Summer Camp Programs


Seedlings Half-Day Camps for Ages 4-6

Ages 4-6

AM Session: 9:30am-12:00pm

PM Session: 1:30pm-4:00pm

Adventurous and curious, preschoolers love to learn about nature through discovery and play. Each week, mini-lessons on the theme build campers' knowledge of natural concepts while games, crafts, hikes, animal encounters, and free-time to explore make learning tons of fun!

The five camp themes below repeat two to three times throughout the summer. Campers cannot be registered for the same theme more than once. Campers registered for more than one week per theme will be removed.
