activities, and song sessions are just some of the things campers can look forward to.
