Half-Day Activities & Exploration Camp

Kiddos ages 3 - 5 will learn new skills, gain independence, explore their interests, and just have fun. Our Mini Camps are packed with activities that will keep minds sharp and little bodies moving! Kids will have a BLAST with outdoor games, sports activities, art projects, and more during each themed week! Each week the kids will work to prepare a sing-a-long program to perform for their families on Thursdays at 12:45pm!
