‘Kickin’ It…Hard from Day One!

We know how important every “first” is in your child’s life. That’s why we go above and beyond, and then above that and beyond that, to create a fun and safe environment for our youngest campers on the block.

It’s an honor for our well-trained staff to help shape budding camp enthusiasts by introducing first-time Kid Explorer campers to new experiences while growing their independence and expanding their comfort levels.

Whether enrolled for our Rising Pre K Day Camp Half-Day (9am – 12pm) Rising Pre K Day Camp or full Day (9am – 3pm), your child will find inspiration in weekly themes that wrap educational challenges into a whole lot of unforgettable fun.

We ensure our themes and curriculum promote socialization, independence, listening and following directions. Your camper might not even realize they’re learning important lessons and skills that will prepare them for school in the fall. (But don’t worry, YOU will notice. And so will their teachers.)

Variety might be the spice of life, but it’s also the heart of camp.

Summer is about exploration, so we work hard to create variety that continually surprise campers. Activities include:

  • Arts & Crafts
  • YoGo
  • STEM
  • Inflatables/Moon Bounce
  • Instructional Swim
  • Music & Movement
  • Outdoor Games & Play Time
  • Sports
  • Special Events
  • Quiet Time
