“My daughter always has so much fun at Preschool Camp.”

- Parent of Preschool camper

We now offer both a morning-only and a full-day Preschool camp in the summer, where our youngest campers (3 and 4 year olds) can participate in crafts, outdoor fun, games and more in a safe, nurturing environment with our well-trained professional staff members.

The Preschool camp’s home is Pomona Lodge, the second building on the right after driving in our Stokes Road entrance. Each Monday morning during check-in, Parents receive pick-up cards, which let our staff know who is authorized to pick up the child. These cards are to be distributed to all emergency contacts listed on the camper’s registration. Those without a proper pick-up card will be asked for identification for safety purposes, and parents will be contacted to verify. (MUST BE POTTY-TRAINED.)
