Day Camp for Kids in PK-K

Designed by a team of experienced teachers here at Waterford, PK-K Day Camp is an all-day, multi-sensory program, where campers who are 3 to 5 years old experience the outdoors daily, learn through nature explorations, STEM, music, dance, art, sports, story time, water games, and carefully conceived, self-directed play.

The activities of each week are tied to a unique, exciting question, are led by qualified teachers, and are assisted by energetic, young interns. In addition to the daily activities, there will be a field trip to Crestwood Park each week. 

It is essential that students in Day Camp be potty trained, and able to manage all bathroom needs on their own.
