Upper Camp (Grades 3 – 4)

Ages: Children entering grades 3 and 4 in September 2020
Hours: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

One thing is for sure: Your child definitely has an emerging personality all his or her own. And, at Upper Camp, we do everything we can to make it shine. That’s why we continue to offer third and fourth graders the camaraderie and support found in a group setting, while also giving them more of the individualized choices that spark their curiosity. In the morning, your child will choose from three activities per period and participate in them with kids his or her own age. As afternoon rolls around, your son or daughter can pick from three different activities to focus on during the week. These “electives” give your child extra time to complete an art project, master a martial art move and become confident in a whole range of new and exciting skills.
