Kinder Crew - All Summer Long

Campers Entering into Kindergarten

This program is specifically designed to meet the needs of campers entering kindergarten in the fall.  During each two-week session our staff runs age-appropriate activities for our campers, and campers with their transition from Pre-K to Kindergarten. Their program is very similar to our Cherryvale Day Camp program listed above with special attention and time given to transition time, social skills, and listening. 


We also offer several specialty camps. These programs have a specific activity focus. Campers spend the majority of their day engaging in their focus activity while still having the opportunity to enjoy many of our classic day camp activities like sprinkler day, playground time, and special theme days.
