Middle Camp (Grades 1 – 2)

Ages: Children entering grades 1 and 2 in September 2017
Hours: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

More activities plus greater choice equals ginormous fun. With over 25 different activities, your first or second grader will dive into our Middle Camp whole-heartedly. This full day program is a perfect blend of structure and flexibility, giving your child the “grownup” thrill of choosing his or her activities between two, “are-you-sure-I-can’t-do-both-at-the-same-time?” options. One thing your child will find equally thrilling—talking about it non-stop will be your first clue—is meeting new friends. We purposely keep our counselor-to-camper ratio small at 1:7, to help foster a close-knit community where social skills are developed and everyone feels included.

Whether it’s swimming a lap, scoring a goal or taking a bow, our counselors guide and support campers as they discover new interests, develop talents and meet challenges with confidence and enthusiasm.
