For our youngest campers, entering kindergarten and first grade, we offer a wide array of activities and experiences that are inviting and age-appropriate. The Pioneers Camp provides campers with a positive, structured program designed to ease them into building new friendships and becoming more independent. Campers spend their days taking American Red Cross Swim Lessons and doing hands-on experiments in STEM. They explore their creativity in Music & Drama and Arts & Crafts. They challenge themselves in Sports and Gymnastics. In order to balance all of the high-energy activities that can fill their days, campers will also have quality time to do quiet activities that will build their group community and provide them a break from the fast-paced day. Campers will have weekly field trips on Wednesdays. This provides campers, especially incoming kindergarteners, time to get accustomed to bus rules and routines in a smaller, adult-supported environment.
