Great Programs for our Youngest Campers! February 28, 2011
At Hi-Hills Day Camp our youngest campers have a program all of their own called “Kinder Camp.” Children in this program, for ages 3 ½ to 6, participate in many of the same activities as the older campers, but the programs are scaled down to be appropriate for their age and supervised with a higher counselor-to-camper ratio.
One of the most important skills to be learned at a young age is how to swim, and we take special care to assure that young campers develop a high degree of water safety while also appreciating the fun that can be had in the pool. Our certified and experienced pool staff teaches children how to swim using the Red Cross Swim Instruction program, and campers receive instruction and free swim time every day.
Music and art play a big role in their summer activities. Campers sing, dance and laugh in our air-conditioned classrooms, and they put on performances several times during the summer for family and friends. Our art staff helps your child to create special projects…always a hit with little hands!
A variety of games and sports help Kinder Campers develop their hand-eye coordination and physical skills. Campers even get tennis instruction on one of our seven tennis courts!
Our nature program explores the outdoors with activities such as walking along a crystal clear stream catching minnows and salamanders, helping to plant a garden, taking hikes and collecting ferns to turn into fossils and helping care for our animals and reptiles.
Campers eat together in the dining hall where they will find healthy selections each day. You won’t need to worry about your picky eater, as the counselors help campers with their meals and eat alongside them. Speaking of eating, a favorite among Kinder Campers is the hands-on cooking class, where children will make yummy and nutritious snacks.
All of this is under the watchful guidance of our seasoned and caring staff. Our leaders are teachers trained and certified in Early Childhood education, who eagerly share their enthusiasm and knowledge with your child.
Don’t miss out on the fun, sign-up for summer camp. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
