Preschool and Kindergarten Programs Preschool and Kindergarten Programs (Ages 4-6)

Our Day Camp Preschool and Kindergarten program is the best place for young children ages 4-6 years to begin their camp experience. We have a group for preschoolers and a group for kindergarteners so all activities are designed for their ages and abilities. 

Our day camp is a traditional outdoors program, and runs in 4 & 8 week sessions. This provides young campers consistency and the maximum opportunities to build skills, confidence and make friends.

Little RaccoonsLittle Raccoons (Preschool - 2nd Grade)

An introductory program for 1st time campers. While most of our youngest campers are ready for the full Day Camp program, some younger children and their parents may wish to start with Little Raccoons. It is a shorter camp experience (2-week sessions) designed to be introductory to day camp.

Little Raccoons are in their own co-ed camper groups for campers 4 - 7 years old. Some challenging activities such as horseback riding and canoeing are not a part of the Little Raccoon program to allow for a more relaxed daily schedule.

  • Swimming Lesson
  • Fishing
  • Boating
  • Nature & Outdoors
  • Crafts
  • Sports
  • Quiet Activities
  • Singing and Skits
