For the 2-year-old camper Camp is an opportunity for our two-year-old friends to adapt to a new situation in a safe, nurturing environment. Routines are consistent and schedules are simple to ease the transition to a new setting. Our youngest campers practice their newly found independence while exploring each of the outdoor themes. Activities include books, art projects, pretend play and lots of physical activities. Campers attend one or more weeks in two-day, three-day or five-day sessions.
