Summer Adventures Day Camp

Nursery and Kinder Camps

Our camp sets a foundation by establishing a routine and teaching children to follow a daily schedule. Nursery and Kinder campers play constructively, learn cooperatively and make friends. Our goal is to expand children's horizons by providing developmentally appropriate, creative and fun play experiences.
Adventures Summer Nursery and Kinder Camps are specifically designed to meet the needs of our youngest campers. Camp activities are age-appropriate and designed to promote the emotional and physical needs of our campers.
Summer Nursery and Kinder Camps are available for either full-day (9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) or half-day (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) sessions. We provide a full lunch with a choice of hot entrees, sandwiches, salad bar and dessert in our air-conditioned dining hall. Each group has its own schedule, with the day divided into 40-minute periods. Camp groups rotate through age-appropriate activities, providing a different experience each day! Space is limited, so please register early!

Nursery Camp

Our Nursery Camp is for children ages three and four, who have successfully mastered toilet training. Preschoolers can enjoy fun indoor and outdoor activities with certified teachers specializing in preschool education or equivalent experience. Nursery Camp will help your child learn to share, take turns, and get along with other children. Nursery campers will enjoy the activity-filled days offering music, sports and games, arts and crafts, dance, gymnastics, and water activities (sprinklers only). We recognize the importance of free play to develop socialization and group skills, as well as making friends, so part of every day allows for self-guided play. Our staff provides lots of individual attention to create a successful camp experience. The counselor-to-camper ratio is 1:5, with a maximum group size of 18. Nursery Camp is great for building a child's sense of competence.

Kinder Camp

Kinder Camp is specifically for children entering kindergarten. Our Kinder Camp program provides opportunities for children to discover, investigate and explore through hands-on experiences. Head counselors are certified teachers and lead the campers through an action-packed day in music, dance, sports and games, arts and crafts, tennis, and swim lessons. Swim lessons are conducted on campus in our 20' by 40' above-ground pool that is four feet deep  no deep end. Our certified lifeguards provide the swim lessons with two guards in the water and one guard on deck. In addition, at least one group counselor remains at the pool to assist with group supervision.

Each day, campers have the opportunity for socialization through activities that foster sharing and cooperation. Our Kinder Camp program will help your child adjust to new environments and have a great sense of self. Our low staff-to-camper ratio of 1:6, with a maximum group size of 18, offers personal interaction and assistance to each camper. Adventures Kinder Camp helps children gain self-confidence and self-esteem by providing a supervised, positive environment.
